I travelled with a small group to Riccione and stayed in the wonderful Hotel Dory. It was one of the best experiences of my cycling life. The hospitality of all the Hotel staff was second to none. The guides were so informative and they catered for all level of cyclist. We met usually around 8.30am after a lovely breakfast and then travelled into the beautiful countryside with one of the very experienced guides. The bikes we hired were top notch and there was a great support system in place if one encountered any serious problems on route. The trip I preferred was the undulating trip to San Marino where we meandered up the sleepy climb to this beautiful principality. Well wort all the effort on the climb and to spend a beautiful hour over a coffee and soak in the beautiful landscapeThe weather was fab and the coffee stops were to die for with some fantastic views of the Italian landscape. The meals in the hotel were varied every evening and I would have complaint at all about this fantastic hotel……they also cater for families an added bonus.
