This past May was our second time at Hotel Dory for a Italy Spring Cycling vacation.
Like before, my husband and I were immediately greeted by the staff with such friendliness and hospitality.
My husband is an avid road cyclist so he joined the Cappucino Super group while I was with the Bikeness group again.
The Bikeness guide, Sandro, recognized me right away even though it had been 2 years since our first visit to Hotel Dory. This time I was smart and rented the e-bike from the beginning.
The hills around Riccione are pretty challenging to a infrequent cyclist like myself, but with the assistance of the e-bike I was able to enjoy the beautiful countryside and breathtaking views (AND be physically active which was needed to balance the delicious food offered at Hotel Dory!) All of the different routes have their own unique charm and character.
The non-cycling activities were just as enjoyable, in particular the very memorable visit to the farmhouse of a local olive oil producer for a "tasting" (more like a meal!!) of local products like wine, cheese, olive oil and balsalmic vinegar.
We will definitely be going back to Hotel Dory in the future!
