GRANFONDO DEGLI SQUALI 2018
Cattolica is already geared up to host a new Challenge: on the 11th, 12th and 13th of May 2018 we’ll be welcoming seasoned cyclists to the 4th edition of the Granfondo degli Squali, an addictive, long-distance bike race that grows exponentially every year.
The Hotel Ines, partner and sponsor of the race, is just a short ride from the starting line at the Cattolica Aquarium, which is also where the event’s closing festivities will be held.
There are two routes to choose from: the short route that is 80 km (vertical drop 1250 m) and the long route that is 145 km (vertical drop 2400 m). Both of these routes cross the beautiful landscape of Romagna and the Marches and meet at the finish line in Gabicce Monte. There you’ll be rewarded with a typical dish of Rustida di Pesce (lightly breaded, grilled bluefish), piadina (a delicious local flatbread), and a lovely glass of Sangiovese.
