Fratta – Novecolli
The path of the queen of the Gran Fondo italian races goes from Fratta Terme in the first part of approach to the hilly territory. It is therefore possible to retrace it in a very similar way to the original, re-proposing the sequence of physical commitments in the climbs and the consequent recovery in the descents. But NoveColli is not just a gym to express your cycling performances; it is also a splendid itinerary that allows you to meet the beauty of Romagna valleys, its typical villages, the warmth and hospitality of the inhabitants, now accustomed to a notable passage of cycle tourists along the roads.
The “Gran Fondo Novecolli” is a great challenge for every cyclotourist. If approached at a rapid pace it puts into test even the most expert agonists; at a tourist pace it will engage many hours on the saddle, putting a strain on your resistance. However, if you want to attempt it, we suggest you not to try it among the very first exits, but to use it as a final check on the form reached.
