Nove Colli 2013

Posted on October 17, 2012 at 3:03pm 3 Comments

It's a great cycling vacation in the Emilia-Romagna…

Hi All ... I'm on a cycling holiday in Riccione, Italy.

On Sunday, our group of about 15 from Toronto joined 12,000 others to ride in the Gran Fondo Nove Colli.

The 135 km short course includes 4 major climbs. They are each about 7 kms long, with 5% average gradient and a maximum 18% gradient.

Our times ranged from 5 hours to 8 hours. I came in at 7 hours and 14 minutes, but the total ride time on my computer was just over 6 hours. I stopped at…
