On April 17th 2020 the Granfondo Via del Sale in Cervia is back, a few steps away from the 4-star Hotel Universal and the 3-star Hotel Diplomatic belonging to the Batani Select Hotels group.
Three routes of 77 km, 118 km and 174 km each, very different from each other in technique and physical effort, designed to satisfy all the two wheels-lovers; moreover a gourmet route of 40 km has been added and designed for the supporters of the granfondisti and cyclo-gastronomy lovers. Who has muscles and minds prepared to face the long route can test himself in the five climbs, all joined by the splendid scenery of the hills of Romagna region: Montecavallo, Monte Finocchio, Monte Pietra, the legendary Cima Pantani on Montevecchio, dedicated to the Pirate and now symbol of the Via del Sale, and the Paderno / Colinello.
While the Granfondo takes place, the entire weekend, from Friday 3th May to Sunday 5th May, will be enriched by a lot of events designed for everyone: entertainment for children, the Granfondo beach party with music and shows, experiences to satisfy bicycle's fans and their families. Over a hundred companies of bike industry will introduce their latest products at their stands set along the promenade of Cervia. A real outdoor fair, with no entrance ticket, which will be open on Saturday until 10 pm during the Granfondo Party evening.
On the occasion of this important sport event, the 4-star Hotel Universal in Cervia and the 3-star Hotel Diplomatic offer special rates and tailor-made proposals to the athletes and their families. The best place to be thanks to their strategic position: facing the sea and with a large covered and heated pool.
