The 52th Edition of the Nove Colli granfondo will take place on Sepetmber 23rd, 2023. 

The goal of Fausto Coppi Cesenatico is to organize its first cycle tour with a vintage flavor. We want to savor the taste of pedaling together without a stopwatch, in perfect 80s style.

The event could bring thousands of cyclists, even poorly prepared, to the roads with the sole desire of spending time together on their bicycles, and with the hope that it will mark a new start for everyone and everything.The Gran Fondo Nove Colli  is one of Italy’s most famous cycling events and with over 12,000 riders predicted in 2019 it’s one of the most popular too. Nove Colli is Italian for Nine Hills and a quick glance at the route profile below confirms why.

The stunning scenery as you climb through Italian hills before descending back down the Adriatic coast is one of many reasons why cyclists who love to travel should add the Nove Colli to the ‘to do’ list. Add in a splash of Italian wine, great food and a seaside resort steeped in the history of Marco Pantani, Fausto Coppi and four decades of hosting Gran Fondo’s and the Giro d’Italia and you have the recipe for a classic Italian Gran Fondo. The event dates back to 1971 when 17 riders took part.
