A circular itinerary that can be considered a “classic” because of the Rimini hinterland; in short, a ride that should not be missed!
Through the San Marino suburb of Ventoso (a crest of Monte Titano, so named because of its exposure to air currents, but for precisely this reason it offers panoramas of the Romagna Riviera) you reach Verucchio; this mountain scale is an absolute must and has hosted the passage of some editions of the Coppa Placci, as well as different stages of the Giro d’Italia.
Having reached Verucchio, whose fortress and small centre are a testament to the history of this village, closely linked to the Malatesta family, you should stop in the main square, a meeting place for all passing cyclists.
The tour then continues to “Coste di Sgrigna”, a fun stretch of “mangi e bevi” with slight slopes and mildly challenging short sprints leading to the foot of Covignano Hill, the hillock located behind the city of Rimini, where the ancient Roman baths of Galvanina stand.
From here you can quickly reach Rimini’s historical centre, where with each pedal you discover monuments and evidence of a glorious past that, since its foundation in the Roman era (268 B.C.) led the city to be the cradle of the Malatesta Signoria and the “capital” of the Romagna Riviera.
