In the summer, Hotel Dory in Riccione, Italy is filled with European visitors enjoying the beautiful Adriatic beaches. The family owners saw opportunity in the spring and fall when the weather is ideal for cycling. Cyclists from around the world come to Hotel Dory to enjoy the terrific countryside and coastline.  With a full fleet of carbon road bicycles, a crew of experienced Italian guides, three delicious and healthy daily buffets, cozy rooms, and après cycling gatherings, Stefano (the hotel proprietor) and his team have created a cyclist’s dream.  Each day guides lead different routes designed for five levels of ability.  Come as a group or meet up with others and you will be sure to return year after year as so many do. One would expect such a program to be very expensive but as one client put it, “It’s cheaper than staying home!” Book through your American hosts Fern and Joe Wagner for a discount.
Cycling Levels
We know that when you’re cycling it isn’t great to be left behind or to have to wait for those who aren’t as fit as you either! That’s why Hotel Dory has 5 groups for different preparation levels, each with a maximum of 15/18 cyclists. Cyclists can thus choose the right group for them, ensuring everyone gets the most fun from this great sport. You may also change groups during the week to suit your daily riding needs.
“BIKENESS” GROUP: La Dolce Vita programmes use their bicycles to help them discover the territory from a privileged vantage point. That’s why they cycle in tranquillity, admiring the surrounding views and without worrying about the kilometre indicator, the average speed or the total distance covered uphill. They go on excursions that cover 40 – 60 km, always divided into small groups and accompanied by an expert guide: easy and fun trips during which there’s plenty of time to take a break or a photo or have a coffee and lots of laughs. Naturally, they also tackle some climbs, but at their own pace and sometimes even on foot.
“CAPPUCCINO LIGHT” GROUP: Itineraries of 65/75 km per day with average speed of 17-19 km/h (10-12mph).
“CAPPUCCINO” GROUP: Itineraries of 80/100 km per day, average speed 20-22 km/h (12-14 mph). Recommended for well-trained cyclists.
“CAPPUCCINO SUPER” GROUP: Similar itineraries as Cappuccino group, but faster and a little longer”. Average speed of 23-25 km/h (14-16mph) Recommended for very well-trained cyclists.
“LIMONCINO” GROUP: Itineraries of 90/120 km per day, average speed 26-28 km/h (16-18 mph). Designed for VERY well-trained cyclists who have already covered between 2,000 and 2,500 km and want to really enjoy some of our great climbs.
