Gran Fondo Nove Colli 24th May 2020
Gran Fondo Nove Colli: Amazing value at ONLY 599 euro!!!
We think we offer the best value GF Nove Colli Package around but if you don’t believe us check out what our guests have to say about us on Trip Advisor!!!
If you have visited Riccione before you will have heard of The Nove Colli. If you have not then we will tell you more. The Nove Colli (translation is “Nine Hills”) is what the Italians call a Gran Fondo, a mass participation timed bike ride.
Don’t worry if 9 hills sounds to much, there is also a Medio Fondo with just 4 hills….and you don’t need to decide before the day which to ride, you can see how your legs feel and decide en-route!
Each and every year there are nearly 13,000 entrants of all ages, shapes & sizes from all over the world who all came to sample the atmosphere of this great day.
We organize all aspects of the event on your behalf, from arranging your entry, collecting your race pack and transporting you to and from the event itself. In fact, the only thing we do not do is ride it for you although we may well ride it with you!!! All this is included in the price which is based on our Plus Package.
Why not come ride it with us?!?!?

BOOKING & CANCELLATION POLICY:
Milano Helvetia hotel require a 100 euro per person room deposit for each booking. For Gran Fondos (ie Nove Colli) we ask an additional 100 euro payment so that we may pay your race registration fees and other associated costs on your behalf.
We do appreciate that sometimes unexpected things happen and are happy to accept cancellations. However, due to an unusual amount of these and our incurred costs, we have had to introduce an ’’administration fee’’ of 50 euro for any cancellations. In this instance, the amount would be deducted from your 100 euro room deposit refund.
For Gran Fondo’s, we are unfortunately unable to refund your 100 euro race entry fees as we have to pay this sum out in advance on your behalf and are ourselves unable to obtain a refund for these costs.
Thank you for your understanding.
