For 2021, we have three lap and two lap events. All except men (Espoir & Seniors) have the option of riding two laps or three. Prizes for men are awarded in the three lap event, whilst prizes for all other categories of rider are awarded in the two lap event. Usually, all except men and a few veterans ride the two lap event.
The event has again been sponsored by Hotel Milano Helvetia, Riccione in Italy (www.hotelmilano.net), one of the area’s famous “Bike Hotels”. The hotel is offering prizes of 2 five day stays at the hotel on their “Plus” package for cyclists, one for the winner of the Men’s/Espoirs’ in the 3-lap event and one for the winner of Women in the 2-lap event. During their stay, the package will give our winners bed, breakfast, evening meal and post-ride afternoon buffet along with the assistance of a guide to show them the best local routes (with the hotel’s other guests of course). The prizes don’t include air fares but many UK airports have budget routes to destinations in north eastern Italy which allow easy transfers to the hotel by bus, train or taxi. Bike hire is available at the hotel.
The Hotel Milano Helvetia will, in addition, be offering a 10% reduction on the cost of their stay (excluding extras like bike hire and bar bills, of course) to ALL ENTRANTS to the event!
