Join at the Giro d'Italia! 16-23 May

Join us at the fabulous Belvedere Bike Hotel in Riccione for a fantastic week of riding and Giro-watching!

We’ve been going to the Hotel Belvedere for many years now, and we keep on coming back. This year our week there coincides with the Giro d'Italia, and the hotel will be organizing three ways to see it: a stage departure, a stage finish and a ride-by. Plus, there will be a prize draw giving two guests the chance to ride the De Rosa Team car.

We've set up a dedicated page on our Bike Live website with all the details. But the TL;DR is this: the Hotel Belvedere is literally* second to none as a European holiday destination, and it's always a fantastic week, with great company and superb cycling. Marina and her team always pull out the stops to make your stay extra special, and the Giro d'Italia being in town just adds to the week's excitement. We'll be living the Italian dream from 16–23 May this year, and we'd love for you to join us out there!
