Summer by bycicle

Get in shape with the bike!

 

Bike season continues even in summer at the Dory Hotel!

Vacation is the best to devote time and energy to wellness and fitness … and if you love relaxing with your bike, Dory is the right hotel for you!

The 5 weekly excursions are just some of the activities organized, for those who want to cycling even on vacation and they are the best for lovers of new adventures and new bike paths!

5 days a week, wake up early, a good breakfast and go for a nice ride in the wonderful Romagna’s outback, returning to the base, Riccione, for the lunch.

Every Thursday the cycling tour is enhanced by the gastronomic experience and tasting of fine wines and cheeses on the farm!

And.. for companions …? They can choose between  relaxing on the beach, boating or Nordic Walking tours two days a week!

And if you love nature and evenings in company, what could be better than a nice dinner at the fresh air of the hill ?

Do not give up the dinner in our family home at Vecciano! We organize it every two weeks and is the perfect oasis where to find some respite from the heat and bustle of the beach!

So do not send your bike on holiday and book at the hotel Dory …. bike season never stops!

Second visit to Hotel Dory

Second visit to Hotel Dory

This is my second visit to Hotel Dory and a biking holiday in Italy. We are 26 Canadians trying to extend our biking season. Have been on three fabulous rides so far and looking forward to two more rides.
Had a great ride yesterday, did 123 km with our guide Andrea. He is a very good rider. We had good support along the way with the Dory van providing lunch and assistance with the bikes. We had three flats but they were very quickly repaired by our guide. We are riding excellent Scott carbon bikes and all of our mechanical needs are being taken care of.

The country side began to take over and give more room more the delicious frangrances of grapes heavy on the vine and flowers opening to the sun. Out guide stopped us a a quaint, quintessential Italian Castle for photos. The exuberance of the guide for taking photos allowed our group to connect more.

San Marino Route

San Marino Route

This is my first experience on an Italian Cycling Week. I have been on other 7 day and 10 day tours in the united States and Canada but this is without a doubt the best cycling holiday bar none. From the beginning The Staff at Hotel Dory, awesome hotel in Riccione in Italy, was exceptional all the time and they do not have NO in their vocabulary. Everything that we requested came with a smile no matter how busy they were at any time night or day. The Guides were friendly, kmowledgeable and accommodating.
