Cycling Holiday in Riccione, Italy 2020
As most of you may know, for the past few years, I have been making arrangements with the Hotel Gambrinus in Riccione on the East Coast of Italy, for a group of us to stay with them for a week. There were 24 of us last year staying at the hotel who put on Tour Guides every day for groups of different ability over 35 to 55 mile rides.
I am the central point of contact with the hotel but people have to book their own travel arrangements using Bologna or Rimini airports.
The week proposed for next year is 25th April to 2nd May and I will be talking to the hotel before the end of September to try to get a block reservation of rooms and bikes to hire.
As a guide, in 2019 the price per person sharing a twin or double room was 49 euro plus city tax. This is full board, including wine at the dinner table in the evening. Bikes are about 90 euro a week (you need your own insurance). Return air fares were between £70 and £120 depending on when you book etc and an extra coach fare will be payable if flying in to Bologna.
The hotel is not massive and priority will be given to WCC members / friends who have been before.
Full details to follow in due course but it is important for us to look at a potential group number to get rooms and bikes reserved in advance.
With this in mind, please could you indicate your level of interest to me by September 22nd 2019 by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that it’s a cycling holiday and not a training week
