The time has come for the 2017 Nove Colli. The Nove Colli is a Grand Fondo (Sportive) in Italy which covers 205km over 9 colls (mountains) and has over 3800m of climbing. It is an epic ride which this year Jon and Nick will tackle with several of our guests and over 12000 other riders. Tackling this event is not for the faint hearted but it will be a great achievement for any cyclists.
Nove Colli 2017
It has been running for 47 years and see thousands of cyclists each year try and tackle the roads. If the 205km ride wasn’t suitable then there is a 130km ride which covers 4 colls. Which in itself is still a very challenging ride!
This weekend will see the Hooked on Team head to Cesenatico in Italy to help represent our guests on their ride. We will be there capturing the moments and getting footage of the ride so future guests can see what goes on and see what the atmosphere is like. We are looking forward to heading out and watching the event. Make sure to check out our Facebook page as we will update with some photos from the live event on Sunday!
If you are looking for a great challenge then why not think about joining the 2018 Nove Colli or if you are still interested in a 2017 challenge then check out the 2017 Pantanissima Granfondo which is in September this year.
Check back soon for our write up and footage from this years event. In the meantime why not read about Jon’s 2016 Nove Colli experience.
