About us

We had a great time and the food, facilities and bikes and guide were fantastic.
We cannot make the September trip but would definitely be up for next April again.

I would def recommend to anyone and please pass on our gratitude to everyone at the Hotel Riz". I had a good time, hotel good food good and our guide was very good. I am hoping to join you again next April. Thank you for all the organizing you did". Everything was very good and I really enjoyed the stay. A couple of points that would be worth passing on: It would be handy if energy drinks and gels were available to buy/order from the hotel. More microwaves for cooking lunch”. “I would like to say I had a really lovely time in Italy, Good hotel, good food, good company and good rides out. I will be looking to go again and would like the same room as this year for next year. Just waiting for conformation on the holiday time off at work.

A few days after Cesenatico and almost a busy working week and I’m feeling the benefit of the Training Camp. It was an excellent week, I enjoyed it immensely.

A chance to focus of riding and training away from home and work distractions. It was great to see others making their own decisions and getting what they needed out of the time in Italy. Brilliant!
As this was our first trip to Cesenatico we were unsure what to expect however it surpassed all our expectations excellent hotel ,food and riding. The group were all very welcoming and encouraging which was really important for me being the only female rider and it has certainly increased my confidence to take my turn on the front of a ride.
Thank you for your impeccable organisation . It makes the camp what it is. It was brilliant! Please would you include me for next year. Best wishes
It was the best training camp i have been on
A big thanks for organising such a great trip, thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to next year’s camp, so if you could provisionally add me to the booking list.
Please put me down for May 2016. I think the camp went so well partly because of your organisation of the hotel and travelling arrangements which made the week flow smoothly, in addition I found the guides to be very responsible for the groups and the hotel staff very pleasant and accommodating Many thanks
I just wanted to say how grateful I am for being able to come to Cesanatico.
Life changing.
It was my 5th time in a row and the best by far! I'm tempted to go back before the end of the summer season the value great people keep me coming back.

The Hotel Riz in Cesenatico provided a truly excellent base for a club cycling holiday in Italy. Terrific routes (challenging if you want them) and good guides...

made a day out in the saddle really good fun. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly and did a great job in making our stay enjoyable. The food was fantastic and the availability of pasta at the end of a ride meant that we hardly had to spend anything during the day apart from coffee and cakes. The fact that we could put our cycling clothes out for a wash and have them back ready for the next morning was a really nice touch. It was also a great value holiday and easy to organise! Would I go again? Well, I have already been twice (in 2014 and 2015) and I am about to start planning for May 2016
