24 Jun Cycling, Italian style. We ride delightful Emilia Romagna
I’m not just in any part of Italy – I’m on the Adriatic coast of Emilia Romagna, and that’s significant because the region reared one of the world’s greatest cyclists, Marco Pantani. Winner of both the Tour de France and the Giro d’Italia in 1998, Pantani was one of the strongest climbers of his time. Riding the hills of Emilia Romagna, it’s easy to see where he got his cycling legs.
