The Novecolli (Nine Hills) is one of the most recognized amateur bike races in Europe: bringing together more than 12,000 participants every year to compete on the hills surrounding Cesenatico and the Adriatic Riviera.

Established in 1971 from the idea of the founders, the “Fausto Coppi” Cycling Group of Cesenatico, the Novecolli has become an unmissable cycling event for amateurs throughout Europe.

The event, which takes place in May, is structured along a long route of 200 km and a shorter course of 130 km, which allows cyclists of all levels to enjoy the beautiful spring scenery of Romagna, from the Adriatic Sea to the Apennine Mountains.
