Now that it’s getting warmer and the days are getting longer there’s a growing desire to spend time outdoors, perhaps relaxing by taking a lovely walk or cycle ride.
For example, as well as being a great pastime, a cycle ride is also a panacea for our health that gets circulation moving again and burns off some calories in preparation for the summer and the dreaded swimming costume test.
If you like cycling, spring sees a great variety of new offers from the Hotel Dory in Riccione
, one of the first and most important bike hotels in Italy. In fact, the hotel has a holiday package to suit everyone.
The Dory has designed a great-value-for-money holiday formula for all guests who live overseas - the "Fly & Bike 2011" fixed-rate package.
By booking both your flight and accommodation with the Hotel Dory, you always pay the same rate for any period from 27 March to 15 June and from 3 September to 29 October 2011.
You can stay at the hotel for just 74 euro per person per night on super half board, whilst the flight will always cost 150 euro return, inclusive of taxes. Wind Jet and Air Vallée flights will connect Rimini airport and Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Denmark and France.
If you want to leave your bike at home, the Hotel Dory offers you the chance to hire a Scott bike on the package at just 109 euro per week. Our hotel in Riccione is the first test centre for “Scott” road bikes in Italy.
Call the Hotel Dory on +39 0541.642896 or send an e-mail to booking.hoteldory.it and book your surprise-free “flight + hotel” package. Rates will remain unchanged for both periods and for the entire duration of the offer.
And that’s not all. This year, the Hotel Dory has designed a programme for cyclists who want to have fun; called “Bikeness®”, it gives guests the opportunity to discover our territory on their bikes. Even if you haven’t trained you can take part in the programme on an electric bike. This way, everyone can have carefree fun.
Hotel Dory guests can hire an electric bike at a weekly rate of 140 euro or even on a daily basis.
On 11 May, “Bikeness” guests have the chance to take part in Geocatching, an innovative treasure hunt on either racing or electric bicycles in which participants, called “geocatchers”, get around using a GPS receiver, discovering in the meantime the beautiful landscape and hidden spots of our territory.
Is your husband a cycling enthusiast, whilst you prefer going to the beach with the children? No worries! From today the Hotel Dory can solve all your problems thanks to the “Summer Bike & Family” package. He can ride his bike, while you relax on the beach enjoying more flexible mealtimes. In fact, a buffet will be served at 2.30 pm for cyclists whilst, on this package, those who accompany them - that is, their wives and children - can have lunch at the hotel with all the other guests. Unlike the traditional “bike” formula where everyone used to eat at the same time, guests are offered greater flexibility that will make them feel right at home.
The “Nove Colli” cycling race, one of the most famous long-distance races in Italy and Europe that each year attracts numerous participants from all over the world, will take place on 22 May 2011. The race leaves from the canal harbour in Cesenatico, birthplace of Marco Pantani, and passes through some of the most beautiful cities in Romagna, covering a total distance of about 200 km. Those competing for victory include professionals, as well as simple cycling tourism enthusiasts.
As it does each year, the Hotel Dory it participating in the event and provides assistance for all cyclists who also want to take part.
