The International Bicycle Tour by the Sea has been held in Gabicce Mare since 1981, establishing it as one of Italy’s most important tourist events for cyclists.
The event is also a fixture on the calendar of the International Bicycling Union. Close to one thousand riders take part, accompanied by family members and friends. The participants, hailing from all parts of Europe and North America, meet each year to ride together on the area’s most charming roads, passing through picturesque towns and villages of the inland portion of the Marche and Romagna zones. The event gets underway with an organized welcome in the evening, and it concludes with the presentation of awards to the individual cycle-touring associations.

A message from Tour organiser Romeo Alberico:
"Everybody asks me why my tours are so inexpensive; the reason is that CanadaCyclesItaly is a hobby for me, not my primary source of income! And being Italian, and an ex-racer, I know all the ins and outs of cycling in Italy. I have a trusted team there who helps me select the best locations and organize my tours to the utmost satisfaction of everyone."
