And for lovers of cycle tourism there are 10 cycle routes, from the Via Romagna (463 km traced and protected between sea and hills that cross Romagna) to the Food Valley Bike (70 kilometers through the lands of Giuseppe Verdi and the places of origin of cured meats symbolizing the Italian tradition such as Culatello di Zibello), passing through Dante's Cycle Route (225 km from Ravenna to Florence on the path of the Supreme Poet) and the Po Delta Park Cycle Path (5,4 km along the water, completely surrounded from the Comacchio valleys).
Furthermore, around twenty product clubs are active on the Romagna Riviera (some connected to the Terrabici Consortium) with operators specialized in cycle tourism, to which around a hundred Bike Hotels are connected and to which are added, throughout the Region, another 200 hotels equipped and increasingly specialized in this tourist segment.
