Versilia Bike Festival

Versilia is a year-round destination. With its mild climate and varied terrain it offers beautiful beaches and a green hinterland and nature parks, making it ideal for hiking, trekking and for a mountain bike marathon. The old medieval pilgrim route, the Via Francigena, passes through here, just one element of the area’s fascinating history and heritage.

This is the natural location for the Versilia Bike Festival, an event awaited with great excitement by both cycling tourists and hard-core professionals. In fact, we’re seeing ever-more tourists who favour sustainable transport options and green tourism. In Versilia, on the 11th and 12th of May you’ll be able to experience contact with nature and immerse yourself in breathtaking landscapes. As well as bikes, we’ll be expecting other green vehicles too, as well as craft markets, food stands and entertainment for all the family.

There will be a wide variety of options. The whole event starts with relaxing bike rides from Viareggio to Forte dei Marmi and up to the MTB in the Apuan Alps. The Versilia Granfondo will be held on 12 May, consisting of 3 routes, which all start from Viale Kennedy in Lido di Camaiore. The Percorso Marathon will be 125km with a climb of 2,480m, the Percorso Classic of 95km climbs 1,920m, and the Percorso Light at 30km will climb 550m.

Or you could just plan some trips out to the surrounding area, around the hills of Camaiore or to Lake Massaciuccoli. We recommend a visit to the beautiful medieval villages and churches of the area and enjoy the hospitality for which we’re famous.

And after a day in the saddle, why not ensure you get some pampering and relaxation with our spa treatments? Then finish off the evening in our exclusive restaurant to savour the specialties and products of the region.

We look forward to seeing you at the Grand Hotel & Riviera in Lido di Camaiore.
