Gran Fondo degli Squali starts at the aquar­ium in Cat­tolica, right along the coast of the Adri­atic Sea. For those who don’t speak Ital­ian, and if the shark mas­cots in the pho­tos on the web­site don’t give it away, “squali” trans­lates to sharks. Par­tic­i­pants can be­come cy­cling sharks for the day, hunt­ing the hills along the 136-km or 84-km routes that loop in­land for the climbs be­fore fol­low­ing the coast­line to the fin­ish in Gabicce Monte. The fin­ish, as with any com­plete fondo, in­cludes food – seafood, in this case – and a cel­e­bra­tion.
