Most of the day takes us through vacation-land along the coast. Could be busy, and should be of anthropological interest to witness the summer pasttime of so many north Europeans. We will pass by some well known places such as Rimini or Pesaro. The latter will pose the first challenge of the day as we need to climb up 122 meters before we get to town.

Pesaro, about 95 km into the ride, could also be a place to take a break for lunch. The track ontinues to Ancona with a few little hills here and there, nothing worth mentioning. Out of Ancona we will hit the hills around Monte Conero (which rises to 572 meters above sea level) and climb up to Poggio and Massignano (we won’t go higher than 250 meters though) before dropping down to Sirolo, our destination for the day.
