The Carpegna climb is best known as Marco Pantani's favorite training ground - and at 11%+ grades for 7km - it was a perfect place for the late climbing sensation to hone his legendary skills. I'd long wanted to ride it for myself, and got the chance this year while visiting the bike Hotel Lungomare in Cesenatico.

Giro'14 St.8: Marco Pantani's famous training climb the Carpegna is not far from Ale's home on the Adriatic - which made or a fine day at the Giro d'Italia with Mrs. F and his son Mario. It's less about the race and more about a day out with family, all under a perfect sky.
