If you aren’t half-blind from an all-out effort you can enjoy some of the landmarks painstakingly recreated by Zwift’s artists. We begin at Piazza Maggiore, which is the main square in the heart of Bologna. Other sights here include the Basilica di San Petronio and Fountain of Neptune.
Next, we cover some cobbled streets lined with arcades, past Porta San Felice (the westernmost gate of medieval Bologna).
The climb begins at Arco del Meloncello with a sharp right hairpin. You’ll know you’re halfway up the climb when you hit another right hairpin and go under the stone arch. When you see the Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca you’ll know you’re almost there. And when you see the giant Scottie inflatable, give it all you’ve got over the line!
