Bike hotel: from Pesaro, the Marche region on wheels
… the passion for wheels, both bikes and motorbikes, was passed on us by our grandfather Adamo Tomassini.
Adamo owned one of the few bicycle workshops in Pesaro. He was used to welcome in his laboratory many bike lovers, who only allowed “Damin” to take care of their bicycles.
He was very meticulous, but willing to work only for people he liked and with who he built a special bonding over time. To the others, he simply and kindly pointed another workshop further up the road.
When he was not in the workshop, he was used to hop on his Triumph and get to Bologna and other circuits to watch bike racings. He was often in company of his friend Dorino Serafini, known sportsman, one of the few who won races both with Ferrari cars and Benelli bikes. Benelli is one of the oldest factories in Pesaro.
The list of his clients includes Livio Isotti – professional runner who also won one stage in the Tour the France.
We grandsons still remember our grandpa Adamo repairing a bike puncture for us, using some sandpaper, mastic and patch (“pezzolina”, as he was used to refer to). Watching him while he was fixing the inner tube was priceless and we still have a lovely memory of it.
This is why, having guests from over 50 Countries who are passionate for bikes and we being lovers (we pratice it, we enjoy it but only as… amateurs) of this sport, we decided in 2017 to implement the hotel with a more qualified service, creating and area equipped for cyclists.
