The experience is built for all riders able to ride for 4-5 hours. This is not a race or high intensity riding, but rather a true epic cycling Experience into the exciting atmosphere of the Giro D’Italia and its legendary cols.
We will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride. On top of each major climb we will regroup to watch the pro peloton suffering, and then enjoy the descent together. As a team, we’ll support each other during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy!

MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN
We have selected some of the best stages offering a mix of all terrains, but there will be a lot of climbing!
The start from the Treviso is definitely not to hard, but after those sweet hills everything else is more demanding!
Some of the climbs can be challenging as well with some steep sections, but generally for short distances. The Stelvio and Agnello are the hardest climbs but definitely some of the highlights of the trip!
The descents are generally technical but well-paved and safe. There will be some rolling terrain as well, but honestly not much!
