WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?

The days leading up to the races we will do a course recon at a moderate pace and ensure proper recovery after each ride; no high intensity unless you want to!
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 at his own pace. Our team of expert guides will support each rider during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy.
All cyclists interested in granfondo, race atmosphere, and magnificent scenery will enjoy this incredible experience!
