Cycling Holidays and Race viewing in Italy
The 2019 Giro d’Italia Race Route was announced in late October and Topbike has released our 2019 Giro Tour Itinerary following the final 10 days of this classic Italian bike race. Not to be missed, this is one of our favourite tours on our cycling calendar.
GIRO Tour – Join Topbike as we chase this grand Italian race through its final ten days with an ITT in Verona to finish.
East to west across the Dolomites we’ll ride, catching the Giro riders at starts, finishes, mountain tops and roadside views. You’ll be knocked out by the intricacies of grand tour racing. Not to mention the food, coffee, wine and variety of excellent accommodation (and not just 4 star hotels).
Topbike’s Lifestyle Italian Cycling holidays are non race focused and follow the roads, food, wine, language, coffee and all things Italian at a relaxed pace while cycling through some of our favourite places.
Classic Italian Climbs – Our Classic Climbs Tours are also known as Topbike’s “Feast of Ascension”.
Slow down and take your time, riding all the famous and classic climbs across the Italian Dolomites. Enjoy massive days on the bike, followed by evenings full of aperitivi, cucina tipica (local cooking) and local wines.
L’Eroica Tour – Tuscany & Chianti – Vintage bike ride in Tuscany, starting in Pistoia.
L’Eroica is more than an historic bike ride, it is a celebration of Tuscan, and Chianti culture. While every town provides water refill spots for the participants, most riders are here for the food, local products and, of course, wine! Who need nutritional supplements when you can sample an assortment of pecorino cheeses and a Cinta Senese sugo, washed down with a glass of Chianti Classico, during the ride?
