Topbike Tour Itinerary Now Announced
2023 Edition: Giro d’Italia
'Follow the Corsa Rosa' with Topbike Tours
9 days (8 nights) fully supported. This is a ‘chase the race’ tour with the focus being on seeing all the components of a Grand tour: Start sign-ons, Sprints, Stage Finishes, Hill top climbs and the ability to ride at least part of the course/stage where possible. At the Giro you can immerse yourself in race excitement and see world class riders close up.
With Topbike, we’ll chase the Giro d’Italia through Lombardia, in and out of Trentino, and the Veneto, up the passes of Valcava, Sevino, Valpiana, Santa Barbara, Bordala, Matassone, Verrada, Monte Bondone, Pordoi (3 times) Sella, Gardena, Campolongo and the Marmolada, through the Sud Tirol and the Dolomites. You’ll love the backdrop of the vineyards, the olive groves and the mountains of the Dolomites.
We’ll start with two nights in the ‘Old Town’ of Bergamo, high on the hill in the ‘Citta Alta’ two nights on Monte Bondone, where a stage hilltop finish is close to our hotel. We’ll finish with four nights at Arabba, where we’ll ride not just the Sella Ronda but a whole lot more, and a stage will pass the door of our hotel.
This is a fantastic event, where you can really get in touch with these world class riders. We ride most mornings, encompassing parts of the stages the riders will be competing on. We get to see the riders on the road, climbs and finishes.

- We could take to the road ahead of the peloton, and see how far we get?
- Or we could shortcut through to Cortina, a beautiful Italian ski town, that once hosted the winter Olympics, and was also used as the location for the snow scape scenes in OO7’s 'For Your Eyes Only’. It’s 80k to our North-east, along the course (or 40k, if you go directly), and a great location to watch the race pass through.
- Or simply ride to the top of Campolongo, Valparola (32k) or Passo Giau (60k). Note well that riding to the top of Giau is never, ever simple.
