The 2014 Giro d’Italia, the first of the Grand Tours, the one that never fails to deliver some of the most exciting moments of the year. Riding a bike in Italy over the roads of the Giro has to be experienced once in a lifetime. The 2014 Giro looks like another real test of endurance for the pros but a more relaxed experience for Bikestyle guests who will enjoy the wonderful cycling, food and relaxed lifestyle Italy offers. Choose from two great trips, our Nove Colli Gran Fondo trip through Tuscany, or our popular Giro trip taking in the decisive stages in the majestic Alps and Dolomites.

In 2014 Bikestyle Tours has 2 great trips to choose from! First off there’s a great 8 day trip seeing 2 stages of the Giro, riding through beautiful Tuscany, then onto the Nove Colli Gran Fondo before finishing off with a visit to the Ferrari Museum in Modena. Then there’s our great Dolomites trip with stunning scenery, terrific riding including one of the world’s best rides, the Sella Ronda and a  focus on the final week of the Giro and the decisive mountain stages of Monte Zoncolan, Passo dello Stelvio and Santuario d’Oropa.
Or for total Italian experience why not combine the two with a day off to visit Milan in between! Browse down the page for a brief description and links to the complete itineraries!

Client Comments

A great article from David Roche who came with us in 2012

Grazie and Pat
Thanks heaps for a top tour. I loved it! You were great hosts and leaders.
We are enjoying La Tour at the moment and thinking enviously of you…..
Cheers

Thank you Bikestyletours for a fantastic Giro 2013. Under trying weather conditions Pat and his team made this a trip to forever remember the daily changes to our itinerary were handled so well it was like it was the original schedule. The accommodation was first class and nothing was a problem for Pat and his team Grace Liz and Fabrizio. And the Bus driver what a legend, will always remember the drive thru the blizzard going to Aprica.
Thanks to everyone for a trip ofa lifetime (till next year)

I would like to thank you very much – we all had a great tour and enjoyed the full trip. In particular I would like to make mention of Sarah and Grace and Patrick – they were all excellent and each provided a different but unique experience to the tour. Sarah’s bubbly Italian character was perfect to showcase Italy. I think we would all happily take her back to Australia with us. We were very lucky to have Patrick along for the rides – without him and his GPS I think you would be still trying to find us. Grace’s knowledge of wines was superb whilst her stewardship kept us all on track.

Hi Natalie,
Thank you for writing, I personally had a great trip and the memories will stay with me for a long time, if I am fortunate enough to be able to do another trip in the future it will be hard to decide between the Giro or TDF!
Cheers

Hi Natalie and the team.
My sincere thanks go to you and the team. I had a truly outstanding time and it was an amazing experience, one where I can’t wait until Scott (my partner) can join me for another Bikestyle Tour.
Laurie, yourself, Pat, Grace and Sim were all sensational, everything ran smoothly and we couldn’t have been better looked after. I was only sad it had to come to an end. I have fond memories of the trip and had a fantastic time.
The organisation, energy, enthusiasm, care and attention you give your clients is exceptional – in my view you have a winning formula. The rides were awesome, the hotel accommodation of a high standard, the tour guides fantastic in every way. Well done to you and the team.
Kind regards
Mary
