The very best riding in Italy and see the Giro d’Italia.
Experience the cuisine, scenery and all things that are very, very Italian.
The Giro is the second longest running Grand Tour and famous for its epic mountain stages in the North of Italy. In a very Italian way all villagers celebrate the arrival of the Giro. The race coincides with the beginning of Summer and longer days in Europe, so locals celebrate with pizza, wine, limoncello, grappa and doof-doof music.
Bikestyle Tours hosted 5 trips with over 120 guests for the 100th edition. However, in a normal year we host either one or two trips depending on the tour route. Riding in Italy is inspiring, as the scenery is spectacular and locals cheer every passing cyclist.
Italian culture is one of the most loved and you must immerse yourself into it. We always experience things that are so, so Italian. With less international attention than the French tour, teams are more relaxed and give our guests more access to their riders.
The official route is normally released by November each year. In 2019 we’ll once again offer our fully supported trip catering for cyclists and non-cyclists following the most important stages at the back-end of the race.
Pre-book now is the only way to guarantee to secure your spot in 2019.
I'M A NON RIDER, ARE THERE SPECTATOR TRIPS?
We have trips with both riding and non-riding itineraries. The primary focus is seeing the race. On some days, we’ll visit the stunning villages that contribute to the food and culture of Italy.
They are great for a non-riding partner.

I'M A CYCLIST, SO HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?
Our premium trips cater for different riding abilities. We expect that guests have trained to prepare for their riding holiday.
Our easiest rides involve riding in a group at average speeds of more than 20km/hr (15miles/hr) on the flat.
Climbing is at your own pace.
