2019 Giro Classico – In short

2019 Giro d’Italia Tours and Trips

Bikestyle Tours has been running trips to the Giro d’Italia for over 15 years, back then it was following the charismatic Marco Pantani and Mario Cippolini. In 2019 our Giro Classico tour focuses on the iconic locations and visits some of the lesser known climbs of this year’s Giro d’Italia route.

You’ll experience the very best riding in Italy and see the Giro d’Italia 2019. Great pizza, pasta, gelato, coffee and the best hot chocolate. It is a popular trip for the cuisine, scenery and all things that are very, very Italian. We have our normal riding and non-riding itineraries. But we’ll also offer our experienced cyclists more time on the bike to conquer more vertical metres on some of the most magical roads in Europe.

Our trip starts in the Piedmont region, famous for its wine, cuisine and as its name indicates, the foot of the mountains. Our first test comes on the race route between Cuneo and Pinerolo. We then follow the peloton through the mountains and experience watching the race over summits.

In the Aosta Valley, we’re spoiled for climbing. For a scenic diversion, you’ll have the opportunity to take the skyway up to a vista across to Mont Blanc and across the Alps. Later in the trip, you have the option to take the scenic Bernina Express railway to St Moritz.

Click on our video to find out about our 2019 Giro d’Italia tour plans.

Also, a regular highlight on our Giro d’Italia Trip is our ride around Lake Como in Lombardia with the climb up to Madonna del Ghisallo, as the pros will do. It continues with a spectacular 3 days that follow, the Passo Dello Stelvio, Passo Gavia and the mighty Mortirolo.

Our final part of our trip takes us to the Dolomites, with close access to the final mountain stages, where we expect to see the decisive move of the 102nd Giro d’Italia. Before transferring to Verona for the final time trial, we’ll conquer Monte Grappa, which is a rite of passage for any cyclist in Italy.

If you haven’t seen the Giro d’Italia, make 2019 your year and come with Bikestyle Tours. We will see the most important stages, and when the tour caravan travels long distances we’ll base ourselves in the iconic regions of Northern Italy. Thus, minimising long transfers and maximising our time for riding and relaxing.

Itinerary

Day 1 – Wednesday 22nd May: Buongiorno, Welcome to Italy

Our trip starts with your guides meeting you at the Milan Malpensa Airport at 10 am. Milan is a diverse city and it’s location on the Po Plain makes it the headquarters for many of the famous Italian brands. Designers, artists and photographers are also drawn to the city, all of the Italian designers have retail outlets in Milan. Culturally, there are many interesting buildings, palazzos and art galleries. Arrive a day or two earlier, adjust to the time zone and enjoy the fashion capital, the city of glamour.

After a short transfer to Piedmont (literally the foot of the mountain), we will assemble our bikes and head out on a short warm-up ride. Our first ride in Italy allows us to shake off some travel legs and test out your bike for your Giro d’Italia cycling holiday. We’ll stick to the valley and ride through some of the villages. We’ll also head up a small climb, part of tomorrow’s stage to test your low gears.

Our accommodation for the next 2 nights is a 4-star Castello hotel with private grounds, a swimming pool and a wellness centre. Perched on the hillside, before the alps, it once served to protect the underlying village. Piedmont is a rich food production area with fertile plains. The highlight regional product is its black and white truffle.

Tonight, our welcome dinner will be prepared with the finest local ingredients and served with an accompanying regional wine. This evening is a great social opportunity to meet your fellow guests and your staff. Most importantly, have your questions answered by your helpful staff.

Day 2 – Thursday 23rd May: Legendary – Fausto Coppi 70 years on and a stage finish

Being a short stage today, it will start early afternoon. This will give lots of time for a morning ride before seeing the Giro d’Italia race later in the day. The most exciting part of today’s course is the short and snappy climb through Pinerolo. We’ll head there on our bikes. As with each day on our itinerary, we have an easier ride option as well as something more challenging.

Giro d’Italia 2019

Our easier option is to stay on the flatter roads and ride to Pinerolo, stopping for coffee in a beautiful village along the way, about 65km. If you’d like it a bit shorter, you can start your ride from our coffee stop. The challenging ride will take a slightly different route after our coffee stop and tackle today’s main climb, to Montoso. A solid short climb to start our trip, averaging 9.4% grade for 9 km. In Italy, I’d suggest hiding your gradient from your Garmin display!

Both rides will have us in Pinerolo well before the Giro d’Italia race finish. For those managing a steady pace, you’ll see the race twice through the village. Grab a gelati before the final lap and have a stroll through the wonderful architecture and pedestrian areas of Pinerolo. We’ll return to our hotel for another dinner tonight.

TODAY IN THE GIRO D’ITALIA RACE
Stage 12: Cuneo to Pinerolo ***, 146km
Riders will have the alps and the ever impressive Monte Viso as the backdrop to today’s stage. With a start and finish location the same as the famous stage in 1949. This stage is more considerate to the peloton with only the one significant climb. However, the punchy climbers will launch their attack on the steep pavement in Pinerolo and try and hold off the peloton for the final 3km. An exciting finish to see.

Day 3 – Friday 24th May: Who’s Lupo? – Get a Bloomin’ Move On and a mountain stage

The Giro d’Italia mascot is a Wolf, known as Lupo (the Italian word for Wolf). The English say “break-a-leg” to wish an actor luck, Italian’s say “In bocca al lupo”, translated “into the mouth of the wolf”. The penultimate climb today is translated the “plain of the Wolf”. Aptly named drawing our attention to the mascot, and possibly the significance of the final climb; the set location for the famous 1969 movie “The Italian Job”. Famous for Michael Caine’s one-liners, the closing bus crash scene and it’s theme song “Get a Bloomin’ Move On”. We expect favourites will do just that today.

We’ll travel to the second climb of today’s course to see the race. It’s up to you how far you’d like to climb up Pian del Lupo, similar to yesterday it is 9 km at 9%, with 14% pinches.

Giro d'Italia Trips 2019

After watching the Giro d’Italia race pass, we’ll group at a local bar and watch the closing moments on television before making our short transfer to our next hotel.

Our hotel for the next 2 nights is situated in the Aosta Valley, a long valley in the North-West region of Italy, connecting the highest peaks of Europe with the Po Plain. Our 3-star hotel with clean and modern rooms is close to a historic Roman bridge that is worth a look during our stay. This evening, you are free to have dinner at one of the nearby restaurants.

Stage 13: Pinerolo to Ceresole Reale *****, 188km
Until now the race favourites have been grabbing small amounts of advantage where they can. Today, the 3 big categorised climbs will be the first judgement of their preparation for the season. We’d expect the peloton to be quite reserved over the first climb before a selection takes shape on the second climb.

Day 4 – Saturday 25th May: Mont Blanc – Skyway and mountain stage finish

Our tourist option is an “out of this world” experience, or more accurately “top of this world”. After breakfast, we’ll travel up to the top of the valley, where a new skyway shuttles travellers up to Mont Blanc, stopping at Pointe Helbronner at an elevation of 3,462 m. For the more adventurous, you can take the aerial tramway across to Aiguille du Midi. Needless to say, they both have spectacular views across the Alps and a “step into the void” experience. This will be a memorable, full day expedition, so have a day off the bike.

We’ll still have a ride option today and as you can imagine it involves climbing. We will ride the final climb of today’s stage before the Giro d’Italia race comes through. We can then watch the finish in Courmayeur. If you’d like a little extra climb, there is a 12 km extension to Colle del Picollo San Bernardo that takes us to the French border.

After another memorable day at the Giro Italia, we’ll travel back to our hotel for dinner.

Stage 14: Saint-Vincent to Courmayeur *****, 131km
Giro’s shortest road stage unleashes a serious amount of vertical metres across its 5 categorised climbs. Stage 14 should be one of the highlight stages of this edition. Each ascent is long, steep and relentless.

Day 5 – Sunday 26th May: Race of Champions – Il Lombardia and watch the race

giro da italia 2019

After breakfast this morning we’ll transfer to our next hotel, from where we’ll start our rides. Both rides will intersect with the famous course of today’s Giro d’Italia stage and watch the race on the important climb to Colma di Sormano. If you’d like to challenge yourself on something more difficult, you can reach the summit on the Muro di Sormano. If you had any doubt, Muro means “wall”. The 2 km path averages 14 %, but the first 200 m is flat, so it’s closer to 16-17% average.

After seeing the race, we’ll descend back to our hotel, arriving in time to see the final moments on television. A classic finish on some of the most famous cycling roads in Italy. Tonight we’ll have dinner together at our 4-star hotel, a renovated castle.

Stage 15: Ivrea to Como, ****, 237km
From the shortest stage to the longest, the race travel across the Po Plain before reaching the scenic Como region, home of the Lombardy monument race. The final 80km of the route follows the classic course up Ghisallo and Colma di Sormano.

Day 6 – Monday 27th May:  Magnificent Lake – Lake Como, Belaggio and Cyclists Shrine

With the Giro d’Italia race taking a rest today and some big climbs ahead of us, we can enjoy a leisurely day on the bike before transferring to our next hotel. After a big breakfast we’ll ride to the shores of Lake Como and follow its shoreline to the spectacular village of Bellagio. Boutique shops, delicious “pasticeri” sweet biscuits, gelati and of course coffee, we’ll make a stop and wander through the stone pedestrian alleys.

We leave Bellagio and ascend another of Italy’s famous climbs to Madonna del Ghisallo, a small chapel which holds the shrine to cyclists. Only in Italy could anything like this be found! The Beata Vergine Maria Del Ghisallo was made the patron saint of Italian cyclists by Pope Pious XII in 1949 and her chapel is a shrine to cycling’s past and present greats. Within the chapel is the bike Fausto Coppi rode to victory in the 1949 Giro Italia and the machine used by Moser for the hour record in 1984. Also, in a separate building, there is a large modern cycling museum dedicated to the bikes and the people that have made the sport famous.

Our next three nights are spent in Bormio, close to the Swiss border, in a charming family-run hotel near the town centre. Due to its thermal baths, Bormio has been a popular town since the time when the Roman aristocracy travelled to Bormio in order to enjoy warm baths in the mountainous scenery. Bormio is centred around the medieval town, but for cyclists, it is a popular destination being close to the famous climb of Passo del Stelvio. Tonight, you are free to explore Bormio and have dinner in the village.

Day 7 – Tuesday 28th May: Cima Coppi – Queen Stage and Passo dello Stelvio

giro italia 2019 route

We’ll avoid getting cold sitting at the top of Gavia and ride Gavia tomorrow. Instead, we can watch the race come through Bormio later today. We’ll tick off from your bucket list, one of its biggest items, Passo Dello Stelvio. Riding Stelvio at this time of the year is special, as nearing the summit there will still be walls of snow on the side of the road.

We’ll leave the hotel early to give us plenty of time to complete our ride. Starting from Bormio, the Passo del Stelvio is 21.5km long to the top of the pass, which at 2,757m, is the highest paved road in the Eastern Alps with fabulous views across to Switzerland. The original road was built in 1820-25 by the Austrian Empire to connect the former Austrian province of Lombardia with the rest of Austria. It’s a very manageable climb, and even if you don’t go all the way to the top, reaching the long valley before the final push for the summit rewards those who go there. Spectacular views, a feeling of solitude and the sounds of marmots.

We’ll return to Bormio in time to watch the Giro d’Italia race come through and watch riders go up Mortirolo on television with a rewarding beverage in hand. Tonight we’ll have dinner at our hotel’s wonderful restaurant.

TODAY IN THE GIRO D’ITALIA RACE
Stage 16: Lovere to Ponte di Legno *****, 226km
There is only 5,700m of elevation gain during today’s Giro d’Italia stage. For those into Everesting, that is 65% of the task done – at race pace! This queen stage takes in two of the most famous Giro climbs, Passo Gavia followed by the mighty Mortirolo (although some have other names for it). A great stage to watch.

Day 8 – Wednesday 29th May: Cycle Bormio – Passo Gavia

The pros rode to the summit yesterday of the other famous climb near Bormio. Making it to Passo Gavia from Bormio is the easier of the two Gavia Pass ascents, measuring 25km and averaging 5% to 2,621m. The only really challenging section is around the 20km mark, where the gradients reach double digits before easing off for the last few kilometres of the climb.

2019 Giro Tours

Besides the views across the mountains and the picture perfect switchbacks, the two lakes “Nero” and “Bianco” are beautiful. Our alternative ride will take us up “Piccolo Stelvio”, it is a twisty climb (16 switchbacks) off the road heading to Livorno. If you are adventurous, you can ride around the turquoise waters of an alpine lake. Either way, we have a beautiful ride available for you today. You could also do both climbs today if you’re chasing vertical metres.

For those not riding today, there is the option today of spending the day visiting St Moritz, across the border in Switzerland. Getting there is the fun part, aboard one of the world’s great train journeys on the Bernina Express. Leaving from Tirano the train offers spectacular views from the panoramic cars all the way to St Moritz, where you can spend a couple of hours exploring before returning to Tirano late afternoon for the trip back to Bormio.

After our rides today, or having returned from Switzerland, we’ll catch up with the Giro d’Italia race and have dinner together at our hotel, you’d want to be first to the Tiramisu tonight.

Stage 17: Val di Sole to Anterselva ***, 180km
Today’s Giro d’Italia stage starts from the popular mountain biking area, Val di Sole where a round of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup is hosted each year. Today, riders will stay on bitumen and follow one of the main trade routes to the Austrian border. Fortunately, the Counts who once ruled the area will not be stopping the peloton to collect their taxes.

Day 9 – Thursday 30th May: Bucket List – Mortirolo

We depart from Bormio today. Like the pros, we’ll have gravity on our side, descending down the valley. You’ll barely need to pedal for the first 30km of today’s course. Our easier option can continue to Tirano and meet up with our transport. It might well be the fastest (and easiest) 45km you’ll ever do, a fun ride.

Our challenging option follows yesterday’s final climb and heads up the mighty Mortirolo. The Passo della Foppa, or the Mortirolo as it is better known, is considered to be the toughest mountain one can climb in Italy. Our ascent from Mazzo di Valtellina is 12.8 km at an average of 10.1%. Beware an average though as the middle 5 km of the climb maintains an incline of greater than 12%. Once at the top we’ll continue to Ponte di Legno and meet up with our transport.

This afternoon we’ll make our transfer into the Dolomites for the final mountain stages of this year’s Giro d’Italia. Our hotel for the next two nights is a bike-friendly hotel in the Fiemme Valley with many great climbs nearby.

From our hotel, we’ll ride in the Dolomites to today’s finish in San Martino di Castrozza. There are two routes for getting there. Our easier, direct option is going over Passo Rolle, a climb in tomorrow’s stage. Our harder challenge ride has over 2,000 m of climbing and reaches 3 summits for the day. Our first summit starts from Moena to San Pellegrino, 12 km at 6.3%. After a short descent, we start our next climb over Passo di Valles, longer at 20 km. The last 7 km of this climb is the most difficult of the day. Our final climb joins our easier ride part way along the climb, 6 km from the summit. A memorable ride through the scenic Dolomites.

After a warm shower and freshening up we’ll arrive at today’s Giro d’Italia finish with time to take in the atmosphere and watch the riders cross the line. Tonight we’ll head into the village for dinner, a free night to enjoy some friendly Trentino hospitality.

Stage 19: Treviso to San Martino di Castrozza ***, 151km
Riders return to the mountains today and there is just enough gradient to favour the climbers, but the noticeable absence of steep gradients may favour the powerful Tom Dumoulin, helping him overcome his second place podiums and rise to the top step. It’ll be a good finish to watch.

Day 11 – Saturday 1st June: Rite of the Cyclist – Monte Grappa and mountain finale

We’ll take the opportunity to see today’s Giro d’Italia stage start. We’ll arrive in time to see the team buses arrive and riders sign on. Giro stage starts are great to see, as riders are more relaxed and offer their time to ‘tifosi’ more freely. Locals gather at local cafes, sipping their espresso and discussing today’s articles in La Gazzetta dello Sport. As they set off for one of the queen stages of the giro, we’ll ride the slopes of Monte Grappa.

Cima Grappa rises from the plains to a height of 1775 meters. It was a World War 1 battleground and has great significance for the Italian people, particularly the “Alpini”. It is a wonderland for cyclists, offering nine paved routes to the summit, one of which is considered the third hardest climb in Italy. Fare il Grappa, to do Grappa, is the obligatory climb and right of passage of every local cyclist. The northern route is possibly an easier ascent, but the variable gradient and some downhill make you wonder when you’ll see the top.

From the top, there is a side road that takes you up to the war monument with great views across the Veneto plains. After reaching the summit, we’ll descend to Bassano del Grappa for the afternoon.

Our easier ride will head down the bikeway beside the Brenta river and visit a couple of Veneto villages before meeting the rest of the group in Bassano del Grappa. We may even indulge in the local drink, simply called Grappa. After the race has finished, we’ll travel to our final hotel, a 4-star resort in one of Italy’s oldest wine growing regions, near Verona.

Stage 20: Feltre and Croce d’Aune-Monte Avena *****, 193km
A final queen stage across the Dolomites, with over 5,000 m elevation gain. The route takes in climbs up Cima Campo, Passo Manghen and Passo Rolle, and a closing climb up Croce d’Aune-Monte Avena. The summit finish is nearly 15 km with gradients exceeding 10-12% at points.

Besides the wineries, there are peach orchards, olive groves and cypress trees leading to renaissance and baroque style villas. We’ll arrive back mid-morning, in time to shower and prepare ourselves for our visit to Verona.

We have the afternoon available to explore the sights of Verona and watch the final stage, and individual time-trial finishing in the famous Arena. This will be a special occasion. After the never-ending trophy has been awarded and the winner crowned, we’ll return to our hotel for a special farewell dinner, celebrating our trip to the 102nd Giro Italia.
