Giro d'Italia 2018 - Ride Every Kilometre

This is the ultimate cycling challenge: ride every kilometre of one of the Grand Tours ... and the Giro d’Italia is typically the toughest! We'll be riding the exact same route as the race, just a few hours ahead of the pros.

8 Days

“There is nothing quite like riding on the full route of the Giro d'Italia, with thousands of supporters on the road cheering us on, and with the peloton only an hour or two behind us.” Keith Tuffley, Founder of Grand Tours Project and the mind behind the "Ride Every Kilometre" concept.

You can select to ride week 1, 2 or 3, each of which has 6 stages. (You may also wish to cycle the first 3 stages in Israel - see our “Grande Partenza” tour). We'll be riding some of the best cycle routes in Italy as the Giro winds its way up from Sicily along the full length of Italy to the Alps and Dolomites, and then with a (rumoured) finish in Rome, an appropriate selection given the historic connection to Jerusalem where the Giro starts.

You don’t need to be an elite athlete, but you must be fit and strong, and be ready for back-to-back long days in the saddle. We will start early and sometimes not finish till 4:30pm, just one hour ahead of the race leaders. However, we will always ensure we have enough time on the route each day for coffee, lunch and photo stops.

There are very limited spaces on this tour, with a ratio of 7 cyclists : 1 guide. As an "Official Tour Operator", we will have our support vehicle with us the whole distance, all the way to the finish line. Riding on the race course just a few hours before the pros makes this an unforgettable experience. Check out this story from one of our 2016 guests to be convinced!

If riding every kilometre of the Giro d’Italia stages sounds a bit much then check out our "Giro Experience" tour. The Giro d'Italia course will be announced in November 2017, but in the meantime contact us to register your interest.
