10 year Anniversary Epic: 2 stages traversing Spain, France and Italy

Join us on a ride of historical proportions as we ride in the footsteps of Hannibal from Barcelona to Gavi. Cycling on some of Europe’s most iconic and picturesque bike touring routes through Spain, France, and Italy this epic journey takes on the most iconic leg of Hannibal’s journey. Divided into 2 stages the Hannibal tour takes in some of the finest cycling you could ever wish to find. Picture postcard views abound as we traverse some of the iconic climbs of the Grand Tours, roll through the vineyards of the Languedoc, Provence, and then over the Alps into Piedmont, Italy.

Experience total immersion in the landscape, history, and culture of the places we visit as we ride this inspirational iconic trail on the road less travelled. Discover from the saddle why Hannibal’s invasion of Rome in 218 BC was a major turning point in history. This was the clash of the ancient superpowers. If Hannibal had been victorious against Rome our world today would be completely different. The Western world wouldn’t have Rome at its origins, rather a Middle Eastern colony based in North Africa!

Extra loops are available for those wanting more daily riding and elevation.
