Gruppetto Explained!

Gruppetto Cycling Tours was formed from friendship, a real passion for cycling, a love of food and wine & the desire to share some of the worlds best cycling... The name Gruppetto seemed apt for a bunch of guys like us.

The Gruppetto, in cycling terminology, is the name given to the group of cyclists in a road cycling race who form a large group behind the peloton.

"Due to the common interest in survival, the mood in the Gruppetto has a greater sense of camaraderie than in the main peloton. Riders often assist one another with food and drinks despite riding for separate teams. It is sometimes referred to as "the laughing group".
