Gruppetto strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Giro d’Italia is best suited for riders averaging more than 100km per week  Our guides can also easily accommodate riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. The terrain is challenging, with steep climbs followed by long descents. You can ride as much or as little as you like. See Itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options and let us know what you'd like to do
