Toscana Riviera Tour
Thursday 16th May
We will pick you up from Rome airport at 10:30am and head to the east coast to a town called Pescara where we will settle into our accom for the night. A short ride to roll the legs out along the flat beach road and then a catch up with some Giro highlights on tv will be on the cards.
Friday 17th May
Day 2 we will start with a ride straight from the hotel, a 80-90km ride to a climb mid-way through todays Giro stage. It will give us a glimpse at the riders for the first time, we will watch the riders race through todays main KOM climb. We will then head to our accom in Perugia Umbria, a beautiful castle for two nights. This place is a real gem and arguably the best food all trip.
Saturday 18th May
We will drive out to the coast for a 100km coastal ride including the Giro stage and a nice roll along the route before returning to Perugia. then to our accom for a nice dinner and a few drinks. In the afternoon we have some free time, so maybe we can head to old part of town for some local sights.
Sunday 19th May
We bid farewell to the Castle and head to San Marino. Today we will tap along the coast and ride todays Time Trial stage from Rimini to San Marino, it will be a 60km roll. We will then get settled on the side of the road with food and drinks to watch the rides battle the "race of truth". This is always a highlight of any tour and we will also get to see the stage start as we roll through.
Monday 20th May
Its a rest day for the Pro's and time for us to head to San Gimingiano. This Tuscan city is one of our favourites and you will find out why. A 60km roll through Tuscany’s rolling hills is on the menu before finding a spot to overlook this beautiful countryside.
Tuesday 21st May
Today we head to the West coast and roll up towards Cinque Terra enjoying a nice 70-80km roll along the coast. We can spend a few hours looking around Cinque Terra before heading to another amazing spot - Santa Margherita.
