This is the ultimate cycling challenge: Ride Every Kilometre of one of the Grand Tours on the same day... and the Giro d’Italia is typically the toughest! We'll be riding on exactly the same route as the race, every single kilometre, just a few hours ahead of the pros. That's over 3,300km, and 44,000+ metres of climbing, over 21 stages.

“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 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.

We're offering the opportunity for amateur cyclists to ride every kilometre, on every stage, of the Giro, on the same day as the race. We'll be riding some of the best cycle routes in Italy as the Giro winds its way from Emilia Romagna to Tuscany, the Alps, the Dolomites & arriving in Verona for the grande finale in the roman amphitheatre.

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 4:30 pm, 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, two groups with a ratio of 7 cyclists: 1 guide and a support vehicle. As an "Official Tour Operator", we will have our support vehicle with us the whole distance, all the way to the finish line each day. 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 2018 guests to be convinced!

If riding every kilometre of all 21 stages of the Giro d’Italia stages sounds a bit much then you can join for just 9 or 6 stages at the Giro week 1, Giro Week 2 or Giro Week 3.
