Gran Fondo Giro d'Italia: May 17, 2015

The Giro d’Italia is preparing a present for cycling fans, to put under the Christmas tree, with registrations to enter the Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia opening in December.

The ride will be held on Sunday the 17th May.

The Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia will be held on the route of the Corsa Rosa’s Queen Stage – from Pinzolo to Aprica – and will run over the same climbs, the same descents, the same hairpins and the same distance that will test the pro riders days later, in what is one of the most keenly awaited days of the 2015 Giro d’Italia.

Gran Fondo Giro d’Italia will have two courses: a long route that will cover entirely the whole 175 km of the Pinzolo to Aprica stage, facing the climbs of Campo Carlo Magno, Passo del Tonale, Aprica, Mortirolo before the final climb towards Aprica; and a medium route, which will end after 102 km on the first passage in Aprica.

Tour Tuscany with "STAI A ROUTA" Cycling Tours


We received a note from Mauro Raspanti, one of the founders of "STAI A ROUTA", a new cycling tour company based in Firenze (Florence). "Stai a routa" in cycling parlance means "follow me".

"STAI A RUOTA" was born in 2013 from the idea of three friends, all Tuscany natives, united by their passion for cycling and love for their land of origin. STAI A RUOTA offers innovative cycling tours in one of the most beautiful areas of the world.

2015 L'Eroica News

In May, 2015, the L'Eroica organization will launch "Eroica Primavera" to promote the southern part of the permanent route which normally only the participants doing the 135 and 205km L'Eroica routes ride.

The organizing committee is also working on taking the event to Spain and California, possibly in 2015. The existing events in Japan and Great Britain will also be further developed.

New procedures to register for L’Eroica 2015 in Gaiole are being defined now and the committee has decided to ask participants to be involved in the process. You can help by providing your ideas and suggestions by taking a survey; those who participate in the survey will have advantages in registering for L’Eroica 2015. Click here to take the SURVEY.
