You were able to see how the riders of the Men’s and Women’s cycling elite handled the white roads yesterday. Today it’s your turn. Ride either the 139 km route with 31 kilometres of gravel roads or 86 kilometres with 21 kilometres of gravel. The race largely shares the course with the Women Élite event. The route is twisty and undulating, with no lengthy climbs, but with punchy hills, especially on the unpaved parts. Private feed stop on the course and we’ll assist with packing bikes after the race. Dinner at the hotel.

More About the Event

Strade Bianche

A one day classic born from a sportive. The Strade Bianche has a unique history, starting in the late 90s when a group of local riders founded l’Eroica, a ride to celebrate the glory days of cycling over Tuscany’s famous white gravel roads. This became so popular that the professionals wanted a go and so the Strade Bianche was born. This is now firmly established as one of the best races of the calendar and makes for an amazing cycling weekend. The Pro races for Elite men and women are on Saturday and the Gran Fondo is on Sunday.
