Lots of climbing but either shorter rides or an easier day mixed in. Challenging but suitable for most riders.
Mix of climbing & flatter days suitable for most riders.
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.
Plenty of tough sectors but suitable for most regular riders.
Rolling terrain with the occasional tougher section.
