Strade Bianche del Garda
Come Cycle with us on our Strade Bianche del Garda
In 2018 we took a group to participate in the first Granfondo Strade Bianche in Siena.
We fell in love with it.
Learning to pedal between tarmac and white roads, riding comfortable bikes that crackle beautifully as the wheels go over the gravel, we came home excited to explore our own white roads. And now we are able to take you there too.
You will have the opportunity to use our Pinarello Grevil, the much touted all terrain bike that our main partner has designed for this type of riding.
On our white roads, we ride without traffic, through vineyards, on paths adjacent to ancient walls, with the aroma of the land that changes with the seasons.
It’s a delight
It’s a delight when the white powder covers your shins, forming a line over your socks, and an ice-cold beer at the end of the ride goes down so easy.
White road riding in Autumn
You might also think about that perfect autumn weekend of white road riding, after a long season, just before you rest your legs for the winter.
