This 'must-do' ride we will take the group to Siena and ride the finale of the Strade Bianche with finish at Plaza del Campo. We'll take time at this mythical spot for photos and of course a delicious Italian 'gelato'! Along the way we will ride over beautiful gravel strips, known from the Strade Bianche and the Eroica Nova. After the ride there is the possibility for a massage.

Pieve a Salti route

Recovery dayDay 4

Time to recover today with a coffee ride or a full rest day to give the legs a rest after some solid gravel days and the necessary altimeters. Cycling is on your own, for which several routes are available. In the afternoon there is a free program and you can do your own thing. A wine tasting, to the beautiful village of Montalcino where you can visit the Eroica shop or just relax with a book by the pool. It is also possible to book a massage. The choice is up to you! In the afternoon and evening we will hold individual talks to go over the "race plan" for Saturday.

Torrenieri route

Gravel dayDay 5

This day is dedicated to enjoyment par excellence. We ride through the Torrenieri wine region over an undulating landscape with the most beautiful gravel roads in the Buonconvento region. Local guide Alessandro cycles with us today and tells all the ins and outs of this beautiful area. During the aperitif we discuss tomorrow and Saturday when it is D-day!

Expo Village Siena

Recovery DayDay 6.

Today we will pick up the start ticket and participant package. It is also a perfect time to taste the atmosphere at the "Expo Village" and the start/finish in Siena. For those who want to loosen up their legs, there is the possibility to go to the start by bike, ride some relaxed meters and get everything ready for the big day tomorrow! For those who want a rest, there is the possibility of picking up the start tickets by car. Of course, we will also watch the pros this day. The rest of the day is all about resting and preparing everything for D-day!

Gran Fondo Strade Bianchi

D-DayDay 7

Today is D-Day! Perhaps one of the most beautiful and spectacular Gran Fondo you will ride in your lifetime; the Strade Bianche! A day you are not going to forget, just because of the breath-taking landscapes and unique atmosphere.
