Granfondo and Giro d'Italia Ride Opportunities
My friend Nicola from the Sport Hotel Veronello (also Garda Bike Hotel), near the shores of Lake Garda, reminded me that they have several ride opportunities they are offering.
April 18: Granfondo Città di Lazise, with the start only 3km from the hotel.
22 to 31 May: Giro d'Italia week; watch the 14th, 16th, and 18 stages; and, ride the TT, and final stage into Verona before the pros do. In the days in between ride in Valpolicella, along the lake to Malcesine, ride Peri-Fosse, and participate in the Granfondo Zen.
Two separate weeks are offered in which ex-pro Eros Poli is the special guide:
Septembr 27 to October 4: ride two granfondos that week, the Granfondo Prosecco and the Granfondo South Garda Bike.
October 4 to October 11: ride the Granfondo Italia
The hotel has De Rosa bikes which can be rented.
To request further information contact Nicola at the hotel.
