Day 1

LUCARELLI-CASTELLINA

FRIDAY, 12TH APRIL 2019
DISTANCE: 85KM ELEVATION: 1875M

With the introduction to Chianti out the way and a new best friend in your De Rosa Idol we set off to fry bigger fish. The Route Strava has become a huge thing for both amateur and professional cyclists all over the world and today we give you a chance to take on one of Strava’s most legendary segments, L’ora Del Chianti (the Chianti hour). We do intend to stop for a coffee in Greve in Chianti, which is around halfway, making it very hard to break any records. With 5 taxing climbs in 56km many people will choose to crawl back to the villa, but for those not satisfied, we have an extending loop which takes in another 2 killer climb.


LA PANCA

SATURDAY, 13TH APRIL 2019
DISTANCE: 30.6KM ELEVATION: 799M

Today’s ride is very much an introduction to the roads of Chianti and a chance to get you acquainted with your new De Rosa Idol. We will leave the villa and coast down a 2km descent before a short climb up towards the beautiful town of Panzano. Another quick descent from Panzano will start us on a 10km drag of 2% which will take us to Radda in Chianti, the starting point of the 2016 Giro D’Italia ITT. From here we follow the Giro TT around 20km back to the villa with the first 8km being a mange e beve (up and down) before a 10km descent to the beautiful town of San Donato in Poggio where we turn down towards the villa. This will be a little taste of what cycling with La Corsa in Chianti has to offer.

Day 2


CASTELNUOVO BARADENGA

SUNDAY, 14TH APRIL 2019
DISTANCE: 90KM ELEVATION: 1493M

As with most of the rides in this part of the world we are going to climb a lot of vertical meters, although this ride south, in the direction of Siena is as tame as it gets. Several gradual climbs will take us down towards one of the most beautiful areas of Chianti and will give many of you the first taste of the all famous Strade Bianche (gravel or white roads). A coffee stop in Castelnuovo Berardenga and then we loop back round in the direction of the villa. 90km in Chianti never felt so pleasant.
