21 STAGES OF MAGIC ROADS STARTING MAY 9TH 2020

The Cycling Podcast is award-winning and globally respected, it is the only podcast to provide daily, on-the-ground coverage of all three of professional cycling’s Grand Tours.

RGT and the Cycling Podcast, along with their key partners Iwoca and Veloviewer have come together to present “Our Giro”; a free 21 day Italian adventure. 

“Our Giro” is the fourth, or rather the first Grand Tour in a season when some fans had been glumly contemplating life without their favorite sport.

Having for years reported on “La Corsa Rosa” on the ground – from the swooping valleys and towering peaks of the Alps and Dolomites – now The Cycling Podcast’s three hosts have turned race directors: 

Parallel to three weeks of acoustic love letters celebrating cycling’s most romantic race, from May 9 to May 31, we invite you to ride the roads of Our Giro, some of them famous, some undiscovered and all spectacular. 

From the Gavia to the Agnello, the Fedaia to Mount Etna – this is every cyclist’s chance to test themselves in the sport’s most captivating arena, the crucible of a three-week tour.
