Riders in Gran Fondo Strade Bianche

Italy has become a hub for gravel cycling enthusiasts with its beautiful landscapes, rich history, and excellent infrastructure. With this backdrop, Strambecco rates the Best Gravel Gran Fondo’s Italy 2024.  The country has a long cycling tradition.  Gravel cycling has been present in Italy for many years, but it was not until recently that it gained mainstream popularity. In the early 2000s, a group of cyclists in Tuscany began to explore the region’s unpaved roads and paths, and they found that they were perfect for adventure cycling. This group started organizing events and races, soon becoming popular among Italian cyclists.

In 2014, the Strade Bianche, a one-day race that includes a significant portion of gravel roads, was added to the UCI World Tour calendar, further popularizing gravel cycling in Italy. The race has since become a significant event in the Italian cycling calendar, attracting top professional riders worldwide.

Today, gravel cycling is a rapidly growing discipline in Italy. The country’s stunning landscapes, excellent infrastructure, and cycling culture make it an ideal destination for adventure cyclists. From the hills of Tuscany to the Dolomite Mountains, Italy offers a wide range of terrain and routes perfect for gravel cycling.  One of the most popular areas for gravel cycling in Italy is Tuscany. The region is known for its rolling hills, vineyards, and picturesque towns, and it has an extensive network of unpaved roads perfect for adventure cycling. Some of the best routes in Tuscany include the Strade Bianche, which covers 184 km of gravel roads, and the L’Eroica, a vintage-style ride that covers 209 km of unpaved roads.

Another popular destination for gravel cycling in Italy is the Dolomite Mountains. The region offers stunning mountain scenery, challenging climbs, and a range of unpaved roads. Other popular destinations for gravel cycling in Italy include the Apennine Mountains, the Veneto region, and the Emilia-Romagna region.
