Giro d'Italia 2020 | 21 stages, introducing the official route

While on television we are watching the Tour de France and in the coming days on Italian roads we will enjoy the Tirreno-Adriatico cycling challenge we analyzed the final route of the next Giro d'Italia that for the first time in history will be held in autumn.

It’s a very interesting edition of the Giro d'Italia because it reflects the Italian autumn scenario, where there is still good weather and pleasant temperatures, in which Italian cyclists use to train. 

This scenario was taken from the Italian television commercial that we consider very significant and exciting which represents the history of the Giro, Italian cycling in the autumn weather. 

Sometimes one of the most complicated things for people who desire enjoy the Giro d'Italia on stage is to understand where cyclists will pass.

Below we report the detail and a summary of the villages crossed by the stages of the Giro d'Italia 2020, places where our company provides a quality bike rental service with delivery and collection at customer accommodations. 

Every year Google maps sends us the data of our logistic movements, and on average to deliver bicycles to our customers in Italy we make many kilometers, as many as 3.5x the length of the equator

We are very happy with all this and we hope to welcome you in Italy on the occasion of this extraordinary tour of Italy.

Waiting the Giro!

What’s a great commercial of the Giro by the Italian television, for the first time in the autumn.
