My buddy Jon Woodroof has just finished the Torino Nice Rally, a multi-day one-stage 700km ride across Italy. “The route includes around 485km of tarmac going up to a high point of 2750m and taking in two Grand Tour cols, also 240km of rocky gravel-based military stradas along the border often at an altitude of 2000m or more. The scenery of the Queyras and Mercantour national parks and the Ligurian and Maritime Alps will reward those prepared to ride long days and sleep out, seeing the sun rise and set each day.”
Check out his Instagram to follow the adventure! As an aside, my gravel/travel bike is taking shape in Treviso. So excited!
