This trip promises to be an amazing experience; there aren’t too many places in the world where you can ride gravel among castles such as Castello di Brolio, vineyards, gorgeous rolling hills, and more. There’s a reason why the famous Strada Bianche professional cycling race traverses these roads. In fact Trek Travel will be offering a travel experience trip to catch that race up close and personal for 2024.
