Not as long nor as hard as the true 2024 Giro d'Italia and we won't get the crowds and the sag and the cycling press.

The route traces the outline of the Italian Peninsula on the roads of Baltimore County. We start from Brindisi riding up the Adriatic to Veneto, cross the top of Lombardia and then head south to Calabria. Two snack stops. 4100 Ft.
 
Download is only Anticyclonic (Clockwise) direction.  Generally the AntiCyclonic direction (clockwise) seems easier even with a start up Ivy Hill.  Ivy Hill starts should include a warning to 'Not Drop Chain or Water Bottles' at bottom of Ivy Hill second climb!!!

We will do the AntiCyclonic direction for the ride on Sunday.  AntiCyclonic garmin Course at http://www.baltobikeclub.org/images/agorapro/attachments/69/Giro-d-Italia-A-course.zip
