Product description

The greatest 52 European cycling challenges, in association with Garmin. The most challenging cycle routes in Europe based on the best cyclosportive events - the most famous single-day professional races, which are known in cycling as The Classics, and on stages of the Grand Tours; the Tour de France, Tour of Italy and Tour of Spain. These are not just pretty rides in the country - they are serious challenges that require training and preparation, but are all accessible and are achieved by many thousands of ordinary cyclists every year. Some of the routes are based on well-established cyclosportive events, which are the big objective of many thousands of recreational and keen cyclists. Classic Cycling Race Routes allows cyclists to do the routes at any time, and encourages them to take part in the events. For the classic races which don't have a dedicated cyclosportive route, the author has designed a route to reflect the demands and history of these races.
