Currently we are working hard to design the most suitable route for you. As soon as we have confirmed locations, we will update this page immediately.
The final tracks and the GPS files will be available by beginning of June.
Day 1: Milan (IT) - Breschia (IT)
The welcome ceremony and a short tour briefing is the traditional opening of the GBI Europe tour. After that the participants start their tour with their teams. The first day is ideal for warming up. After we left the metropolian area of Milan, we will cycle on flat ground through the Po Valley. Later we will reach the mountain ranges of northern Italy, but only Track 2 will face some challenging climbs by detouring into the lombardic hills.
Day 2: Breschia (IT) - Verona (IT)
Today Lake Garda is on our tour schedule. Shortly after starting the day we will reach the southern bank of Lake Garda. As the day is not very challenging you might think of a plunge into the lake or a sightseeing stopp in one of the picturesque villages along the coast like Sirmione or Pesciera del Garda. The days destination Verona is not far away from the Lake and you could schedule a visit of the city with the famous Roman arena and the house of Shakespeares Romeo & Juliet before you arrive at the GBI Camp.
Day 3: Verona (IT) - Trento (IT)
From now we will cycle the next days primarily on the well paved Via Claudia Augusta cycling path, that will lead us from Verona through the Adige valley. The mountains beside us will rise constantly the more we head to the north. We will cycle the whole day with a moderate, but continuous climb to Trento.
Day 4: Trento (IT) - Brixen (IT)
We will stay on the familiar cycling path along the Adige until we reach Bozen. From here we turn into the valley of the river Eisack, that cuts deeply into the Dolomites. The ascent is now increasing noticeably and the route is curvy, but you will have some impressive views meanwhile.
Day 5: Brixen (IT) - Innsbruck (AT)
At least for Track 1 this is the queen's stage of the tour. We will immediately start to climb the mountains after leaving the camp, approx. 700 m of height must be conquered to the Brenner pass. In Sterzing there is a last chance to refresh yourself before you tackle the last part of the climb. After the Brenner there is a very long descent down to the Inn valley and to our destination Innsbruck.
Day 6: Innsbruck (AT) - Bad Aibling (D)
We will follow the river Inn downstream on that day. To our left and right the Alps rise high while we cycle on the Inn cycling path, always close to the river. Behind Kufstein we cross the border to Germany and head to our destination in Bad Aibling.
Day 7: Bad Aibling (D) - Munich (D)
The last day will be very relaxing compared to the the previous days. There are only very few hills on our way. We will cycle through the beautiful bavarian countryside. There is always an opportunity for a photo stopp or a typical bavarian Brotzeit (snack) in one of the lovely beergardens along the route. The final group cycling for the last couple of kilometers to Munich is always a highlight of the last stage. In Munich we will celebrate a week of challenges and fun, new friends and exciting memories at the traditional closing event. Now the time is coming to say farewell to your team mates before you go back home with a smile.
