Sella Ronde
is rightly considered to be one of the finest cycle rides anywhere in the world. Legendary climbs, flowing descents and breathtakingly scenery. Sella Ronde has it all and more. A day that will live long in the memory.
We celebrate the achievement of riding Sella Ronde with a giro pizza fiesta with local beer produced in Val di Fass.

Saturday 28th May

Ride 70km | 2300m elevation
Immerse yourselves in the Giro d’Italia and feel the passion it has been creating in it’s 105 year old history. Leaving the hotel, after the customary excellent breakfast, we head North and on to the parcours of the penultimate Giro d’Italia stage.
The ride today will be lined with all things pink, children no doubt on the roadside awaiting the pro riders and tifosi’s fuelling themselves with homemade wine. The smell of BBQ’s a treat for the nostrils as you ride to the stage finish line.
On arrival at the summit of Passo Fedaia (quite a punchy climb!) you will have the opportunity to ride under the Finish Line Banner (stop for obligatory photos) as well as experience stepping foot on the podium. VIP hospitality awaits, as does unlimited prosecco and some healthy food options. Dinner in the evening will be enjoyed in a mountain hut before transfers back to the hotel.

VIP hospitality in the shadows of the arena. Witness the final battle for the pink jersey in the final stage time trial promising to bring a dramatic conclusion to this years race.

What our clients say

  • "A very thorough, professional and personal service. I was keen to analyse my bike position after breaking my hip. The custom footbeds and alterations to my position feel really good, just wish I’d come sooner! Many thanks"


    Endurance MTB rider

  • "Thanks very much Phil. Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects! Cheers, Ian "

    Ian T.

    Time-Triallist (70+)

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."


    Self-confessed MAMIL

  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

    Ed H

    London Dynamo Rider

  • "I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."
