Komoot and the Giro d'Italia enter their second year!
Last year we reported on the somewhat surprising cooperation between the route planning platform and the Giro d'Italia. Italy is la dolce vita and amore infinito! The holiday destination and mecca of cycling for so many of us! The collections and routes on komoot now make it much easier for us to explore the land of the Giro ourselves (and at a leisurely pace)!
Komoot is now the "Official Route Planner" of the Giro d'Italia for the second year in a row. To mark the occasion, the outdoor platform is making two specially compiled route collections available to its 30 million users worldwide. Cycling fans will not only find the routes of the official stages to save and follow themselves, but also a collection of selected cycle tourism routes from all host regions as a source of inspiration for their own tours. This way they can fully immerse themselves in the spirit of the race and discover the real Italy.
Discover the stages and regions of the Giro d'Italia with 25 komoot routes
In 2023, the start of the race, the "Grande Partenza", will return to Italy. The race starts on 6 May in Costa dei Trabocchi and finishes on 28 May in Rome. On their way to the finish, the participants of the 106th edition of the race cross 17 of Italy's 21 regions. In the process, they will cover 3,500 kilometres and overcome more than 51,000 metres of altitude.
But the Giro is more than just a race. It also impressively shows how closely cycling and culture are linked in Italy. The route leads through the most diverse landscapes, which are famous for their special wines, traditional cuisine and historical sights. After all, in which country can you get a better pizza? Or where can you still get an espresso for one euro?
From the imposing peaks of the Three Peaks to the rugged beauty of the Amalfi Coast and the distinctive castles of the Valle d'Aosta: the cycling tourism routes specially compiled by the RCS, the organiser of the Giro d'Italia, offer cycling fans inspiration for their next adventures and unique opportunities to discover the most beautiful places in Italy.
All tours can be downloaded for offline navigation on smartphones or synchronised with GPS devices. Users can edit the routes and change the starting point and destination as desired.
All 21 stages of the Giro d'Italia always in view
Exclusively on komoot, the Giro d'Italia provides a collection of the 21 stages in its profile, offering cycling fans a unique opportunity to follow every detail of the race. With komoot's intuitive features, users can interactively explore every single metre of the roads where the riders fight for the top positions: from the thrilling sprint finishes to the legendary climbs that decide who gets to wear the overall winner's pink jersey, the "Maglia Rosa".
All stages can be downloaded as individual tours for offline navigation on the smartphone or synchronised with GPS devices. This way, the most passionate fans of the race can retrace the spectacular route in the footsteps of the professional peloton themselves or adapt the official stages to their own tastes and plan their own Giro d'Italia.
Our collaboration with the Giro d'Italia clearly shows that komoot is the leading digital platform for inspiring cycling content. We are proud to partner with the RCS to present their exclusive cycling routes and the original routes of the Giro stages. This will give fans the unique opportunity to experience every metre of the roads that will make this year's Giro unforgettable.
