A smooth ride in the Italian sun! A remarkable number of intrepid cyclists successfully traced the wheel tracks across the Tuscany countryside this year. There were 258 riders departing at the Adriatic coast sunrise, and over 40 of these were existing ‘Sun Chasers’ travelling over from the UK shores to further seek out the Italian sunshine, scenery and famous hospitality! It proved to be a well-prepared and dedicated community on two wheels across the longest day – this led to an unprecedentedly successful ride, with almost every rider achieving the challenge of reaching the west coast before the sun set into the Tirrenean sea. Everyone was able to celebrate together with a well earned beer on the beach!
258 starters, 258 finishers before sunset, many having completing all 4 major climbs along the route… Congratulations to all you successful cyclists for Chasing the Sun 2022 and thank you to our organisational partners Turbolento for hosting such a fun event this year!
