Jessica’s Pink & Yellow Ride Month

In light of Giro Rosa commencing today, Tour de France commencing July 2, and wishing I was a pro cyclist, I’m going to at least ride every day starting today, July 1 to July 24. 

GIRO ROSA

This is considered the most important stage race for the Women’s WorldTour. The women race 9 stages with the prologue starting today.

The Stages – roughly 532 miles total

Prologue: 1.24 miles – July 1
Gaiarine

Stage 1: 64.6 miles – July 2
Gaiarine – San Fior

Stage 2: 69 miles – July 3
Tarcento – Montenars

Stage 3: 74.5 miles – July 4
Montagnana – Lendinara

Stage 4: 61 miles – July 5
Costa Volpino – Lovere

Stage 5: 48 miles – July 6
Grosio – Tirano

Stage 6: 73.7 miles – July 7
Andora – Alassio/Madonna della Guardia

Stage 7: 13.6 miles – July 8
Albisola Superiore – Varazze

Stage 8: 61.76 miles – July 9
Rescaldina – Legnano

Stage 9: 65 miles– July 10
Verbania – Verbania

The women cyclists in Giro Rosa will cover roughly 532 miles total, which averages to 59 miles a day. The male cyclists in Tour de France will be covering 3,519 KM which is 2186 miles, averaging to 104 miles every day. Because I have a full time job, the best I can promise is riding every day the racers do. 

It’s good to have goals and who knows what will come from it. 

An average of 104 miles every day for 22 days would be extremely difficult. Mind you, they get two breaks during the event, but still, one day is 147 miles. I have yet to ride that total in a day. It’s a goal of mine to do a Double Century, but as I am learning, that will come with time. 

There’s a lot of information on the Giro Rosa here and I’ll continue to update this page with each ride I accomplish.
