Another question, does anyone know about road closures for the Giro? I know for Tour de France the roads are often closed to everyone who isn't accredited for several hours at a time, but at the Vuelta last year there were times when I was able to ride until the peleton was only a few minutes away, and then start again within about 5 minutes. Any idea what it is like at the Giro?
I'm riding the 2013 Giro d'Italia to raise funds for charity! Read all about it as well as my rides of the 2009 Tour de France and 2012 Vuelta at www.tourletour.com
