Giro della Sicilia 2023

Edition 2023

In 2023 the Giro della Sicilia will bring all participants to know the enormous naturalistic, cultural and artistic heritage of the Madonie, a protected natural area and included in the UNESCO Global GeoParks network.

The cycle-sport formula provides an alternation of cycling moments where it is possible to pedal in total relaxation at a controlled speed, enjoying the landscapes that the Sicilian mountains offer, to moments of healthy competition where you can give your best during the timed sections.
