And if you like that then read Gironimo by Tim Moore where he rides the course of the 1914 Giro on period equipment. Wood wheels, cork brake blocks.
A few details on the course: “The 1914 ‘Giro of records’ in numbers:
Longest ever average stage length: 396.25km
Smallest number of finishers: 8
Highest percentage of retirements: 90%
Longest individual stage by distance: 430km, Lucca–Rome
Longest individual stage by time: 19h 34’ 47”, Bari–L’Aquila”
Thanks op, watched this after seeing the post and it was excellent.
I was wondering how long that took them, I thought there’s no way they’d done that in the 23 days given the length of some of the rides and at the end they said 28 days. I thought 5/6 weeks. Great effort 👍🏻
