Giro cycling vacations

Hi,

Gathering advice on Giro d'Italia cycling vacations....

What I am looking for is the travel company that offers Giro vacations that

Emphasize:
Riding...looking for 50-85 miles riding each day
Race viewing ... viewing race stages


Not so interested in:
Accomodations
Fine dining

What company is best for this interest profile?

Thanks,

Mike

Can't promise you 50-85 miles everyday, but take a look at http://www.agile-compass.com/il_giro.html to see if it might suit you.

Michael,
Check out my 2008 Giro Dolomiti & Alpes Tour at: http://outfittertours.com/page.cfm?pageID=337
I still have openings. We see the key mountain top finishes and ride the toughest climbs in the Dolomites and further West like Gaiva, Mortorolo and Stelvio. With those climbs the distances are a bit shorter, but I can add miles every day, not to worry.
