Some beautiful things past participants have to say about the Giro Bello Ride and event.

“Our team goes to multiple events every year and it’s things like these (presorting and boxing their 54 shirts and swags) that make Giro Bello our favorite one by far. It’s the best organized ride and the most fun that we go to. Kudos to you and your team :)!”
~ Shriram Vijayakumar, Team Asha Coordinator

“One of the best bike tour rides in the Bay Area…please keep the event going for the years to come!”
~ Chito Agsalud, San Francisco, 4 time Giro Bello rider

“I first rode in 2016 and just fell in love with the area, support and how well the whole thing was run. I tell everyone I ride with they have to enter. Your ride is the only one that automatically goes on my event calendar.”
~ Vincent Castellana, Newbury Park

“I would have to say the route was the most spectacular I have ever ridden, the biggest draw for me. I am very fortunate that I didn’t need any assistance, medical or mechanical, but I saw plenty of Velo medics and SAG vehicles and I felt very secure. My daughter got a minor adjustment on her bike after her chain fell off and the problem was solved. The Giro Bello was expertly organized!  The route, the food, the support, it was all great. I will be back next year.”
~ Susan Comstock, 3 time Giro Bello rider

“I’ve been riding for 10 years now and have enjoyed many organized tours throughout northern California.  I have a few favorites that I won’t miss for anything!  Last year, 3 of my girlfriends and I decided to try the Giro Bello- new to all of us- what a fabulous ride!  Giro Bello got bumped up to my 1st Place Favorite!  The terrain and route, the communication, the rest stops, the support and organization, and even the food!  Utterly FABULOUS!  I signed up this year on the day registration opened!”
~ Alisa Johnsen, Chico

“Giro Bello is my favorite ride of the year! Well-supported, extremely scenic route; great festivities and food at the end of the ride. All topped off by a good quality, stylish cotton tee to take home as a souvenir! This is the ride of the summer.”
~ Alex Kamages, cycling enthusiast

“I have ridden over 22 different group rides in the 16 years since starting the Bodacious Biking Babes team 16 years ago. Honestly, your well organized ride is one of the top 3 rides I have ridden in 16 years! Ride on.”
~ Vicki Summers, Founder, Bodacious Biking Babes
