The Event

Sicily Divide was launched in 2020 as a bikepacking route across Sicily. The first edition of the bikepacking event will take place in April 2023. Whether you choose the unsupported adventure or the supported ride, enjoy riding with like-minded folk at your own pace.

Join the ride!

The Route

Sicily Divide runs on public paved and unpaved roads from the salt pans of Trapani in the west to the black lava roads in Catania in the east. With a solid mix of terrain to explore and challenge yourself, the 2023 route will be even more spectacular!

  • 450 km
  • 8500 m elevation gain
  • 48 towns
  • coast to coast


Unsupported adventure: the Sicily Divide is a self-supported bikepacking event split over several days with no time limit. You’ll receive detailed route information, but you’ll need to take care of the logistics.  Upon arrival in Catania, you’ll find shower facilities, your completion certificate and a place to chill out after the ride (up until 4 May 2023).

If you choose the supported option by purchasing the Silver or Gold package, you’ll take advantage of a proper tour organisation with bag transfers, pre-booked accommodation and 24/7 assistance. 

Sicily At Its Best

Explore Sicily off the beaten path, meet friendly locals and enjoy authentic small town atmosphere with amazing food. Expect tough climbs and wild landscapes, ancient cities and ghost towns. If this is your first time in Sicily, it won’t be the last!
