Bike Touring Italy

Bike Touring the Heart of the Dolomites

A Bike Tour in Italy's Italian Dolomite's is one of a cyclist most spectacular adventures.  During this biking trip I take you on a route that  offers many of the other climbs that most bike operates do not ride.  Each day is organized so that there are multiple options, each day is not a slug fest of pain to ride another ascent, but instead an enjoyable ride though one of the World's National Monuments.  Of course there are plenty of options for extra miles, that takes you on some of Italy's hardest climbs.

Riding the Classic Climbing of the Italian Dolomites

During the week we ride through the heart of the Dolomite's exploring many of the unknown passes that have been used for great races, for years.  We do ride a few of the most popular routes but this program concentrates on the passes and climbs other bike tour companies do not ride.  Enjoy great climbs, good food and wine, and fun company during a week of climbing and exploring the National Monument of the World.

Why Cycle the Dolomites

Italy's dramatic limestone rooftop, the Dolomite's, offers some of the best mountain roads to bike on, in Europe. The sunny Dolomite's are well developed, and the region's famous for it’s valleys and towns that come alive with après-ski fever each winter.  Lovers of the Alps may miss the lushness that comes with the unpredictable weather northern weather. But the bold limestone pillars of the Dolomite's, flecked with snow over green meadows under a blue sky, offer an exceptional mountain experience.

A hard-fought history has left this part of Italy bi-cultural and bilingual, the locals speak German first. Many wish they were still Austrian. In the Middle Ages the region faced north as part of the Holy Roman Empire. Later it was firmly in the Austrian Hapsburg realm. After Austria lost World War I, its South Tirol became Italy's Alto Adige. Mussolini did what he could to Italianate the region, including giving each town an Italian name. The government has wooed the German-speaking locals with economic breaks that has made this one of Italy's richest areas. Today, signs and literature in the autonomous province of Süd Tirol/Alto Adige are in both languages.

During the week we ride through the heart of the Dolomite's exploring many of the unknown passes that have been used for great races, for years.  We do ride a few of the most popular routes but this program concentrates on the passes and climbs other bike tour companies do not ride.  Enjoy great climbs, good food and wine, and fun company during a week of climbing and exploring the National Monument of the World.

The Dolomite's are featured each year in what has become known as the 'The World's Hardest Race, In the World's Most Beautiful Place', and once you set off on your rides you will understand why.  There are many extreme cycle challenges with the Dolomite's but there are plenty of well engineered roads that were built to ease travel on the mountain slopes.
