The Dolomites, also knows as the Pale Mountains due to their characteristic colour, make up one of the most renowned naturalistic, environmental and tourist areas of the Alps. Dotted with countless natural parks, they were declared UNESCO world heritage site in 2009. Home to Italy’s biggest ski district in winter, summer sees the Dolomites transform into one of the most extraordinary adventure parks a rider could ever imagine, an infinite series of turns set against breath-taking scenery.
4 days / 3 nights
Base for the event: Alleghe
Day 1, Friday 23 July: Noale – Alleghe
about 200 km
Meet up at Noale, welcome formalities and assigning of bikes. After a buffet lunch made up of typical local products, we’ll get to know the bikes with an initial leg that will take us to the structure that will be our base for the event. We’ll head north-west, travelling through Bassano del Grappa with its enchanting old bridge and climbing a section of the beautiful Brenta valley. We’ll continue to climb and skim the Asiago plateau, where we’ll take time out to ‘warm up’ the tyres on one of its most exciting bike routes, enjoying the thrill of the turns first through Val Franzela and then on the SP 76 toward Enego. Continuing on, we’ll finally enter an authentic alpine setting as we cross the Pale di San Martino Nature Park and climb Rolle, the first in a long series of passes.
Day 2, Saturday 24 July: Canazei – Passo Pordoi – Passo Sella
about 260 km
We’ll head out in the direction of Canazei, one of the capitals of the Dolomites, passing through the Serrai di Sottoguda canyonand then riding alongside Fedaia Lake, with the imposing profile of Marmolada looming over us. From here on, the day will be entirely dedicated to some of the spectacular passes on the Dolomite side of South Tyrol. Among the most famous, and deservedly so, are the Pordoi and the Sella, while others are hidden in the folds of the mountains, like the Würzjoch. We’ll experience some thrilling trajectories as we travel up and down between the peaks, enjoying breathtaking views around every corner and riding some enchanting valleys such as Val Gardena and Val Badia.
Day 3, Sunday 25 July: Falzarego – Cortina – Lago Misurina – Giau
about 220 km
Today brings a total change of scenery as we turn east and climb over the Falzarego Pass to arrive in Cortina d’Ampezzo. A real gem of the Venetian Alps, it would be wrong not to have a brief look around. Back in the saddle, we’ll tackle the curvesof the Tre Croci Pass, with Mount Cristallo looking down on us from above, before stopping to admire the gem that is Lake Misurina, nestled in its fairytale setting. From here to the three peaks of Lavaredo, we will continue to revel in the beauty of nature and sheer riding pleasure!! We’ll catch our breath climbing back up Val Pusteria before turning toward Val Cadore, where we will conquer yet another pass, the Giau.
Day 4, Monday 26 July: Alleghe – Feltre – Valdobbiadene – Noale
about 140 km
It’s time to leave the mountains behind, but not before crossing the National Park of the Belluno Dolomites, travelling the beautiful roads of the Agordinoarea as far as Feltre and the Piave valley. Before returning to ground level, we’ll make the most of every moment we have left as we weave through the delightful delightful hills of Valdobbiadene and its Prosecco vineyards.
Then it’s time to return the bikes, enjoy a buffet lunch of typical local products, and raise our glasses in a toast as we say goodbye!
