There are many beautiful places to go for a cycling tour, but you’d have to pick one only, I highly recommend you the Dolomites.
The scenery is simply stunning, with open valleys surrounded by rocky mountain peaks. A snake of tarmac to ride your bike on, always well maintained for the annual cycling event, the Maratona dles Dolomites. We stay in Corvara Alta Badia, main centre of the event with easy access to all the surrounding roads to cycle on.
There are many mountain passes to choose from, going from a 3/4% gradient, up to 15% in places, perfect terrain to test your fitness and skills level.
Our group is organised by La Fuga Travel cycling tour company, stays in the area for the whole week leading up to the Maratona event, to get used to the altitude, to familiarise with the roads and to get ready for the big cycling day ahead.
A loop around the Passo Duran and the Forcella Staulanza passing through the beautiful Valzoldana.
Thank you for passing by and reading this post, I hope it might help you consider picking up cycling, if you’re not a cyclist yet, and to come explore this beautiful part of Italy.
