Tour of the Dolomites Cycling Holiday

Join us for a classic 7 day ride from Cortina to Bormio taking in the highlights of the Dolomites & the Italian Alps. Each day contains a world famous climb and some amazing local routes. With group sizes between 8-14, this is a small & social week - we ride all together on the flats and climb at our own pace, regrouping at the summits normally at a feed stop or coffee & cake. The week begins with a punchy warm up loop from Cortina taking in the Tre Cime. We then ride to Corvara taking in the climbs of the Sella Ronda as well as the classic Passo Giau & Fedaia. We end the week in Bormio taking in the Stelvio, Mortirolo & Gavia.
