Reviews

Dolomites Weekender Cycling Holiday

The Dolomites is a special place in the cycling world. Ask anyone that's been and they will rave about the incredible scenery, warm hospitality and amazing climbs (and descents!). On this trip we spend 4 nights in Corvara. On the rides we take in the classic climbs of the region including the Passo Giau, Sella Ronda and some local routes off the beaten path. The routes for the main bunch are challenging but suitable for most regular riders, the front group routes are more suited to experienced climbers. Corvara is the perfect setting for post ride r&r. Our hotel has a spa and sports massage and the terrace out front is made for a couple of beers as the sun goes down over the mountains.
