Ride Notes

The Dolomites is 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 2 nights in Cortina & 2 nights in Corvara. Over five days we take in the classic climbs of the region including the Passo Giau and some local routes off the beaten path.The long weekend is set to the backdrop of some of the best scenery in Europe, imagine the Sound of Music mixed with stunning rock formations. The local Ladin culture (they speak their own language in these valleys) is a mix of Italian and Austrian with some great mountain food. An unmissable 4 night cycling break!

Real Rider Reviews
