Legendary for a reason. For most, the mere mention of Italian Dolomites sets off fireworks of spectacular mountain scenery—and rightly so. There may be no more dramatic grouping of spires and rocky ridges jutting to the sky than that found in the Dolomites. For winter sports lovers, it’s pure paradise, with infinite options at every turn. For hikers and bikers, summer brings a wonderland of treasures, with trails and lanes crisscrossing remote ridgelines. Cyclists from around the world arrive each year to challenge themselves on passes made famous by greats going back to the founding of bike racing itself. And for all the glory claimed by this place, precious little of its boasts can be disputed.
A challenge worth taking. We take this week to challenge the Dolomites, pure and simple. Our skills will be tested on a combination of rough gravel paths and strenuous climbs, crossing national parks off-road and finding places that only trekkers usually enjoy. This tour requires accomplished bike handling skills (especially for steep, loose descents) and strong legs, but—OMG—the rewards are truly epic and oh so worth it.
We’ll cross mountains and climb passes, drop into impossibly beautiful valleys, and even leave our bikes behind to hike amongst some of the Dolomites’ highest peaks. And when we’re done, we’ll remember this place as we will few others, and the Dolomites will stay with us forever.
