Dolomites & Prosecco Rd Cycling Tour
Inspirational landscapes to challenge the body and mind
Test yourself in the heart of the Dolomites where the majestic rugged peaks of spectacular shape and colour provide the perfect backdrop for the challenging ascents and superb descents of climbs made famous by the Giro d’Italia, and which we’ll conquer over five days.
Taking on the legendary passes of Sella, Pordoi, Campolongo, Gardena, Santa Lucia, Giau, Falzarego and Valparola, and soaking up the incredible scenery and vista that are in every direction you ride.
From the inspirational landscapes of the Dolomites, we’ll then venture into the soft rolling hills of Prosecco Rd with its seemingly endless vineyards and Summer scents and colours rewarding you at every turn, before culminating in the final challenge of Monte Grappa; the mountain that rises out of the Veneto plains, and with its beauty and magnitude, engulfing you on your journey to the top. It’s perfect way to end an incredible week of climbing, testing you both physically and mentally.
Expect challenging days on the bike during this part of our Dolomites cycling tour, surrounded by warm Summer mountain air and scenery that feasts the eyes and heart in equal measure, followed by a food, wine and cultural experience that takes in the best of the Veneto’s varied landscapes, produce and cuisine, and its magnificent wines.
Join us for the challenge of a lifetime.

Nancy personally hosts non-riding guests each day with a select range of activities to suit the group.

From the kitchens and dining rooms of locals with spectacular views to the chic style of alpine resort osterias and restaurants, you’ll experience all that the Dolomites has to offer.
We’ll then live amongst the vines in the Prosecco hills, and enjoy local produce and dishes that follow the rhythm of nature in this most fertile land, together with the distinctive character of the Veneto’s wines from Prosecco to Soave to Valpolicella and Amarone. This is a region of delightful, yet varied cuisine and we’ll have you experiencing it all.
THE RIDE ROUTES WERE SCENIC & CHALLENGING
Thank you for a wonderful locally focused adventure. The accommodation was spectacular, the hospitality was awesome, the dining experiences were exquisite and the bike routes, as always were scenic and challenging. Thank you both so much.
I ASSURE ALL NON-RIDERS YOU CAN GO ON A BIKE HOLIDAY & HAVE A FANTASTIC TIME
I want to reassure all non-riding partners, you can go on a bike-riding holiday and have a fantastic time. I felt part of the group, whether I was travelling in the support van enjoying the fantastic scenery and being amazed at the climbs the riders were achieving, or enjoying the non-rider activities such as treks in the countryside with Nancy.
I WOULD LOVE TO DO IT AGAIN
Awesome riding and overall, a most enjoyable and fun experience that I would love to do again.
