Trans Dolomites Day 4

Thomson Tales

Trans-Challenges Transformed

​Our signature series of week-long cycling trips have been completely overhauled for 2021.

Trans-Challenges Transformed

We've gone to great lengths to design the most inspiring routes across the world’s most beautiful cycling regions.

What is a Trans-Challenge?

Trans-Challenges are at the very core of what we do. Week-long cycling trips that take the high road across mountain chains and countries. From the Dolomites, Alps and Pyrenees to the epic mountains of Colombia, we can promise you the most memorable routes across the greatest cycling regions.

New for 2021 we now have two categories of trip.
Choose between Trans-Challenge and Epic Trans-Challenge.


With an average of 73km and 1,675m a day the Trans-Challenge packs a punch with big mountains and incredible scenery. All eight of these breathtaking trips are completely new, with a new destination to Thomson in Provence.

Trans Dolomites


For the mountain goats we have the Epic-Trans Challenges, which average 112km and 2,650m — a rewarding challenge for climbers who like to push themselves. Our core favourites of Alps, Dolomites and Pyrenees have been redesigned to be entirely new trips for this year.
