The Dolomites are an essential pilgrimage for cyclists ever since the Giro d’Italia’s first foray here in 1937. They have graced the Giro more than 40 times and famous Italian cyclists such as Bartali, Coppi and Alfredo Binda carved out their reputations here. The elegant names of the climbs – Campolongo, Falzarego, Valparola – roll off the tongue with a gentle rhythm and cadence that evokes the long, meandering roads that cross them.

This trip takes you on an intensive week of riding through the Dolomites and includes the chance to ride the roads of the Sella Ronda, one of the most beautiful cycling loops in the world.

You will be staying in Badia for the first part of the trip and then in Cortina d’Ampezzo. This gives you the opportunity to ride all the key climbs in the area.
