Italy’s dramatic rocky rooftop, the Dolomites, offers some of the best cycling in Europe and definitely the most dramatic battles for the Giro d’Italia. The Dolomites consist of a chain of rock spires and famous valleys with drop dead gorgeous mountain passes at every turn. We’ll spend the first half of our tour riding this paradise enjoying both the thrill of the Tour and quiet days playing in the saddle. From the Dolomites, we move west into the Italian Alps where the legendary Passo Mortirolo and Passo Stelvio ominously sit. It’s here we’ll ride and watch the Queen’s stage of the Giro d’Italia and what will undoubtedly be a sufferfest for the pros. Finish the trip in the chic center of Milan for the ITT around the historic center finishing at the Piazza del Duomo. You’ll be riding in style, sleeping in comfort and supported by the amazing guides at Ride Strong Bike Tours.
Registration and group size will be limited to the first 12 people.
