Cycling The Classic Climbs Of The Giro d'Italia

Bike Touring the Dolomites

Bike Tour Italy's Dolomites, one of cycling most spectacular adventures.  As you start your custom vacation plan and begin to  review where to ride and how to outline your day, consider this route plan we have used for several years as a good starting point.

During this Italy Bike Tour I set up a program to take you on a route that lets you challenge yourself on the TOP Climbs in Italian Cycling History riding in the Dolomites and Italian Alps. Each day's route plan is organized to be enjoyable rides trough one of the World's UNESCO Monuments, with plenty of options to ride extra miles. Each base ride is set with options to extend the day based on how you feel and how quickly you can recover from the prior day's route.
