This trip is designed for cyclists who want the maximum challenge, cyclists who love to climb or cyclists who just really want to experience the iconic mountain cycling routes in Italy’s Dolomites and Alps Mountain ranges. It is designed for true climbers, but also for any experienced cyclists who want to ride in the mountains, because each guest will have a choice of using the race oriented Pinarello Dogma or the performance assisting Pinarello Grevil eBike. It’s your choice.

You’ll ride famous stages featured in the Giro d’Italia, like the Stelvio and the Gavia in the Alps and the Sella Ronda and the Passa Fedaia in the Dolomites.

Eight epic rides and two recovery rides/rest days are included in this 10-day package (the trip can be shortened by excluding the last days in the Alps), providing you with endless spectacular views, lots of uphill challenge and downhill exhilaration, temperate weather, and an immersion into Italian mountain life.

If you love to climb, this is the trip for you! If all this climbing sounds great, but has you a little worried, don’t be. Our support van will be following all the way. Bring your vest and arm warmers to the van, and the driver will hand them back to you at the top for a warm descent; has all that climbing effort made you hungry?

The van will have food and beverages and will make strategic stops to help you refuel. Had enough climbing for the day? You can hop in the van and just enjoy the view for a while. And, if you love mountains, but need some help, our Pinarello Grevil pedal assist eBike will ensure that you have no problems going up.

This trip will fill you with awe and wonder at the amazing sites and scenery that will unfold before your eyes each day. And of course, we know you will work up a hearty appetite. You will be treated to the best local food to help you recover and give you a taste of local mountain cuisine. Additionally, our hotel selections offer a full array of amenities, like heated swimming pools, spas, comfortable beds and relaxation areas so that your time off the bike will be enjoyable and relaxing.
