AREA
INFORMATION

The Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, provide a unique and spectacular backdrop to your cycling. There is no flat in the Dolomites, you are either pushing hard up the climbs or revelling in the thrilling descents. 

Our favourite climb is the Falzarego which offers stunning views across the rugged Dolomites. For descending, look no further than the awesome 20km freewheel from Arabba to the start of the Passo Giau.

Weather
INFORMATION

The summer can be beautifully warm but as you are in the mountains, the weather can be changeable. We suggest that you pack clothing for all weathers as the difference in weather can be stark from one week to the next.

We consider travel insurance to be essential. Accordingly, it is a condition of making a booking through us that you have suitable insurance cover for the booking you have made and any activities which you expect to take part in. Please note that sportives can often be classed as races by insurers and so you need to ensure you are covered to race. The insurance should also as a minimum cover cancellation, baggage loss, accidents and health issues while you are away. We also recommend that you take your policy details with you when you travel. Please ask our cycling experience team if you would like us to arrange travel insurance for you.
