Even though the trip is not hosted, we will provide race briefings and guided rides at no extra cost for those that want to join.

How's the Weather? in Dolomites

The SummerJune to August
The summer is usually warm and you're likely to experience good weather with high temperatures. However, the weather can be quite changeable in the mountains so please make sure that you come prepared with both warm and cold weather gear.

Area InformationFor Dolomites

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.
