That’s what we think when we think of riding the roads and mountain passes in the Dolomites. A region of Italy known for its skiing and snow sports in the winter, the Dolomites has an amazing array of mountain passes for cycling in the spring and possibly one of the most beautiful regions on the planet.

In fact our 2016 tourists are in the region enjoying this cycling wonderland as we speak.

This region is an absolute favourite of ours and a regular on the route for the Giro d’Italia. With so many climbs in this region, everywhere you turn there is a road to the top. The Dolomites mountain range in the Northern Italian Alps with 18 peaks above 3,000 (9,800), and some of the world’s most beautiful mountain scenery including sheer rocky cliffs, vertical walls, long and narrow valleys, led to this being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. Snow capped mountain passes, exhilarating descents into lush valleys, dotted with small towns each with their unique old world charm. What more could you ask.
