 ghisallo2017 DOLOMITES IN SUMMER (Italy)


The Dolomites typically play host to what are the most dramatic and decisive mountain stages during the Giro d´Italia professional road race. The jagged rocky peaks and large alpine valleys simply provide breathtaking views that last a lifetime!

This Dolomites in Summer tour was born after suffering first-hand the often cold May conditions in the high Dolomites and Stelvio National Parks. Frustrating Giro stage cancellations due to snow on the peaks and unpleasant descending experiences meant the need to create a summer tour for cycling these majestical mountains with the sun shining on the back instead!

If you are keen to challenge yourself on some of Europe´s biggest climbs (Monte Grappa, Sella Ronda, Giau, Stelvio, Gavia & Ghisallo) in a relaxed setting then this will be the tour for you. Cycling through the pre-Dolomites is the perfect warm-up before arriving to the Sella Massif! The adjacent Stelvio National Park, home to the Stelvio and Gavia Passes, has also played centre stage to many Giro battles plus challenging and rewarding experiences for our guests.

Some time on elegant Lake Como is always a great way to celebrate your achievements!

2017 L´EROICA & TUSCANY (Italy)


L´Eroica is a vintage Gran Fondo ride which is held in the Chianti region (Tuscany, Italy) on the first Sunday of every October. This is a truly traditonal and unique cycling event. To get you in the spirit of the event you will even ride a vintage pre-1985 steel road bike! The ride includes many kilometres on the famous strada bianca which are the white gravel roads of Tuscany.
The experience is truly rewarding – cycle from dawn to dusk, from a tankful of energy to those last final drops, from exhilaration to fatigue ...

We have designed a memorable tour following the landscapes and most picturesque towns of Tuscany: medieval Siena and the smaller villages of Montalcino, Montepulciano and Gaiole, Greve and Radda in Chianti. You will immerse yourself in all things Tuscany including its diverse districts and traditions, superb food and fine wine: Viva la Toscana!


Why not join us for what will be a step back in time to take in the joys of yesteryear cycling!


L´Eroica and the Strada Bianca are Italy´s version of Paris Roubaix!
