    Road Biking In the Dolomites

    Full Description

    Montecampione, Vivione, Mortirolo, Aprica, Gavia, Stelvio: these are just a few of the ascents in and around our base in Ponte di Legno. Together with you, we will make a daily schedule, depending on the weather conditions, your motivation and preparation. We will take care of the guiding and logistics: you will just have to concentrate on your riding!

    In heart of the central Italian Alps, Ponte di Legno is a cycling paradise and a perfect destination from May to October. The top of the famous Gavia Pass is "just" 17km from the town centre. Stelvio, the second highest Alpine pass in Europe at 2758m above sea level, is on the other side of the Gavia. The Gavia, the Stelvio and the Mortirolo climbs around Ponte di Legno are a regular feature of the Giro d'Italia.

    Join us to ride the epic Stelvio, Gavia and Mortirolo passes as well as many other lesser known, but no less challenging climbs. We can organise your cycling holiday for you, including every detail from when we pick you up to when we transfer you back to the airport at the end of your trip.

    We have been serving cyclists for many years and we have put together a comprehensive range of services to ensure you have nothing to worry about except for riding your bike.
