Road bike ride from Dolomites to Venice

Join us on this challenging road bike trip from the stunningly beautiful Dolomites past the shores of Lake Garda and onto the impressive cities of Verona and Padova. The first two days are in classic Giro d’Italia territory with some amazing ascents, descents and high passes to test you, then the terrain flattens somewhat on subsequent days. We dedicate the final day to explore the majesty of Venice travelling by train and boat from our hotel in Padova. If you prefer to continue cycling there is the option of a self-guided ride to Chioggia.

Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 474 km over 5 days (an average of 95 km per day) with a further optional ride available. We travel on paved roads in good condition and some paved cycle paths. The first two days are more challenging with some classic Giro D'Italia Dolomite passes. The rides become longer as we leave the mountains and ride on more undulating or flat terrain. A support vehicle accompanies the rides throughout the tour except on the optional self-guided ride. We have graded the route as challenging.
