Warm-up in the Veneto Cycling Paradise

From Treviso, the hometown of Pinarello, a short ride brings you to the beautiful Pinarello flagship store located just outside of town. The route then reaches the edge of the Montello where there is the option to stretch the legs on the climb that featured in the 1985 World Championship road race. After passing over the Piave river at Ponte della Priula it's time to enter the Prosecco Hills via a climb up to the beautiful Collalto castle. The more ambitious can take in the Ca' del Poggio climb before reaching the charming village of Soligo.

Exploring the Prosecco Hills

From Soligo, the ride starts with a beautiful, mostly flat stretch that hugs the Prosecco Hills. The climbing starts as we approach Valdobbiadene, the most important town in the region and home to numerous well-known vintners.

The more ambitious can head up the challenging Pianezze climb before looping back to Soligo; the less mountainous route heads back along the ridge road through Guia, which also affords wonderful views of the vineyards below.

Prosecco Hills' Epic Climbs

This spectacular day starts with a climb up to the Passo San Boldo, whose final switchback section is literally carved into the cliffside and is a feat of road engineering. More climbing awaits after Vittorio Veneto, as the route returns to the Prosecco Hills and passes through Refrontolo before returning to Soligo.

Intro to the Dolomites

A morning transfer of around 1 1⁄2 hours will bring you to the starting point at San Vito di Cadore, where a short warmup ride leads to the chic town of Cortina, a spectacular launching pad into the Dolomites. From here the real climbing begins as the route climbs to the Passo Falzarego, then a short way further the Passo Valparola, before descending into La Villa for the last gently uphill stretch into Corvara. For the mountain goats, a more challenging option is available that first takes in the ‘easier’ side of the Passo Giau before taking on the Passo Falzarego.

Welcome to the Dolomites!

Epic Dolomites

The shorter loop heads up the Passo Valparola before taking in the Passo Campolongo. For those wanting to test their limits, the longer route starts with the Passo Campolongo, before descending into Caprile and taking on the very challenging Passo Fedaia, followed by the Passo Sella and Passo Gardena. Either way, you are guaranteed breathtaking views.
