Trip at a Glance
Day by Day Breakdown
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.
This spectacular day starts by heading East through the town of Rolle, and descending down to the valley road connecting Vittorio Veneto and Valdobbiadene. The more ambitious have the option at this point of taking on the Passo San Boldo, a breathtaking 7 km climb carved into a cliffside of the Belluno pre-alps. The route then continues through Cison di Valmareno, and climbs up to the town of Combai, before descending into Valdobbiadene and crossing the Piave river to enter the Colli Asolani area. The last climb of the day is into Asolo, also known as “the Town with a Hundred Horizons”.
Today we explore the area around Bassano del Grappa, beautifully situated along the Brenta river. The first part of the route passes through some of the towns nestled below the imposing Monte Grappa. For those up for a little more exploring, an extra loop brings you to Marostica and up the stunning La Rosina climb which offers fantastic views of the Venetian plains. Whichever route you pick, it’s a mostly flat return to Asolo before the final push back into town.
A short early morning ride has us at the start line in Possagno. The CyclingHero team will be on hand to help with any last-minute requirements before the start, and also at the finish to take part in the festivities.
After a last breakfast, it’s time to head back to Treviso or Venice for your trip home or further explorations in the area.
