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 there is climbing on the program, how much is up to you. For those wanting a tamer challenge, a scenic loop takes you up to the Canova Temple in Possagno, before hugging the Colli Asolani through Cornuda and on to Maser. From here, it's time to get acquainted again with the small ring, with a challenging 3 km up to the Forcella Mostaccin before returning to Asolo.
For the more ambitious, the imposing Monte Grappa awaits with its 17 km and 1500 m of altitude change. Whichever route you decide to take, a cool Aperitivo with beautiful views awaits you back in Asolo.
A short early morning ride has us at the start line in Bassano del Grappa. 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.
