Description

Mark your calendars because “Dolomites Cycling Weeks” will run from May 19th to June 23rd and from September 01st to 23rd in 2018!

Ride alongside two-wheel enthusiasts on their daily training routes with groups divided
into 2 levels.

We offer 4 escorted outings during the week and our tour escorts can recommend routes for the off-days based on your athletic conditioning.

Length 7 nights

Level °° - °°°°

Program

Holimites cycling groups:

participants will be divided into two different groups. Depending on their level of personal athletic fitness, each day bikers can choose the group that best suits him/her for that particular outing. This means that bikers don’t have to stay with the same group for all outings.

Specifically, the groups are:

CLIMBER: Aimed at bikers who want to use the Dolomites as good training ground and plan on accumulating as many meters in elevation gain as possible.
Average daily distance in this group: 80 ~ 130 km
Average cycling speed per outing, depending on route conditions: 20 ~ 25 km/h

PASSISTA: Aimed at those who don’t mind stopping at the top of the passes to take a picture, enjoy the view, chat a bit with friends, and wait for latecomers. They’re only interested in average cycling speed in order to stick to the schedule and get back to the hotel for a relaxing afternoon.
Average daily distance in this group: 70 ~ 110 km
Average cycling speed per outing, depending on route conditions: 16 ~ 22 km/h

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Unfortunately, I can’t join the tour for the full week. Can I sign up for just part of it?
No, the 'Cycling Week' package is for a minimum stay of 7 nights.

I don’t own a GPS device but I would like to have the chance to win a registered spot for the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel race. What can I do?
During the reservation phase you can request to rent a GPS unit. The Holimites Staff will show you how it works and help you to upload your route data onto our partner STRAVA’s website (www.strava.com).

I already own a GPS device but I don’t know how STRAVA works. Will you help me?
Yes, definitely. The Holimites Staff will create your STRAVA registration for you or help you create it. We will also show you how to upload your route data.

Do I have to participate in all the bike outings?
No, each rider can decide for himself/herself when to take a day off to rest. What is more, Holimites can organize alternative programs, such as visits and trail hikes that are also ideal for accompanying non-cyclists that want to join the tour.

What if it rains?
Weather conditions are a factor beyond our control. For this reason, the week is planned with two backup days (Wednesday and Saturday) that can be used to reschedule the outings that were cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
