Itinerary

Day
1
Training Focus Group riding and riding abroad in Italy Garda, Torri del Benaco 30 km, 100 m

After arriving from Verona airport, it will be time to set up your bike and take a quick ride along the lake to Torri Del Benaco for an ice cream or perhaps your first aperitif in Italy. First coaching session on group riding and cycling in Italy by Rule5 Cycling Coaching.

Day
2
Training Focus Climbing Technique - Prada Alta 70 km, 1.100 m

Short warm-up to start the climb up to Prada. The first part offers some difficult sections at 14% and 20% incline, after which the ascent will become steady towards the top, around 5% incline, for a total climb of 22 km. A quick coffee and a croissant, then the descent towards Lake Garda which offers the best views of the area and finally the last stretch on quiet roads to the hotel. Data analysis and technical feedback from Rule5 Cycling Coaching.

Day
3
Training Focus Fueling pre, during post - Rivoli, Zuane e Bardolino 60 km, 500 m

Today you will warm up your legs before the climbs of the coming days. A ride on gentle hills, a few short steep climbs to practice the technique again and start testing the descents as well. Data analysis and technical feedback from Rule5 Cycling Coaching.

Day
4
Training Focus Climbing & Descending Peri, Fosse e Valpolicella 110 km, 1.200 m

We will pedal through the cycling path towards Trento, among the peaceful vineyards of the Val d'Adige up to Peri, to climb the first ascent: 9 km with almost 1,000 m of elevation gain. A tough climb, with an average of 9% and a section at 13%, where the pace is essential. Then a long descent towards Valpolicella for lunch, before the easier return to Garda. Data analysis and technical feedback from Rule5 Cycling Coaching.

Day
5
Training Focus Cadence and gear selection Braga 50 km, 1.000 m

A kind of active recovery day. A climb up to Braga that combines steep sections and longer, gentler parts, ideal for working on gear shifting and cadence. A short section at 18% incline interrupts the pace, where gear selection and pace are crucial. As if it were a single track, this is a very quiet road that climbs up to Monte Baldo. Data analysis and technical feedback from Rule5 Cycling Coaching.

Day
6
Training Focus Putting it all together - Monte Baldo via Avio 120 km, 1.800 m

The "Stelvio" of Lake Garda! A great day that will take us on a climb for 1 hour and 30 minutes, maybe a little more if the legs are tired from this week. After 30 km we will arrive in Avio where we will begin the impressive climb that looms ahead, winding through suggestive tunnels. Once at the top, we will have lunch in a typical Malga, before starting the technical descent towards home. A super day where you can put into practice everything you have learned. Data analysis and technical feedback from Rule5 Cycling Coaching.

Day
7
Relax 50 km, 100 m

One last short ride for an ice cream or maybe one last Negroni before leaving for the airport.

Cinelli

Ital Cycling Bike Tours offers you a road bike rental which is at a professional level.
The Superstar is Cinelli’s cutting-edge carbon fiber re-interpretation of the mythical Italian stage-racing bicycle that is the brand’s heritage and DNA.
Unlike other brands who each year offer bicycles with ever increasingly narrow scope of use, Cinelli, when developing the Superstar, obsessed over the way in which the inherent qualities of carbon fiber and its manufacturing processes could be employed to produce an aggressively contemporary version of the legendary versatility of the Italian Grand Tour ride quality i.e. the intelligent balance of low-weight, aggressive handling over highly varied terrain and long-distance riding comfort.
To this end, the Superstar not only adheres to a traditional Italian racing geometry (72,5° headtube, 407mm chainstays), but is also characterized by the shaping of the forms of the frame to allow the greatest precision and customization of the lay-up of different grades of carbon in the construction process. Note, for example, how the tangent lines joining the top and down tubes to the head tube allow for the carbon fiber to remain completely straight thus offering the maximal weight-to-stiffness ratio.
The proprietary bowed top tube, whose form allows for a controlled deformation of the top tube headtube when the frame is subject to strong vertical or horizontal forces such as potholes, poorly surface roads etc. The controlled deformation results above all in a head tube that remains 8% more parallel to its original position, allowing for greater control and predictability of handling when riding in rough conditions.
The use of both external and – unlike the majority of other models on the market – internal PU molds during the carbon curing process, allowing for greater compression of the fibers as well as minimizing the amount of resin needed and greatly increasing long-term reliability of the frame.
The coloring, glitter blue team Colpack-Ballan, is also a tribute to the limelight of the velodrome, to the world of the track that has so many similarities and points of contact with the house of Milan. The integrated carbon handlebar, RAM3 Mike Giant, once again combines innovation and power with design and art, in what can rightly be called the Cinelli style.
These are the same bicycles used by the athletes of the UCI Continental Colpack-Ballan Team, mounting Ultegra electronic shifting. You will have the privilege of getting on the same bicycles used in international professional races, perfectly maintained and with your bike fitting done at professional level by Colpack-Ballan mechanics!

Parkpre

The K60 is the ideal model for those who switch to a carbon frame for the first time and wish to do so while being careful to optimize the quality / cost ratio. Also designed for cycle touring, the reactivity and stiffness of this bike will amaze you! The monocoque carbon frame weighing about 990 grams, is characterized by modern lines, in the name of cleanliness and elegance. 

Factor

When we first premiered the Factor O2, it was ridden to mountain top stage victories at the Tour de France and second place at Paris-Roubaix. As good as that version of the O2 proved to be, this revamped O2 is even better, thanks largely to improved manufacturing techniques that allow us to make the frame lighter, stronger, and more durable.
