Climb Passo delle Erbe from an "alternative" road
Cortina, the Tre Cime di Lavaredo and Lake Misurina, a must-see!
A magnificent hotel and Ladin traditions and cuisine
The Dolomites, "the most beautiful mountains in the world" according to the famous alpinist Reinhold Messner. A vertical sea of ??pale smooth rocks, perfect places for trekking along paths that have great historical value, the Great War was fought here. And of course, roads that are closely linked with cycling: the Sella Ronda Bike Day and the Marathon of the Dolomites are cycle-amateur events of global fame. And in Corvara, on 5 June 1993, Claudio Chiappucci won a historic stage of the Giro D'Italia, beating all the best under the hail. In this holiday you can retrace that stage, the same climbs, from which the view sweeps over sublime white peaks. Sublime dinners, dedicated by the chefs to Ladin cuisine, will be part of this holiday.
Accommodation: Hotel Col Alto.
Our staff will be pleased or to take you from the airport to your hotel. During the trip you will get to know the team who is going to be there for you in this week. After our first briefing, we will make a check of the equipment and of the positioning bike, before a first short ride in groups to get rid of the toxins accumulated during the trip.
This area, Lagazuoi Falzarego was the scene of important actions during the Great War and the territory still shows the its traces. After the long climb that ends at the Valparola Pass, the stop at Falzarego pass and the view of the surrounding peaks, you will have great fun on the long descent towards Arabba. After the usual briefing, this evening dinner at the hotel will be preceded by a tasting of excellent South Tyrolean wines.
Today you will be on the most desired roads by a cyclist! The Sella Group will be the constant, majestic and amazing presence of this training. So many exploits of great cycling have happened on these hairpin bends, champions like Fausto Coppi have tamed these roads, paved with porphyry at the time. Post-workout relaxation at the hotel's wellness center.
Today we will walk, a "break" from the cycling program. A day of relaxing and wonderful trekking cannot be missing in the Dolomites. Ital Cycling staff will lead you to the Pisciadù waterfall and the Boè Lake, symbolic places of Alta Badia and will prepare for you a beautiful picnic to be enjoyed in the woods. Fill up your lungs with oxygen… you will need it for the next rides!
To reach Passo delle Erbe we will ride on roads with no traffic at all, and we will often find ourselves in the woods. A long climb, even if a demanding one, will give you a lot of satisfaction. For those who want, there will be an appendix towards the Furcia Pass. A strong reintegration of calories will be needed after all this: the dinner at a lovely farm serving the rich Ladin cuisine, it will be a “masterchef” evening, served by a top Italian chef.
The last ride. A special ride. We will arrive with our van in Cortina D'Ampezzo. Along the ring track we have planned for you, you will be lucky enough to see the Tre Cime di Lavaredo (the pride at the end of a hard, intense, challenging climb) and the blue Lake of Misurina, the pearls of Dolomites. Today, on you return to the hotel you will feel quenched and amazed by the beauty of Italy.
The staff will accompany you to Verona airport after checking out from the hotel. You have time for the
last photos at this natural spectacle. Goodbye beautiful Dolomites!

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.
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.
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.
