Climb the epic passes of Piemonte & ride the unique Giro Delle Dolomiti, the best kept secret in cycling
Icon Bike Tours is very excited to announce that our 2019 Italy Cycling Tour will combine the stunning beauty of Piemonte (Piedmont in English) with participation in the fabulous Giro Delle Dolomiti. Piemonte may not be the most famous region of the Italian Alps, but it is certainly a contender for both "most beautiful" and "most challenging". The roads here are quiet, steep and high, in fact I cannot think of another cycling region that ticks every box in the way Piemonte can. Then we have the Giro Delle Dolomiti, a six-day Gran Fondo that takes the form of a stage race. Each day (90-140km) includes a mountain time trial, which determines each riders place in the week-long general classification. The remainder of each stage is a beautiful steady ride through the most magnificent roads of the Dolomites. Ride as hard or as easy as you want. The team at Bubba's Cycling Tours have been hard at work building our Italian cycling adventure and it is going to be something special.
