Your Experience

Our Cycling Weekenders are time efficient cycling breaks exploring the most iconic cycling locations made famous by the Grand Tours and the Monuments. Running from Wednesday to Sunday, you'll stay in one place and you'll have 4 epic fully supported days on a bike. Our Weekenders Series includes: the Stelvio, the Dolomites, Mont Ventoux, Flanders. We offer set dates throughout the year but groups can contact us for any date.

Four days in climbing wonderland. If you only ever go on one cycling break, make sure it's to the Dolomites. Classic climbs, unbelievable scenery & great food. It does not get better!

The Dolomites is a special place in the cycling world. Ask anyone that's been and they will rave about the incredible scenery, warm hospitality and amazing climbs (and descents!). On this trip we spend 4 nights in Corvara. On the rides we take in the classic climbs of the region including the Passo Giau, Sella Ronda and some local routes off the beaten path. The routes for the main bunch are challenging but suitable for most regular riders, the front group routes are more suited to experienced climbers. Corvara is the perfect setting for post ride R&R. Our hotel has a spa and sports massage and the terrace out front is made for a couple of beers as the sun goes down over the mountains.

Tour Highlights

Ride the Sella Ronda: Often called the best cycling route in the world, the Sella Ronda is a circular route over four climbs with amazing views throughout.

R&R in beautiful Corvara: Our hotel is in Corvara, our favourite cycling town in the world & the home of the popular Maratona. Perfect for post ride spas & beers on the balcony.

Incredible views, every ride: The true highlight of this long weekend is the scenery in all directions. On every ride we are surrounded by incredible views, clean air and life affirming riding.
