YOUR RIDE  

WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?

The experience is built for all riders able to ride for 4-6 hours. The Granfondo is a high-intensity race, but in contrast the acclimatization tour is a true cycling adventure at moderate pace across one of the most picturesque region in the world.

During the acclimatization tour, we will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride. During the race, you will ride at your own pace, and we will support you at the start, on the route, and at the finish line. You ride; we’ll take care of everything else: accommodations, food, bike, massage, laundry, and more!

All cyclists interested in Granfondo but also in exploring a new region and amidst magnificent scenery will enjoy this incredible experience!
