 YOUR

WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?

The experience is built for all riders able to ride for 4-6 hours. The HR 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!

MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN

For the acclimatization tour we have selected some of the best routes, offering a mix of all terrains, but the terrain will be mainly Mountainous with long sized climbs. The start from Bolzano is perfect, as it offers some flat terrain together with great climbs.

 

The climbs are long but never very steep, as the gradient is always around 5-7%, but most of them are more than 15 km long!

The roads are well-paved and safe, with drivers showing incredible respect for cyclists!

 

The race course has yet to be announced, but most likely it will be similar to what we have already done, just at a different pace!
