SOAVE - FOLLINA
10 DAYS - 9 NIGHTS
This is a tour for the true intermediate cyclist who takes their riding and eating seriously. The Pre-Alpine area of the Veneto region is the ideal region for such a cyclist. Plenty of undulating terrain, spectacular views, captivating cities known for their art and gastronomic delights.
In this tour we discover the beautiful city of Bassano with it’s medieval wooden bridge, Marostica, Valdobbiadene with its delicious Prosecco wine as well as many other locations. We’ll visit the Wilier head office as well as the Gaerne shoes factory all based in this idyllic region.
And If you haven’t been to Venice before, why not taking a day trip in the city of the Gondolas?
The perfect combination for a great cycling Experience!
WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?
The experience is built for all riders able to ride for 3-5 hours. This is not a race or high intensity riding, but rather a true cycling adventure across one of the most picturesque region in the world.
We will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the short climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride. On top of each major climb we will regroup to celebrate and refill our bottles, and then enjoy the descent together. As a team, we’ll support each other during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy!
All cyclists interested in exploring a new region, learning about local culture while admiring magnificent scenery will enjoy this incredible experience!

MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN
We have selected some of the best routes offering a mix of all terrains, but the terrain will be mainly hilly with some 3-5 km climbs, but also a lot of flat-undulating sections.
The start from Soave is perfect as it mostly flat, then route become hilly with some climbing towards the end of the tour approaching Follina.
The climbs are never hard as the gradient is always around 6-8% and when steeper, generally for short distances.
The roads are well-paved and safe, with drivers showing incredible respect for cyclists!
