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

Main Route: 40km – 25mi

This is a warm-up ride to ease the legs and body into it.  Some of you may have only recently stepped off a plane, so this ride offers a great way to “tease” out that tiredness.  It will take in some small climbs and offer spectacular views across the vineyards and the surrounding mountains.

Day Two - Soave loop to Verona

Main Route: 75km – 52mi 
 | Total Ascent: 1100m – 3600ft

Day Four – Bassano loop to Monte Grappa

Main Route: 65km – 40mi | Total Ascent: 1500m – 5290ft

The Monte Grappa is one of the symbol of the Veneto region for many reasons, but mainly for the huge battles fought during World War One, when thousands of Italian and Austrian toops died. From a cycling perpsective, it’s the major mountain before you reach the Alps and the Dolomites.  Our climb is long and steady with the “occasional” steep section.  Good luck!

Main Route: 60km – 37mi | Total Ascent: 1000m – 3300ft

Our route takes us 60km today, crossing two amazing medieval towns which have splendid walls constructed in 300AD and are still considered some of the best preserved in Europe.  After this morning’s adventure, we head to the Wilier factory to check out first-hand the Wilier range and talk to the staff to glean all technical aspects.
