This short tour is well-suited for riders of different levels. The "col collectors" will have the opportunity to tick many boxes from their bucket list and challenge themselves on the long Maratona course (138km). The short (55km) and medium (106km) courses are ideal to get a taste of mountain riding with short and ridiculously scenic climbs."Can I do it?" That's what you may ask yourself. Kath was wondering too before riding the Maratona last year. Read her story here.

Prior to the Maratona Gran Fondo on Sunday, we will enjoy three days of cycling to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Dolomites. We will also relax on the day before the event to enjoy the local cuisine, unique culture and extraordinary history of the South Tyrol. All of this with the support of our bike-friendly hotel situated next to the registration village and run by our good friend Klaus.

This trip is ideal for your non-riding partner and your children, who will enjoy a wonderful holiday in the Dolomites; activities such as hiking, a Summer For Kids programme, wellness and golf are available (contact us for more information). There is a Grand Tours Project for everybody!
