Note: For the best riding in the Dolomites, we've chosen a combination of small quiet roads and some unpaved bike paths with stretches of limited van support. Our routes follow rolling to hilly terrain with a few steep ascents and descents. 

Please note that on this trip we use Backroads Titanium touring bikes fitted with wide and knobby tires which are just right for the non-technical paved and dirt road riding we encounter.
