Note: On this Family Trip, our routes follow rolling to hilly terrain with a few steep ascents and descents. Please note that we use Backroads Titanium mountain bikes on this trip which are just right for the non-technical paved and dirt road riding we encounter.

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 bikes are equipped with wider and knobbier tires to accommodate the paths and trail surfaces.

What's Included

Available Bike Options

The key to a stellar day's ride is a bike that's perfectly in tune with your cycling style… Backroads has you covered with the best bike fleet in the world! Read on for your available bike options for this trip.

Suspension Mountain Bike

This custom-built titanium mountain bike is ideal for for all adventures from dirt roads to rough terrain. Equipped with a suspension fork, knobby tires and low mountain bike gearing.

NEW! Electric-Assist Bike

Our newly redesigned titanium e-bike is a lightweight yet powerful machine unique in the world of e-bikes. It provides plenty of power to flatten the hills and more than enough battery range to cover the distance.

Backroads is the only travel company to manufacture its own line of kid's bikes. While the wheels might be small, the performance is big—it's the perfect choice for kids. On our Family Trips, you'll find 20" and 24" bikes.

The Burley Kazoo trailer bike, for children up to 85 pounds, attaches to an adult bike with your child providing some of the pedal power for a real team effort! It's ideal for kids who aren't yet ready for bike touring.
