Our circular route takes us in a broad loop through the Brenta Dolomites, starting each day nestled in the valleys before climbing towards the imposing peaks and finishing with a celebratory ice cream and cold beer.

The Cycling


This tour takes place between the peaks of the Brenta Dolomites, then heads south towards Lake Garda. Being a journey, each day is different, from riding up lengthy forest roads to reach viewpoints, to embarking on some great descents, to riding along valleys, streams and lake sides. This tour is designed for those who don’t mind climbing in the mountains and love a variety of descents, from flowing singletracks to forest roads.

As this tour is designed to be ridden on electric bikes the distances and ascents are longer than those normally found on a grade 3 holiday, with the grading reflecting the technical nature of the riding. For more information about riding an electric bike on our holidays please click here

When climbing out of the valleys, you will mostly be on dirt roads on a mix of compact and loose terrain, with stretches through woodland. The average gradient is between 8 to 10% with some short sections reaching 25%. On the descents, be prepared to tackle short sections with loose limestone, tight switchbacks and roots.

A full suspension e-mountain bike with at least 120 to 140mm of travel is the best option for this tour and allows you to relax and enjoy the trails. On some days, you will have the option of descending on forest roads or man-made bike trails, depending on preference and level.


Mountain Biking Grade

Grade 3 : Moderate

Distances of 25-50 miles / 40-80 kms per day

Aimed at regular cyclists who have a degree of off road experience

Some moderate and difficult technical sections

Our grading guidelines have been carefully created based on our many years of cycling experience, as well as customer feedback from our trips. Of course, if you're still struggling to figure out where you fit on the scale, do feel free to give us a quick call and we'll be more than happy to help!

For more information about our grading system click here.

Is this suitable for you?

If you have some experience of off road riding on a variety of terrain, and would like to do more, a grade 3 trip could be for you. These holidays give you elements of our higher grade trips but at a manageable level with sections of singletrack (narrow trails wide enough for one rider) and shorter steep sections (both up and down) which require more bike handling ability. A day’s ride can see you on the trails for around 8 hours (with breaks) and covering between 25-50 miles depending on the terrain. If you’re generally fit and manage to ride regularly this could be the level for you.

For more information about the grading of this holiday in particular, please check out the terrain section which will give you some specifics of what to expect on this tour.
