„It is always amazing how beautiful the Dolomites are. On this tour we have consciously decided for another itinerary. The route is full of highlights, without extremely difficult passages. But all mountain bikers will be in their element. It will be hard to find more view without additional elevation gain. The descents offer a good mixture of different trails. This tour promises to put you in a good mood.“
