Join us for a cycling training camp in the epic passes of Piemonte. Then ride the unique Giro Delle Dolomiti, the best kept secret in cycling
Experience a strength-building 17-night cycling training camp in the incredible Italian Alps and Dolomites
Icon Bike Tours is very excited to announce that our 2019 Italy Cycling Tour will combine a Training Camp amidst the stunning beauty of Piemonte (Piedmont in English) followed by participation in the fabulous six-day Giro Delle Dolomiti.
Piemonte may not be the most famous region of the Italian Alps, but it is certainly a contender for both "most beautiful" and "most challenging". The roads here are quiet, steep and high, in fact I cannot think of another cycling region that ticks every box in the way Piemonte can. Then we have the Giro Delle Dolomiti, a six-day Gran Fondo that takes the form of a stage race. Each day (90-140km) includes a mountain time trial, which determines each riders place in the week-long general classification. The remainder of each stage is a beautiful steady ride through the most magnificent roads of the Dolomites. Ride as hard or as easy as you want. The team at Icon Bike Tours have been hard at work building our Italian cycling adventure and it is going to be something special.
This tour will be run as a training camp, with longer and challenging days of riding. Each participant will be assisted with their training in Piemonte, with the aim of building strength and fitness for the "Giro". Riders will have an incredible opportunity to improve their climbing, build descending confidence, all whilst riding some of the world's most epic roads.
