Stelvio, Mortirolo, Gavia, Monte Grappa & the iconic climbs of the Maratona Sportive

This is a 7 night / 8 day supported point-to-point tour, starting in Venice and finishing in Milan. We have carefully crafted the itinerary to guarantee as many of Italy’s A-list cols in the shortest time possible. All you have to do is ride these icons of Italy: Stelvio, Mortirolo, Gavia, Monte Grappa & the iconic climbs of the Maratona Sportive.

A detailed itinerary will be published below in due course.

Half-board accommodation is included throughout in exceptional cycle-friendly hotels with a delicious 3 or 4 course meal every evening and a substantial breakfast every morning (always with plenty of carbs). We will also provide your transfers from Venice (Marco Polo) airport at the start, and to Milan Malpensa airport at the end – just get to Venice airport and we’ll do the rest.

We have a maximum of 14 guest places on this tour, with a support team of two riders, two vehicles and a mechanic. Our support minibuses continually leap-frog the group with chilled water, High 5 energy gels & bars, fresh & dried fruit, Haribos, spare kit etc., and are on hand to assist with mechanical issues should they occur. We manage the group so that everyone can ride at the pace that they are comfortable with, and will regroup regularly, and always at the top of a col.

We are not here to beast you, but rather to encourage you, and share in the challenge and triumph of the conquest. We dine together every evening to celebrate the latest victories and share the stories of the day.
