+ Cycling Trip to the Dolomites, Italy +
The Dolomites feature wild alpine meadows, deciduous and evergreen woods, lunar landscapes, high altitude terrain, alpine lakes, soaring peaks, dramatic walls, and towering heights. The imposing peaks of the Dolomite Mountains emerged tens of millions of years ago from primordial marine expanses creating an extraordinary terrain. These incredible mountains have become famous for both summer and winter sports. There are hundreds of roads and trails and climbs that wind their way through the incredible landscape with breathtaking vistas. With the combination of the geological phenomena, fascinating history, and merging of the Italian, Ladin and Austrian cultures it is no wonder the Dolomites were awarded the UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2009.
Challenge yourself on steep mountain passes, steep climbs and breathtaking descents. The Dolomites provide a high density of mountain passes within a relatively small area, and rural roads without traffic! It is no wonder then, that the Dolomites also host part of one of the toughest cycling races, the Giro d'Italia, an annual multi-stage race primarily in Italy.
+ Cycling Trip to the High French Alps +
The Alps are one of the great mountain range systems of Europe stretching approximately 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) across eight Alpine countries from Austria and Slovenia in the east, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, and France to the west, and Italy and Monaco to the south. The mountains were formed over hundreds of millions of years as the African and Eurasian tectonic plates collided. Extreme shortening caused by the event resulted in marine sedimentary rocks rising by thrusting and folding into high mountain peaks such as Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. Mont Blanc spans the French–Italian border, and at 4,810.45 m (15,782 ft) is the highest mountain in the Alps. The Alpine region area contains many peaks higher than 4,000 m (13,123 ft), known as the "four-thousanders."
This Alpine region has strong cultural identity: traditional culture of farming, cheese making, and woodworking still exists in Alpine villages. Tourist industry began to grow early in the 20th century and expanded greatly after World War II to become the dominant industry by the end of the century. The Winter Olympic Games have been hosted in the Swiss, French, Italian, Austrian and German Alps.
Climbs like L’Alpe d’Huez have been a regular stage finish in La Tour de France since 1976. Many other climbs like Col du Tourmalet, Col d’Aubisque, Col du Galibier, Col de la Columbiere, Col de la Madeleine are all climbs that have been featured on the Tour de France, and are featured on this trip.
