10, August 2015: Renowned adventure company Summit & Blue has announced a new itinerary to add to their range of activity holidays, which encompasses participation in the 2016 Maratona dles Dolomites cycle race in South Tyrol.
A Challenge for Keen Cyclists
With the 2015 edition completed on July 5th this year, Managing Director of Summit & Blue, Richard Edwards, says avid cyclists are already looking forward to the 2016 event. "Many of the team at Summit & Blue are passionate cyclists themselves, and we know this race is a bucket list item for a lot of people. We were so inspired by this unique and challenging event that we wanted to offer our guests the opportunity to take part themselves."
A Diverse and Challenging Route
As one of the most popular Grandfondo bike races in Italy, the Maratona dles Dolomites attracts both professional and amateur cyclists. A field of around 9,000 participants from more than 40 countries is expected to front up once again for the 2016 event, which takes in the challenging terrain of the beautiful Dolomites, in the South Tyrol region.
Cyclists can choose from routes of varying lengths: a â€˜short’ course of 55km, a medium of 106km and the full of 138km. With steep mountain passes and altitudes ranging from 1700m up to 4200m, the race is certainly not for the unfit, however organisers say it is possible to switch to the lower grade routes along the way if necessary.
Mr Edwards went on to say that the incredible scenery and wonderfully welcoming culture of the South Tyrol area is a major part of the overall experience of this new four-night holiday. "As with all our activity holidays, we focus on taking care of the details so our guests can get on with having fun. Our team will take care of the race registration, brief guests on race conditions and a guide will check over their bikes pre-race. We've got everything covered."
Although it's almost a full year away, due to the popularity of the race interested participants are advised to consider booking this holiday early.
