Bike Tours Italy: Dolomites

Cycling the Dolomites is without a doubt one of the grandest bike tours in Italy. The mountain range is one of the most impressive in the world; over 7000 sq km of rocky outcrops spread along Italy's northeastern corner.

This region offers bike tours for both beginner and advanced cyclists. While the mountain passes themselves are incredibly strenuous, there are – believe it or not – several flat bike paths winding through the mountains and alpine meadows. Both the Adige and Rienza rivers provide excellent bike paths for beginners who prefer to see – instead of cycle through – the Dolomites.

Unlike bike tours in western Italy, the Dolomites are a mix of cultures and languages. Italian, German and Ladin (a regional dialect) are spoken throughout the region. At times, you'll feel you're in Germany rather than Italy.

And did we mention the food? This collection of cultures is seen its cuisine: be sure to try strangolapreti (spinach and potato stuffed pasta), casunziei (beef ravioli with poppy seeds) and sones (a German-influenced pastry similar to apple fritters).

When To Cycle Dolomites

Expect warm, wet summers and cold, dry winters. Avoid July and August when rains are at their hardest. The best months for biking are June and September. If you're hit with unexpected rain, park your bike outside a hotel; Italy is well known for their hospitality towards cyclists, and many will let you wait out the storm before continuing down the road.
