Trans-Dolomites, What a Week…
I’ve just arrived back from a fantastic week of cycling in the Dolomites with Thomson Bike Tours (http://www.thomsonbiketours.com/trips/Dolomites-01/index.html).
Very impressed with the riding, the scenery and of course the food… the Italians (like the French) sure know how to eat, especially after a big day on the bike.
We started in the eastern Dolomites (Alleghe), having driven from Chez Passet to Barcelona, caught the Ferry (that was a cultural experience) to Genova and then drove to Alleghe – the week finished in Bormio.
Highlight was cycling the Passo Mortirolo and Gavia in a day and the descent to the hotel for a cold one (didn’t touch the sides).
