What started as a challenge amongst friends to stay motivated and continue training during lockdown, has now become a yearly ritual attended by the wider cycling community. Starting from Bassano del Grappa, passing through some of the most beautiful areas around us we arrive to Alta Badia.

Starting from the Bassano Club House in Angarano, Bassano del Grappa, the first day is a constant uphill. Passing through some of the most beautiful areas around us we arrive to Alleghe before a 28 km ascent of Passo Falzarago followed favourably by a rewarding descent down to Alta Badia.

Upon arrival, the hospitality of Hotel Melodia del Bosco treats us to an aperitivo & 4 course dinner while we share stories from the epic day which we have just accomplished. The following morning, it’s important to refuel at the complimentary breakfast buffet and take in the surrounding beautiful views before a 130 km back to Bassano del Grappa.
For 2024 we will have 2 groups taking on this rewarding challenge, with both a Road Route and a Gravel Route available.


May 18: Bassano > Badia – we meet at 07:00 in the Bassano Club House situated in Angarano, Bassano del Grappa for coffee/brioche before starting the epic 140 km ride to the dolomites. Along the route there are 2 fuelling stations providing nutrition, snacks and bottle refill. Arrival in Hotel Melodia del Bosco includes 1 night stay (based on 2 sharing), aperitivo and 3 course dinner.


May 19: Badia > Bassano – after a complimentary continental breakfast , riders start with the short climb over Passo Campolongo before descending back down to Bassano del Grappa. A much quicker ride with less climbing than the the day before but still a testing day out on the legs. Similar to day 1 there is 2 scheduled feed stops for all the riders. Upon arrival back to Bassano del Grappa refreshments are waiting at the Bassano Club House.
