My name is James, I'm 47 years old, and I love cycling. On my bike, I've learned to observe the world with calmness. I love nature, and when I discovered DBD in the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage, I said to myself: "that's where I want to ride."
I've always been a fan of the Giro, and the stages in the Dolomites are my dream. My dream is to ride on those roads without worrying about cars and motorbikes.The passes on the circuit
Thanks to my bike, I have discovered the pleasure of admiring the world with calmness, and I understood what my limits are. Now, I want to realise my biggest dream: to cycle on the roads where the Giro has written history.The cycling route
I know that in June it can be cold in the Dolomites. Particularly above 2,000 meters. I will plan everything accordingly: jacket, arm warmers, vest, leg warmers, and shoe covers.The right clothing
I know I could bring my bike, but how will they treat it in transit? I will also seek professional help about what's the best bike to use for the day.Rent a bike
"Da Ciaulonch a Fauzare ruon con puoch plu de n vare", as the Ladins say. From Campolongo pass to Falzarego pass it only takes little more than one step.
The Mür dl Giat is a 350m climb with a maximum gradient of 19%.
We were ready to ride, safe in the knowledge that we were going to have a wonderful day, come rain or shine. But for reasons everyone knows, it's not going to happen. Unfortunately, we must postpone the event until next year. Our shared dream, to ride at the foot of the Dolomites free from traffic, and on the climbs that have written the history of cycling, is only postponed.
We will see you next year, on 12.06.2021 to be precise. So dear cyclists, champions and amateurs, women and men, fathers, mothers and children, young and old: keep dreaming and cycle when you can. The Dolomites are here waiting for you. We hope you have a happy and safe Summer. Best wishes.
