Five stages in seven days, 36,089 feet (11,000 meters) of climbing: the "Eleven Thousand in the Dolomites" by the Dolomite Biking Guide Team. Details:
Who is able to pedal 11,000 vertical meters in one week? – This is the new
challenge launched by Maria Canins. A unique opportunity, thanks to the proximity of so many major passes within the breathtaking scenery of the Italian Dolomites.
Five non-competitive tours will be accompanied by local guides from Dolomite Biking
including car assistance and food supplies. Special guests: Maria Canins, Gianni Bugno and Claudio Chiappucci. There are two dates available.
