DAY FIVE REST DAY

No riding today. A well earned rest day where we visit one of the most stunning cities in the world, Venice. We'll also get to try our hand at making cheese and of course, taste some more Prosecco!

DAY SIX FOLLINA LOOP TO VITTORIO VENETO

Spectacular day's ride that winds up and down the vine clad hills and wineries of the 'Strada del Prosecco'. A very enjoyable day in the saddle.

DAY SEVEN FOLLINA LOOP TO SAN BOLDO PASS

A very interesting and spectacular day as we ride over the San Boldo mountain, up the impossibly tight switchbacks of Passo San Baldo to the picturesque countryside towards the Piave river. Two great climbs and glorious views at almost every turn, before a fantastic descent down from Praderadego. There will be much to celebrate at our final dinner!
