E-MTB Dolomites, Italy
We’re thrilled about this new adventure in one of Europe’s most developed E-MTB regions where having a regular pedal bike is almost an oddity. This traverse showcases what is possible on these new machines as we cross the heart of the spectacular Dolomites over five big and amazing days of riding. Two nights will be spent in rifugios where you’ll carry your toothbrush and evening clothes on your back (the huts are well-equipped) and on five nights your luggage will be waiting for you at the hotel. Riders will carry an extra battery on most days so there’s no chance of running out of juice. We’ll use some lifts and climb some singletrack when possible, some dirt roads and even some asphalt – we always aim for the best singletrack descents. This is the ultimate Dolomites E-MTB adventure!

"To experience the Dolomites on e-bikes is the way it should be done. Big days on the bike but we still had something left in the tank to fully enjoy all of the beautiful things of northern Italy. What a trip!”
