About The Challenge

Cycle flat plains and forested hills, from Venice on the Adriatic Coast to the famous lakes-and-mountains scenery of Lombardy, there's enough variety to please any cyclist on this adventure!

Averaging 80 miles a day, each day offers a scenic climb to test your legs but with our highest point at 754m – the Madonna del Ghisallo chapel – it’s an achievable ride for anyone willing to train!

This exciting and beautiful route is so much more than a journey between two iconic Italian cities – on the way it takes in three of the great Italian lakes: Garda, Como and Iseo, as well as the Romeo and Juliet city of Verona. Add in small terracotta-roofed villages, overnight stops in picturesque lakeside towns, good roads, and plenty of opportunities for recharging on Italian coffee and gelato – this is the ultimate Italian cycle challenge!

What's Included?

The event is organised by Discover Adventure, a leader in running international trips who designed this trip in the last few years. That means you get all the bells and whistles included to make your challenge enjoyable, memorable and safe.

The route has full maps and route files, experienced, first-aid trained ride leaders, mechanics and a full support team providing water, snacks and banter! It's also likely you will be cycling with other groups across the UK so you'll have plenty of chances to make lifelong friends.

Meals are at hotels, cafes and restaurants to soak in the local cuisine
