Cycling in the Dolomites: an inspiring Italian adventure

A lakeside group dinner filled with cheese, wine, meat, laughter, speeches, awards and more cheese. These were the joyous, late-night scenes of the finale dinner on our inaugural Park Bikes Dolomites Grand Tour 2018.

And though this trip was more about the once in a lifetime experiences riding over the fascinating landscapes and awe-inspiring passes of the Dolomites, this moment will no doubt remain at the pointy end of the many lasting memories, and is a reminder of the real element of atmosphere and comradery that accompanied the world-class riding on this trip.

Having just completed 8 of the most challenging and inspiring days of cycling in our lives, including climbs such as the Stelvio, Gavia, Mortirolo & Sella Ronda, this group of adventure-seeking Aussie cyclists were not going to miss their chance to let their hair down and celebrate for the night.

When we first sat down with Nash Kent (owner of Park Bikes, Sydney) to discuss the idea of organising a trip to the Dolomites for his customers, we began a journey that has reinforced so much confidence in why we do what we do. Our first international trip was an amazing success, not only due to the fantastic group of people who were involved but the months of successful planning and execution. Furthermore, we are now more excited than ever to go back. We’ve worked on many ways to improve the logistics, and can’t wait till the 9th of June 2019 so we can provide an even better customer experience.

Some of the most lasting memories of the trip in 2018 are those that can only come about from bringing together a diverse group of people who share a common healthy interest, such as riding a bike up a bloody big mountain! We are on the scout for another great bunch of people.


Climbing the Stelvio Pass is a special experience that any passionate cyclist should attempt at least once in their life. If you’re even a little bit interested in joining us, this is the trip of a lifetime, come and ride with us!

The 75 switchbacks that lead up to what is the highest paved mountain pass in Italy demands courage and respect, yet rewards all that conquer it with so much pride and self-admiration, something that all of last year’s guests can attest to. Every single rider made it to the top of the Stelvio Pass!

This year, we will be returning to Italy for our 2nd edition of the Dolomites Grand Tour, 9-18th June 2019. As well as revisiting this year’s key climbs, 2019 guests will have the opportunity to take on a number of other famous climbs of the Giro d’Italia, including the Monte Grappa & Passo Giau.
