SIX DAYS OF CYCLING FROM THE DOLOMITES TO VENICE IN 6 MINUTES

Iin six days we biked about 240 miles from Bolzano to just outside of Venice (Mestre). Almost perfect weather and the most beautiful paths for viewing and cycling.  This tour was with Exodus, a UK based company. I highly recommend this tour.

The Dolomites along side the Adige river make this such a wonderful location.  On this day we were riding from Bolzano back to Trento. The scenery was breathtaking.

This bridge is in   Nomi , Trentino-Alto Adige/Sudtirol , Italy. What is difficult to see is the spokes that come down from the arc. This is meant to resemble a bicycle tire, and is adjacent to the bike path.

BIKING THE HILLS OF TUSCANY

In October of 2015 I did a bike tour of the Tuscan hills. Besides being a physical challenge, it was one of my best trips to Italy. Watch the video, words can not do the trip justice. Vermont Bike Tours provided great guides and wonderful accomodations. Some of the many photos I took are

If you like Italy and Toscana, plus some great food, this makes for a wonderful trip.
