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.

We arrived in the Soave region of Italy. Famous for its grapes.

Here is the link to a aerial video of our 6 days of riding.  It was an amazing trip. The video was recorded from Relive The RIde, a great website for cycling.
