/ Dolomites v Italian Alps
Hi I am planning a 5 day road cycling trip to either Bormio in the Italian Alps or the Dolomites in mid June. Ive heard great reports about both areas regarding the quality of routes, scenery and climbs. Id be keen to hear from anyone who has cycled in both areas and what your recommendations would be in choosing either one of these great locations.
thanks in advance.
Not cycled either, but have visited both and would go for Dolomites based on scenery, food, attractiveness of towns & villages, people, most things really.
Geographically, The Dollies lean more to tours & circuits, whereas the Alps side leans more towards there & back long valleys geography.
Dolomites are amazing in June. And on the 22nd there's the Sella Ronda Bike Day when they close the roads on the 3 big passes. Did it last year and there were 20,000 bikes. Going back this year for more..
