Randonnée Dolomites – Al contrario

A special twist on our signature Rapha Randonnée, the perfect mixture of spectacular riding, food and culture. The route sets off from Lake Como and heads East, crossing the Sud Tirol on its’ journey to Venice. Along the way the Randonneurs will pass through some of the Giro d’Italia’s most renowned and respected passes, and sample the Südtirol’s unique cuisine and inimitable culture.

“For dramatic scenery, smooth roads and incredible food and drink, the Dolomites are hard to beat. The Sud Tirol region combines a splendid culture with immaculate towns and glorious mountain passes. From there you will visit the Mortirolo, Stelvio and Ghisallo, revisiting the same roads and climbs as heroes like Coppi, Gimondi and Pantani, with the shouts of the tifosi in your ears.”
Simon Mottram, Rapha CEO
