The Dolomites Cycle Tour part 1

This is the second running of our trip to ‘the continent’, apparently all went well last time so the same format was followed again. That is six of us all pile into a tiny motorhome that we cart around the mountains in search of the best climbs, coffee and pizza on offer. As a guide…
