An Insider’s Account of the Maratona dles Dolomites Bike Race

This summer we came across an article written by Peter Walker, a journalist for the Guardian who joined the 2015 event.

What we really love about his account is the juxtaposition of the endurance with the overwhelming sense of achievement that he felt during this race. Peter Walker is not a pro and his description of how it feels to participate in this race conveys the experience that we wish to give our guests when they come with us on this adventure.

He mentions the breathlessly beautiful scenery, the intense physical exertion and the sense of camaraderie with fellow riders. No one in our office was surprised at all to read his ultimate endorsement:

“Even amid the pain, I think: I would recommend the Maratona to anyone.”

We will be putting together a trip to the 2016 Maratona dles Dolomites and if you would like to join us we’d be delighted to make it happen for you.
