The Pinarello Cycling Marathon is a challenging Gran Fondo sportive that starts in the beautiful town of Treviso and heads into the Dolomites. Treviso is home to the Italian sparkling wine Prosecco and the internationally renowned cycling brand, Pinarello, which hosts La Pinarello Cycling Marathon every year: we have a special relationship with the Pinarello family, and we absolutely can’t miss it! It is a great experience: La Pinarello is not only a Granfondo, but a party for the whole town. The town is taken over by cyclists from across Italy and around the world for this celebration of the famous Pinarello brand and Italian cycling. We want to offer to all our cycling guests the opportunity to join in and have fun with us!
The shorter Medio Fondo takes you into the lower hills just north of Treviso where you will ride through the unique Prosecco vineyard landscape. This route is 114km long and features a few Category 3 hills. It is a good challenge for the average rider. The longer Gran Fondo route takes you up and over the Treviso Alps and returns you via a shoulder of the Monte Grappa massif. This route is 158km long and the mountain crossings are Category 1 climbs. This route is a serious challenge for the experienced, well trained cyclist. Join us, and participate in this new experience!
This is a 6 nights minimum stay package: we have planned: 3 nights stay in Treviso, from Friday, 17th July, to Monday, 20th July. And then… just book your stay in Lake Garda as you like! (3 nights minimum... before or after)
You might want to stay with us before the Pinarello Marathon to warm up. Or you might consider coming here after the Gran Fondo, to relax by riding along the lake, or through our beautiful vineyards. It’s totally up to you, we can personalize your holiday anyway you like!
