Ride The Finest
The Dolomites is a playground for cycling and our trip will take you over the regions finest ascents, with over 16,000m of elevation over the week. Our Escapes are not races, they're social trips designed for those who want to experience the challenges of back to back days in the high mountains.
One Experience to Last a Lifetime
In 2023 the Dolomites Escape will take place in September, our favourite time to ride. With just one trip to the Dolomites in 2023, it's sure to be an incredible experience that will create a lifetime of memories.
Stay at Hotel Melodia del Bosco in Alta Badia. This cycling focussed hotel is the perfect base to ride the Dolomites best climbs. A continental breakfast is served each morning and a 5 course dinner is offered each evening to fuel the days ahead. After each ride, relax in the Spa, enjoy the sauna, or chill on the water beds.

It would honestly be hard to pick fault with the trip, the hotel was excellent, food was excellent, rides were out of this world and the group spirit was superb for a bunch who were thrown together.

The Dolomites are a cyclists dream and Band of Climbers brought this dream to life. A healthy cocktail of enthusiasm and excitement translating in to fun, comradeship and a lasting sense of achievement. I don’t believe this trip will be surpassed. It was like cycling with your best mates!

This is an amazing trip for the price. Every possible need is catered for, the hotel is totally bike friendly and located in the midst of so many epic climbs. The routes were varied in intensity from day to day and even when the weather turned sour a rapid plan B was always drawn up for those who wanted to cycle no matter what the weather
