Among true cycling fans, the start of summer was the prelude to great days out on their bike: not being able to hop onto their saddle for so long hit them hard. Now, after weeks of lockdown and long hours on the rollers, every biker has finally taken a sigh of relief as they are doing what they love outdoors. The perfect ingredients to dream up new goals and one which stands out from the rest is the HERO Südtirol Dolomites, which has been postponed to June 2021.

The offer includes three nights (check-in on Thursday night), and the excursion will take place on Friday and Saturday to then return home on Sunday.

Participants can request the services of an expert Mountain Bike Guide who will accompany bikers in predetermined small groups to comply with safety measures. Gerhard Vanzi, the head of the HERO Südtirol Dolomites Organising Committee, says, ‘A guide can show bikers pockets of nature and trails off the beaten track across the region as well as imparting useful techniques and race strategies.’

The HERO SUMMER 2020 tour will kick off from Selva Val Gardena, and bikers can stay in one of the specialized Bike Hotels in the stunning Alpine village of Arabba. The village is located right at the center of the Sella Group circuit. The HERO SUMMER 2020 also includes luggage transport from the Selva hotel to Arabba and back, respectively on Friday and Saturday afternoon. Bikers will not have to worry about a thing and will find their luggage in their hotel in Val Gardena.
