The Prosecco Cycling Classic takes place in the pre-alpi north of Treviso amongst the vineyards that produce the delicious Prosecco sparkling wine.
The terrain is perfectly suited for an end of season event providing a realisitc challenge for the time of year. Two route options are offered, 128km (2100m of climbing) and 68km (980m of climbing). The full route offers some great scenery as it winds and undulates its way through the winelands around Valdobbiadene.
The shorter route provides an option for riders who fancy bringing their bikes but don't fancy attempting the full distance.
The Prosecco Cycling Classic is a perfect end of season event to combine great riding and with a social twist. The whole event is geared around a celebration of this delightful sparkling wine.
From the gltizy start in the piazza at the centre of the Prosecco wine growing area to complimentary food and of course Prosecco whilst relaxing in the piazza on completion of the event.
We are based in the beautiful town of Follina historic town away only 10 minutes by var from Valdobbiadene for the weekend.
It has all the character and architectural charm you would expect of Italy without the hoards of tourists. There are numerous shady piazzas with bars to sit outside and enjoy a glass of Prosecco. The winding streets and numerous canals that dissect the town make it a beautiful place to relax and explore.
For the non-cyclist there is still plenty to do.
Shopping in the local outlet of wool and silk wine tasting and many alternative activity can do during this week end in proseccoland.
Special offer for bikers
