The Veneto Trail is an unsupported bikepacking adventure through the region of Veneto, in Italy. The 2020th will be its 6th edition.PRESS RELEASE: VENETO TRAIL 2020
The Dolomites are undoubtedly one of the most spectacular areas of the Alps, already incredibly breathtaking on their own but it is these jagged limestone mountains that add the icing to the cake. Unbelievably beautiful and rocky mountaintops are sparkled along the route, paired with tremendous views and fascinating trails that will probably stay in your mind forever. The biggest reason to participate in the Veneto Trail is the carefully chosen route; Andrea, the organizer, puts all the love he can into setting up a fabulously mind-blowing loop touching the Italian and Austrian regions of the Dolomites. All pretty mountain-bike'esque, but for the hard-ones probably still enjoyable with a monstercross dropbar-bike if needed – simply adjust your gearing for the steep ascents.
A special point of note is the fact that no Veneto Trail route is the same from one year to the next. This is a fantastic reason to return, as you'll be sure to ride new trails and witness mind-blowing scenery. So if you’ve already done it in the last 5 years or have never done it in your life and can’t stop thinking about it, come and ride with us in 2020. We guarantee it will be as awesome as ever with a route full of adventure.
A mix of doubletrack gravel roads, rocky sections and rooty singletrack with the least amount of tarmac provides everything that the average cyclists require for the trip of a lifetime – not to mention the marvellous views you’ll be facing.DETAILS
During the event you'll ride dirt roads, trails and secondary paved roads from the Po valley to the Dolomites passing trough a various and fascinating landscape. The event starts and ends in Cittadella, it's non-competitive and there's no time limit. It's just a challenge against yourself and your limits. Every participant will be unsupported during the adventure, deciding how many km doing a day and where and when to eat and sleep. No external help allowed.
