Summer vibes from the Italian Dolomites in a video from 2019 when Canadian legends Geoff Gulevich, Richie Schley and Darren Berrecloth teamed up to explore these unique mountains in the heath of the Alps.

A great week of riding, exploring and laughing in perfect weather and truly epic views!


Thanks to dolomitisuperski.com we had the ‘Dolomiti Super Summer’ passes to access 100 lifts over 12 valleys for a ridiculous 400 km of trails, that makes of The Dolomites one of the largest bike destination in the world. If not the largest. Bucket list worthy.


bigquotesThe dolomites are a place that seems somewhat surreal, the mountains are insanely beautiful and unique, the culture and locals are on point. The riding there is actually improving greatly year by year and already has some of the best terrain and trails I’ve ridden in Europe. Absolutely love the place and can’t wait to go back!Darren Berrecloth


bigquotesThe Dolomites for me are one of the most interesting mountain ranges I have played in. With the high Alpine looking like a desert and the lifts taking you anywhere you can imagine, its an outdoor mountain fantasy. Not too mention the Italian cuisine mixed in to the whole recipe.Richie Schley


bigquotesI am in love with the diverse terrain, beautiful views and the accessibility the Dolomites has to offer. You could ride there for twenty years and still discover new areas to ride and hike. Can't wait to go back!Geoff Gulevich

For those who can travel there, the season 2020 has started this week and all the lifts are open.

 Got to ride there last summer. Did a 50+ mile day riding around the Sellaronda formation with copious chairlift usage. I wouldn't say the terrain lends itself to great mountain bike trails, but the experience was awesome and the scenery is truly stunning. There are random "bike parks" that are really just one or two short, built-up trails, but there's also the occasional trail that's been an EWS stage.

 The sella ronda tour is a marathon race that you can ride with family. 50 km of gravel roads. It's truly plenti of trails that have more action than that.

 @aledilullophotography: Love Sella Ronda for the views and the Vibe. Nothing comes close! I can't wait to get there on MTB. For a more "bike-park" experience - Livigno might be a better choice though. I keep fingers crossed so the virus situation gets resolver soon and we can all travel again!
