You'll meet your guides at the train station in the lively medieval town of Bassano del Grappa, famed for its covered wooden bridge designed by the Renaissance architect, Andrea Palladio. From here you'll take a 40-minute private shuttle to the stunning Asiago Plateau, perched at an altitude of 3,281 feet (1,000 meters). This pristine natural haven is a year-round hotspot for a variety of outdoor pursuits, including cross-country skiing in winter and hiking, mountaineering, and biking in summer. After a delicious lunch featuring local dishes, your guides will fit you to your Trek Checkpoint gravel bike before setting off on a scenic ride along the path of a former railway. You’ll meander between old stations, historical sites, and natural landscapes. The route largely winds through the woods where you’ll encounter a few British cemeteries with graves from World War I. You’ll then pass by “Vaca Mora,” the ancient steam locomotive named the “black cow” in the local dialect which once made its way from the plains to Asiago until 1955. Our day concludes at the hotel where you can relax, unpack, and gear up for our first night's dinner and social hour at the hotel, where your guides will introduce you to the excitement that lies ahead.

With centuries-old cheese-making traditions, here cheese graces the table daily and is practically a way of life. Reaching the summit at Cima Ekar, we'll pause for lunch at a local malga, relishing splendid views over the village of Asiago and savoring local delicacies, including the most authentic Asiago cheese. Completing the loop, we'll ride past the majestic Military Shrine, a World War I memorial housing the graves of approximately 54,000 soldiers.

The unpaved surfaces on our Asiago to the Dolomites Gravel bike tour are rated as Intermediate. Approximately 60% of the riding is unpaved. You can expect primarily well-maintained, wide forested dirt roads with sparse to moderate amounts of gravel. At times, there may be sections that have deeper or chunky gravel. This trip takes place in the Asiago Plateau (Italian Pre-Alps) and in the southern part of the Dolomites. The ride distances are relatively short because the terrain is hilly to mountainous. You will encounter a mixture of rolling hills, short steep hills and long gradual climbs throughout the trip. Since the gravel is primarily on mule tracks and forested roads, the support van cannot always follow, but will be posted up at strategic points along the route. Our Asiago to the Dolomites Gravel bike tour is best suited for Type 3 and 4 Riders who have experience riding gravel roads and are accustomed to mountainous terrain. If you have gravel experience but are concerned about your physical ability to conquer the mileage and elevation, you may want to try our Domane+ electric-assist bike option.
On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. Some non-riding options during on our Asiago to the Dolomites Gravel bike tour are:
  • Hiking in Asiago and in San Martino di Castrozza
  • Visiting the Military Shrine and other World War I sites
  • Skating on the ice rink (open all year round)
  • Go shopping the chic boutique stores in Asiago
  • Visiting the Astronomical Observatory in Asiago
  • Golfing in the Asiago Golf Club located in an idyllic setting
  • Touring a cheese factory in Asiago

See itinerary for specific daily ride distances and elevation options. This is a Signature Gravel trip. Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. On our gravel cycling vacations, Trek Travel seeks to find well maintained, non-technical gravel roads and bike paths; unmaintained roads and roads with ruts or deep or chunky gravel are avoided as much as possible. However, gravel roads are dynamic by nature. Road surfaces change throughout the year depending on maintenance (grading, adding new gravel) and weather, particularly rain. Our guides will be constantly monitoring road conditions and may change the routes as needed to provide the best possible riding experience. In addition, as with all of our trips, at times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

Planning For Your Trip

In July the average daily high temperature is around 72°F (22°C) and low is 56°F (13°C), with temperatures rarely dropping below 53°F (11°C) at night. July is also the sunniest month of the year, with an average of 200 hours of sunshine per month. Summer storms are more frequent in August. Weather can change drastically very fast in the mountains, so make sure to pack layers and don't forget your rain gear, just in case. Packing List

Before and After Your Trip


Before: Bassano del Grappa

One of the most charming towns in the Veneto region of Italy, Bassano del Grappa is a hidden gem rich in history, culture, and art—a unique destination for savvy travelers and adventurers. Located just one hour from Venice, nestled at the Alpine foothills, or Prealpi in Italian, it is the charming old town that attracts tourists from all over the world to this relaxed center. The town center unfolds around three main squares, surrounded by pedestrian streets dotted with shops, bars, and historical architectural details. The main attraction is the Ponte Vecchio, or old bridge of Bassano, which spans the river Brenta and bears the signature of Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio. Many shops and bars surround the bridge, including Italy's oldest distillery dating back to the 18th century and still serving its customers. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:


After: Venice, Italy

Whether you’ve never been to Venice or have been there 20 times, there’s always something new to discover. Indeed, even the most seasoned visitors get lost in the city’s labyrinthine network of islands, bridges, pedestrian alleys, and canals. And therein lies the beauty of the destination: afternoons spent wandering from palace to piazza, exploring the small art museums, shopping the stalls that line the streets, and encountering a fresh side of Venice, a fascinating amalgamation of influences—Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, and Italian—every time you round a corner. The UNESCO World Heritage site comprises the city of Venice and its lagoon situated in the Veneto Region of northeast Italy. Founded in the fifth century and spread over 118 small islands, Venice became a major maritime power in the 10th century. The whole city is an extraordinary architectural masterpiece in which even the smallest building contains works by some of the world’s greatest artists. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
