100 Km

Partenza ore 6.30 – 8.30

Registration: 6:30 to 8:30

Departure: 6:30 to 8:30

Voluntary contribution of participation: min. 15 euros.

 

BAM100! is a journey of 100 km, is a way to discover the hidden corners of our country, to understand that you can also ride in the heart of Veneto away from roads.

It starts from Noale and, passing close to Montebelluna, we ride towards Asolo, where there will be the gourmet break at Porchetta a Manetta, with bread, olive oil, wine and of course pork.

Then we move on through the hills of Asolo, to the cycling area of the Ezzelini, the Muson dei Sassi and Ostiglia, then conclude with other original variations.

 

The route is mostly on dirt roads, it is also viable with a racing bike, except in some places, but possibly we recommend sturdy tires, such as ciclocross or gravel. The mountain bike is a great choice.

The altitude difference is very little, practically there is just one steep climb before the break at Asolo: hold on!!

The helmet is mandatory and we strongly advice the bell: on the bike roads we will cross many pedestrians and it is good to give them the right of way, announce our arrival and say hello!

There are crossings which are on roads open to traffic: respect the traffic rules and be careful. BAM! is not a race.

When you return, at the village, pasta party and beer.

Dislivello 500D+

The ride will pass through:

– Sile Sources (Sorgenti)

– Asolo (Porchetta a Manetta (pork), the perfect gourmet break!)

– Cycle Ezzelini

– Cycle of Muson Sassi

– Castelfranco Veneto

– Cycle Ostiglia

Partenza ore 6.30 – 8.30

Registration: 6:30 to 8:30

Departure: 6:30 to 8:30

Voluntary contribution of participation: min. 15 euros.

 

BAM150! is a discovery.

hidden roads, single track along the canals, paths through the vineyards and along the Piave.

Even those who know the area well, will be surprised.

The route is not for everyone: many kilometers and about 1,500 in altitude, with many ups and downs before arriving in Asolo.

A perfect workout for those who prepare randonnées or ultra such as the Tuscany or the Veneto trail.

In Valdobbiadene there will be the first break, offered by the City of Valdobbiadene: so, although it will be morning, guests can cool off with a prosecco.

 

The path is almost all on dirt roads: the ideal bicycle is a gravel bike or a mountain bike, but you can also use a racing bike, although we recommend sturdy covers.

 

BAM150! It is not a race. Take time to enjoy the scenery and enjoy the gourmet breaks.

 

Attention to paths which cross roads open to traffic, especially the bridge before and after Valdobbiadene. On the cycling roads give the right of way to the pedestrians.
