Be a hero – bike for a good cause!
Is it the special way the sun shines? The stark, vertical walls of rock – massive and bizarrely rugged? Is it the amazing curved mountain pass roads that are set into the landscape? Is it the hospitality of the people, the alpine way of life, along with Italian joie de vivre? All these special features, and many more, make up the Dolomites mountain range in northeastern Italy. The Dolomites are one of the most popular touring destinations for cyclists from all over the world. This road bike tour is for all Dolomite fans and those who want to become one!
This tour is done in cooperation with the RIDE 4 HELP Association e.V. (based in Verden, Germany). Since 2005, RIDE 4 HELP e.V. cycling enthusiasts have been biking famous alpine stages to raise money for a good cause and to-date have raised nearly € 300,000.
One of the main charities RIDE 4 HELP e.V. supports is the training of assistance dogs (Dogs for Handicaps e.V. in Germany, Guide Dogs in the UK, Handichiens in France). These specially trained dogs enable people with disabilities to be self-reliant and to enjoy a better quality of life.
RIDE 4 HELP e.V. also supports charities that are dedicated to children, such as SOS CHILDREN'S VILLAGE e.V.
The main aim of this tour is for participants to encourage individuals and/or companies to reward their sporting efforts with a donation.
