Tour of East Dolomites

This tour was scheduled for 2021 but due to Covid restrictions on travel it did not happen and so is deferred to perhaps 2022.

Route Overview

Great work on the route planning by Hamish & Sparky; I thought some of the climbing stats looked a bit overstated as is often the case with Garmin.

So, I have done two revisions:

  1. Rick standard eyeball / estimate just looking at the profile
  2. Downloaded the GPX from Garmin and Uploaded it to Ride with GPS

Based on that I get the two additional columns of climb data below:

Each technique gave similar outcomes and I’m sure they represent a fairly accurate figure.

Based on that I think we could combine days 2 & 3 into one big day … it would be day 2 so we’d all be fresh … but it would be a strong day but the following day is pretty manageable to recover. That would get you to an 8 day tour …
