Veloce Club Dolomites is Q36.5’s official cycling club. Based in the Dolomites of southern Tirol, known for its superior cycling terrain, with us you will experience extraordinary rides in one of the most beautiful and challenging areas of Italy. The club is managed by former professional rider Sabrina Emmasi and offers guided training tours led by ex pros, such as Mario Kummer (Gold Medal winner in TTT at the 1988 Seoul Olympics). Mario has years of experience in professional cycling including being Manager and Director Sportiv for professional teams. We have multi-lingual professional guides for riders of all levels and offer tours not only in our region of northern Italy but also in other select areas of Italy known for their varied cycling landscape and their fine cuisine. Veloce Club Dolomites is also expanding their offerings to include guided tours in other well known cycling paradises around the world.
We have devised an action packed 6-day trip in May with the focal point being this year’s Giro d’Italia. Training will take place on the same roads as the Giro giving you the opportunity to watch the peloton up close. Thanks to the Q36.5 camper, which will be our base during the stages of the Giro, you can have a post-ride shower and relax at our side of the road grill party while watching the stage finish on TV – thus getting the full Giro experience as well as having great days of cycling.
The July trip is an opportunity to discover the Dolomites, especially the less known areas, including breathtaking and challenging passes which are still well kept insider secrets. A relaxed visit to a local vineyard for a wine tasting event and a special dinner highlighting the local cusine are also on the plan.
During the September training camp we will ride the Stelvio. Approaching it from two different sides, we will not only reach the Swiss border but will also ride up all the world-renowned hairpin turns. This Stelvio experience is made even more exclusive as it has been planned when the road is officially closed off to car traffic. Imagine what an amazing experience that will be!
With the same meticulous and obsessive passion we put into making our cycling clothing, Q36.5’s Veloce Club Dolomites strives to offer you a unique experience combining solid training runs with relaxing dinners and wine tastings as well as enjoying the local regional specialities and sights. Our program is rounded out by meeting your individual needs: including an expert bike fitting, massages after a long ride and mechanical assistance is always available during our runs. Of course, we will pay special attention to the wishes of each of our participants.
