Giro d’Italia visits DCT in Dolomites

The Sella Ronda is one of the great rides in Italy and it was no surprise to see the Giro racing around it towards Corvara this week. The helicopter shots showed the fabulous Dolomites in all their glory. DCT will be there in August taking our riders over the same glorious rides. We will have the advantage of less bikes and cars on the roads so we get to admire the riding and the view without the circus that accompanies a Grand Tour!Photo time

 

How good is riding in France?

Having just spent a few months riding around France (and Italy) I am again reminded of how much cycling is part of the culture of these countries. As a cyclist I am surprised and happy at how good the cars are at giving me a wide berth. I am also amazed that the French cyclists expect this and will often ride two abreast on relatively narrow roads and as cars approach behind them there is no honking of horns!

Diamond Cycle Tours

Bespoke Tours

Diamond Cycle Tours is a boutique tour operator and tours are tailored to cater for what our riders want. But sometimes we are asked to set up very specific tours. We are planning one at the moment for 2015. In that case it is for a group on a tour through the Alps in France. The glue for that tour is a significant birthday for a rider who has done previous tours with us and wants a special one for his friends to join him on. Thanks for the vote Tim.
