Is it possible to mountain bike the Italian Dolomites in April?
I'll be in Italy in mid-late April for my honeymoon and would love to hit the Dolomites but I'm concerned it might still be too cold/snowy. Does anyone have any experience riding there at this time of year? Thanks.
Yup - Bolzano, Brixen and Bruneck have lots of valley floor riding and are pretty good at that time of the year although alpine doesn't generally clear till late May/June. Vinschgau valley trails are pretty good too at that time since they're even sunnier (look for information about mountain - biking in Latsch). These are both in the South Tyrol SudTirol region on the western edge of the Dolomites.

Bike's hmmm nice
Finale Ligure is very good round that time. Sea, sun, Italian style and very good riding. Tours and uplifts/shuttles are both superb. Weather will be very ridable for sure around that time. Have a late april- beginning of may trip planned for next. Have been there for 5 trips of 2 weeks already (riding and rock climbing with the family). Always good to be back.
