Cycle the Dolomites with the Regional Experts 

vernon bike guide dolomites



We do not offer tours world-wide, or even Italy-wide; we focus our passion and energies on creating regional tours that allow our guests to truly experience all aspects - the terrain, the rides, the food, the wine, the culture - of the Dolomites, one of the most unique and spectacular areas of Italy.

We offer more Dolomites based itineraries than any other bike tour company, so cyclists of all levels will find an adventure perfect for them. Plan your Dolomites adventure with the team of regional experts, recreational programmer Vernon McClure and culinary and wine programmer Kathy Bechtel.

Vernon has led professional cycling guide training and designed the Dolomites itineraries for large multinational cycling tour providers, who relied upon his regional expertise and extensive program design and risk management training to enhance their Italy programs. We'd love the opportunity to create a program designed just for you!

Vernon was recently recognized by Dream of Italy as one of "Italy's Best Local Tour Guides", the only solo bike, hike, and ski guide so honored.

"Aptly called "the MacGyver of active vacations" by travel specialist Madeline Jhawar from Italy Beyone the Obvious, Vernon is the perfect guide if you aim to explore the Veneto region or the nearby Dolomite mountain range by bike, on foot, with skis, or hanging off a sheer rock face."

"The program was very high quality, thoroughly considered start to finish. Kathy and Vernon are so personable, knowledgeable and capable. We look forward to doing another tour with them in the near future!" - CB, South Shore
