is a cycling holiday event in the beautiful South Tyrol and Trentino region, northern Italy. During three days in the month of June all partecipants will cross, sitting on a bike, along a part of the marvellous – and excellent cycling route, called Via Claudia Augusta, the ancient cultural and trade passage of the Roman Empire. Amusement and pleasure to ride along the event’s track are the main purposes of it all, standing right in the foreground. All cyclists follow their own rhythm, do not ride in a group and you can stop where they feel like, with no stress! During the day use the special AUGUSTOUR- refreshment points with local goodies. You can take also advantage of our luggage transport and, if you decide not to come with your personal bike, use our bike renting service.
