AUGUSTOUR (Italian Green Road Award 2015) is a cycling holiday event in northern Italy and takes place at the end of September: you will ride with a guided group through the beautiful region of South Tyrol and Trentino, starting on Passo Resia and ending after 3 days in Trento.

During the 3 stages all partecipants of the AUGUSTOUR will cross, sitting on a their e-bikes, 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, ride in a guided group, with no stress! Start is on Passo Resia, at the boarder ITA/AUT, the other stage towns are Merano, Bolzano and Trento. The next edition of the AUGUSTOUR will take place between September, 16th to 19th, 2021

                                                       

During the 3-day ride of AUGUSTOUR we offer some special refreshment points with local goodies. Thevisit of a local winery and an exklusive dinner (“Notte Verde”) in Rovereto will be other highlights.

The very special thing in the AUGUSTOUR is the new collaboration with FAI, the Fondo Ambiente Italiano, a private non-profit organisation with 60,000 members. Its purpose is to protect elements of Italy’s physical heritage which might otherwise be lost. During the 3 stages of the AUGUSTOUR  we make some cultural stops, so we visit a beautiful castle along our bike route. We will see also of the center of  Merano, Bolzano and Trento with his Duomo and the unforgettable Piazza.
