Lightweight Italy - April 2018

Hey guys,
my name is Daniel, 36yo, love meeting & riding with warmshowerers around the globe!

Light! Just 5-6kg added onto my racing bike - see profile pic - because climbing is what I enjoy the most. 

When & where:
3-4 weeks starting in Naples on Friday, April 6. The rest is tbd. One idea would be Amalfi coast - Caserta - Parco Regionale del Matese - Parco Nazionale D'Abruzzo Lazio e Molise - Ente Parco Naturale Regionale Sirente Velino - Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga - Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini - EITHER Parco del Monte Cucco OR Parco Naturale Regionale Gola della Rossa e di Frasassi - Monte Carpegna - San Marino - Parco Nazionale Foreste Casentinesi - Passo della Futa - Bologna - Modena - Lake Garda - San Valentino - Monte Bondone - Passo Manghen - Canazei - Passo Sella - maybe Passo Gardena to Corvara & Passo delle Erbe (Würzjoch) if open already - Brenner - Innsbruck - Munich - ???

Would you like to join for the whole trip? Or even just for a day if you live near that route? Just email me: (Spanish/German/Polish, Dutch when drunk.)

PS - similar tours in the past: 2015 NL-CR2017 HU-NL

Sounds like a great trip. You

Sounds like a great trip. You'll love the Dolomites. After that, you'll be close to Grossglockner (Austrian High Road) which is also truly spectacular. Touch and go whether it will be open by then though! Good luck!

Bella Italia

Wow dude! Sounds good and great youtube videos :-) I will be training in the Krkonose hills/mountains in April because I have my own Giro d'Italia but anyway good luck and let me know if you ever want to ride the Czech hills and mountains ;-) (what is it with our Dutch cyclists loving the hills and mountains so much? :-D

Thanks, guys!

Thanks, guys!

Actually I've checked already, and Grossglockner only opens in early May, so to be on the safe side I'll probably cross the Alps through the lowest pass of them all: Brenner.

And I'd love to explore Czechia one day! We call those mountains Karkonosze on the Polish side, and they are quite renowned for their beauty indeed!
