Prosecco Road (With Strada dei 100 giorni)
A fantastic and sunny tour through the Treviso province, surrounded by history, culture and famous wine and food productions of Made In Italy.
Video starts from Valdobbiadene a wine growing area. Just below the Alpine-Dolomite areas of Veneto. The Conegliano Valdobbiadene area is the home of the best Prosecco production.
The first climb that we find is after only a kilometer.
Combai climb, 6.5 Km long, Max Slope: 8.4%.
After that, we pass through Follina, and then to Cison di Valmarino, where we pass near Castelbrando that was originally built in the Roman age as a defensive fortress. During World War I, the castle was invaded by Imperial Austrian forces and used as a military hospital. In 1997 CastelBrando was converted it into a hotel and museum.
About a kilometr after the castle, we start The San Boldo Pass that has five tunnels blasted into the rock with hairpin turns or loops, and six bridges.
The Austro-Hungarian army accomplished it from February to June 1918 as part of its World War I logistical efforts. The road to supply the Piave front was built in only three months. Due to its short construction period, it is nicknamed the "Road of 100 Days." Prisoners of war, the elderly, women, and children of the local population were pressed into service to build it.
Passo San Boldo is 6.1 Km long, with an elevation of 449 Mtrs and a Max Slope 11.2%.
Here, our Maurizio won a time trial stage when he was pro cyclist.
Then we arrive to San Antonio Tortal and Pranolz.
Video ends to Castion.

This was the first video I rode from my first order. It's a wonderfully varied, scenic and, at times, demanding ride. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The video quality is very high and stood up to being screened on a large TV screen in front of our trainers. I'm looking forward to riding it again and my wife is keen to ride it for the first time having heard me praising it after my first ride.
