Transalp Rando

Discover the 1200 Km.

From Verona you cycle towards Lake Garda, continue towards Trento and Bolzano along the Adige River, then ascend eastwards along the Isarco River and then enter the Pusteria Valley. At Villabassa you have cycled the first 300 km. You continue towards Austria first along the Drava River Valley and then along the Gail River Valley.

At Tarvisio you turn east towards Slovenia along the Sava River Valley. After skirting the beautiful Lake Bled, you arrive in Ljubljana, the Slovenian capital; here you turn the 600-kilometre mark.

On the way back, you pedal westwards, pass through Tarvisio and Friuli Venezia Giulia, cross the Passo Monte Croce Carnico and return to Austria. The route takes you again along the enchanting Gail River Valley and then into the Puster Valley. Back to Villabassa for the 900-kilometre passage, then from Dobbiaco up to Cimabanche, surrounded by the most beautiful and famous peaks of the Dolomites. You pass through Cortina d’Ampezzo, and descend along the Piave Valley. You skirt the Venetian Pre-Alps, passing through Belluno, Feltre and Bassano del Grappa before the last stretch on the plains.

After skirting the Vicenza and Verona Pre-Alps here we are for the grand finale in Verona: the great feat is over!

Randonnées are non-competitive cycling sporting events; they require training and are endurance tests. The challenge, however, is with oneself; the other cyclists are fellow adventurers. Randonneurs are stray souls, but friendship and helping those in difficulty are values shared by all. You will never be alone and, in case of need, someone will lend a hand. Very often two or more friends participate together to support each other during the venture, which is always a good test of endurance.

Randonnées take place in open traffic. The cyclist is expected to ride autonomously, however, there are refreshments at predefined locations.

As far as duration is concerned, there are minimum and maximum times. The 1200 km route must be completed in 90 or 110 hours, the 600 km route in 40 hours.

There are many women who participate and love this type of event. To give value to their presence, which is often overlooked, we planned to make the event jersey in a women’s version as well as in the classic unisex form, with narrow hips, more suitable for men.

The route is mostly on asphalt, but there are also several sections on gravel roads with a smooth, well-pedalled surface. We recommend gravel or racing bikes with appropriate tyres. We make sure that you can ride safely, which is why we choose cycle paths or roads with little traffic. Our priority is to make cycling safe so that you can fully enjoy the scenery and the strenuous adventure.

Approximately every 75 to 100 km there is a checkpoint that is also a refreshment point and can provide food and water. We will use compostable crockery. From 300 km onwards, some dormitories are planned.

Obviously everyone can organise themselves as they see fit, but we recommend putting spare parts in the bags that will be provided. Two luggage transport services are provided in the dormitories of Villabassa and Tarvisio/Fusine in Valromana. Luggage will be brought back to Verona in good time for the first arrivals.

We appreciate solo randonneurs and therefore registration with a sports association is not required. In order to participate, you will need a medical certificate for stress testing. It will also be necessary to be in possession of appropriate personal liability insurance.
