After the successful trips to The French and Swiss Alps - 2006 - The Pyrenees - 2007 - and the Hautes Alpes - 2008 - BBOT (Bewdley Bikers on Tour) decided that 2009 would see them in the Dolomites and Livigno. Rather than post a long trip report, Kyle who is one of the BBOT riders and an expert in website design, decided that we should have our own website and that all our trips should be available on the site. Hence the slight delay in bringing this report to you as the final details were only finished this week
You can find the report here:
as well as the reports for the other trips.
You'll find a lot of useful information - roads to ride, passes to cross, hotels worth staying in, hotels to avoid, and lots and lots of photos - over 300 alone for the 2009 trip.
Just to whet your appetite here are some photos:
