THE HUFFINGTON POST – Dolomite Biking: Are You Experienced? by Harmon Leon
I'm biking behind Andreas: my amiable guide, hero, and mentor. (Not only does he possess a wry wit but also uncanny Dolomite knowledge.) On skinny-wheeled, hyper-light road bikes we are executing the Loop of Cristallo (Giro del Cristallo).
It's a fairly easy 40km ride with 12% grades at 2000-meter mountain passes. Keeping a steady pace, the rain spits as we pass trucks on the roadway.
