Thanks to Velo Veneto

Every sponsor of this site gets a note of thanks and it’s now time to say thanks to travel company Velo Veneto who are here for May. The company offers a range of trips to Italy and beyond with a focus on the Dolomites.

Next week I’m planing to write a piece with tips for viewing a mountain stage in a grand tour because it’s not as obvious as you think, there’s closed roads, picking the right spot and more to think about. One way to avoid all this is to trust an expert and the guys at Velo Veneto run organised trips to the Giro so you can watch the race as part of a tour.

As well as riding, there’s plenty of time to enjoy the other things Italy can offer, from wine and grappa tasting to the local food. They offer everything from riding and touring in the Veneto region – home to many pros as well as the legendary Monte Grappa – to the chance to race, take part in Gran Fondos in the mountains and more. You’ll find more online at

If you’re a new or infrequent reader, yes this is an advertorial piece. It’s a custom that all sponsors get a public note of thanks. Rather than just renting some pixels on screen, their support makes the site happen so I’m only too happy to get a page explain what they’re about. Velo Veneto are here for May and the Giro but I’m planning to use the funding to research for the Tour de France stage previews.

As well as the web, you can also follow their Twitter and Instagram accounts.

  1. You should make the Velo Veneto image at the top of the page link to their website. I got to the site through the link further in the article, but first attempted simply clicking on the picture first and others may do the same.

  2. Always pleased to acknowledge and thank the input of sponsors who help make INRNGs site so enjoyable.
    Many thanks to all those concerned.

  3. BRAVO to VeloVeneto! Back when we began CycleItalia fifteen years ago we had clients ask us about producing cycling camps in the Veneto region. Our response was “Some fine operations were already doing just that, why invade “their” territory? There’s plenty of Italy for everyone.”
    All these years later it’s great to see they’re still going strong. Buon lavoro!
    PS-we find those who don’t like grappa most often have never tasted a well-made one. There’s a lot of rotgut out there used for caffe corretto, which kills the nasty taste..but a good single-grape grappa from a good maker (Veneto has plenty, though we’re partial to Piedmont) can be a wonderful thing.

    • Grazie, Larry! You’re right, a good grappa is quite good. But, some people just don’t like it. For them, we highly recommend Prosecco. There’s nothing quite like sipping a cool glass of Cartizze to get you ready for dinner on a warm Italian evening.

      Ci vediamo!
