Day 01



On September 2nd 2013, the adidas Journeys team met in the beautiful Northern Italian city of Bolzano, the capital of the Südtirol region. This would be the first leg of their tour through the Dolomites, a 93.3 km ride that proved to be a good test of the endurance they would need for the rest of their journey.

The Mendola Pass provides breath taking vantage points of the valleys below the many wine vineyards, but to see them the team had to ride up a steep incline for roughly an hour before enjoying an exciting downhill passage.

Continuing along the route they made it to Lake Caldaro, the warmest lake in the Alps, and the perfect spot to take a dip during the warm mountain summers.
