The Maratona dles Dolomites is one of the world’s premier mass-participation rides, taking in the stunning scenery of the Italian mountain range that lends the event its name.

Every year, a lucky group of Cycling Weekly readers take part in the ride.

In this video you can get a flavour of the ride and hear first-hand experiences from those that took part.

Also included is an interview with Tour de France legend Miguel Indurain, who rode in this year’s event.

Thanks to Jon Derricott and Ian Parr for shooting the video and organising places at the Maratona for Cycling Weekly readers.
