Maratona dles Dolomites

While any large gathering of cyclists is something to rejoice, the sheer numbers involved can create a negative environmental impact. So it’s reassuring to see one of the world’s largest cyclosportives – the Maratona dles Dolomites – reducing its carbon footprint to the very minimum.

The organisers – whose route includes part of a UNESCO worldwide heritage site – have implemented a range of measures. They range from the choice of raw materials and design of products involved, to the LPG-fuelled shuttle buses employed designed to ferry participants and cut down emissions form associated traffic.
