SHREDLY Adventures: Debby Goes to Italy
Posted on August 10 2023
In June 2023, I traveled to the Italian Dolomites, in the Val di Fassa region, to mountain bike. I went with H&I Adventures which is a company from Scotland. This was my 5th MTB trip with them.
The riding days were long but mostly lift-served on the uphills. The natural trails were steep, rocky, and gravelly, with lots of loose baby head rubble. It was hard but fun! We also rode in bike parks with steep bermed corners, one after the other, which made them feel endless. They came fast and furious and my vision had to be spot on to ride them properly.
The highlight of the trip was riding the Sellaronda route around a huge mountain. There was climbing on those days but also lift rides. It took two days to ride the route and we spent the night in one of the oldest Refugio of Italy.
I wore my SHREDLY Limitless Shorts with the stretch waistband and was super comfortable all of the 6-8 hour riding days. I received many compliments on my shorts. They are popular in Europe but hard to come by. Let’s help our Euro friends by stuffing our suitcases with SHREDLY shorts and gear and bringing it over the pond. Who’s in?
The whole adventure was well-planned and fun. Thanks to SHREDLY for the comfortable shorts and H&I for an epic adventure!
