The Ortler Bicycle Marathon is an event organized each year by passionate bikers for the first weekend in June in the Venosta Valley, located in the western part of the province of South Tyrol, Italy, an area well-known for bicycle touring.  There are two race routes (“Marathon” and “Classic”), both taking the bikers through beautiful mountain villages, and past a monastery, castles, and mountain lakes with a start and finish at the small medieval city of Glorenza.
