Re: Looking for a riding partner

@Azoto
Can you comment on, or guess at the % of on vs off road on each individual leg of the Italian TET.
Or if you have already done this, provide a link to this information?
This would be so helpfull

I want to do legs 1 to 4 in a few weeks and want offroad (like all of us). Will I find it?
Thanks

i think the higher alpine passes are still closed
Do you have any source of info about passes?
I am planning to leave mid June to do the western part of the Italy TET and would be good to know this.
Thanks
