Bicycling on the roads of the Dolomites!
For over 30 years, over nine thousand cyclists race on the roads of the Dolomites the first Sunday in July. There are three itineraries that cross the fabulous Val Badia and Alpine valleys touched by the most famous Italian amateur race. Some take the shorter route, of the famous Tour of the 4 Passes or Sellaronda, 55 km long and with a 1780 m altitude change through the Campolongo, Pordoi, Sella, and Gardena Passes. Other take the medium-length route, which is 106 km with an altitude change of 3090 m and, in addition to the previous route, the Campolongo, Giau, and Falzarego climbs. And finally, there is the “long” route, the true marathon of 138 km and an altitude change of 4190 m. However, it will be tough for everyone because you need to pedal steadily on the peaks that made the history of the Giro d’Italia, the dream of every amateur cyclist.
