The Marmolada, known throughout the world as the highest mountain in the Dolomites, and Falcade, a charming village characterized by sweeping panoramic views, are two well-known tourist resorts for winter sports that for some years have specialized in bike tourism.
They both have spectacular routes, over 400 km of mountain trails, dirt roads and bike paths, Bike Friendly accommodations renowned for the particular reception given to cyclists with many amenities designed specifically for their needs and their comfort, numerous dining spots and rentals that provide mechanical assistance for small repairs.
In the Falcade-San Pellegrino Pass area lift facilities are a great help for those who want to save some energy. There really is everything you could want for a holiday on two wheels.
This demanding tour crosses the mountainous chain of the Cime dAuta peaks and the saddle of Forca Rossa, an ambitious pass populated by herds of ibex, Canale d’Agordo, birthplace of Pope Luciani, Rocca Pietore with the marvellous Serrai di Sottoguda and Malga Ciapela where the cable cars that “fly”to the top of the Marmolada start.
