Alta Badia (Corvara), a real cycling paradise, the ideal starting point to reach the roads and passes that have forged the history of cycling. The routes of the Giro d’Italia and the Maratona dles Dolomites – Enel, await you and your bike as you climb true road racing icons such as the Passo Pordoi, Passo Giau or the Passo Fedaia.
The area is stooped in tradition cyclists flock to the area all summer long to take on the abundance of climbs. A favourite for many riders is a route called the Sella Ronda which takes in , Passo Gardena , Campalongo , Pordoi and Passo Sella a 56km route (1780m elevation) that will breathtaking views that will will be etched in your memory for ever.
A favourite of mine is to ride over to the famous ski town of Cortina via the Passo Giau which rises up to 22236m , with the reward of a great cafe waiting for you at the top. We would then drop down the other side for lunch in Cortina and then retrace our steps therefor taking in both sides on the day.
