The Dolomites Bike Day on Alta Badia

2 MINUTES READ

The first edition of a unique event

Three mountain passes, three provinces and three Ladin valleys come together for a unique event: the Dolomites Bike Day. This non-competitive cycling event will be held for the first time on Sunday 18th June, on the Campolongo, Falzarego and Valparola mountain passes, all of which will be closed to traffic for the occasion. More two-wheeled events are organised for the following two weekends: on 25th June, the traditional Sellaronda Bike Day and on 2nd July the Maratona dles Dolomites will take place. Cycling enthusiasts will be able to take part in this non-competitive, free event to be held on the outskirts of the Puez-Odle and Fanes-Sennes-Braies Natural Parks, surrounded by the Dolomites a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Alta Badia – The Dolomites Bike Day

Cyclists will wind their way around the circuit which leaves from Alta Badia and reaches Arabba and the Livinallongo valley, crossing the Campolongo Pass, before then moving on to the Falzarego Pass and Valparola Pass and arriving into the villages of La Villa and Corvara, completing the route. The route, which will be closed to traffic from 10am until 3pm, is 51km long and, overall, has a 1.290m difference in altitude. Cyclists are advised to follow the route in an anti-clockwise direction. The route is part of the one used for the ‘Maratona dles Dolomites’ event and is a favourite among the main contenders of Giro d’Italia. Enthusiasts will have the chance to put themselves to the test at their own pace, crossing the mountain passes that will be closed to traffic, and all just a few weeks after the world’s greatest cyclists have competed here.
