Riding bikes in the mountains doesn’t always have to be tough, but certainly requires a certain level of physical effort. This particular tour can easily be done with kids. The entire ride unfolds on well sign-posted paved roads with the exception of a few dirt-road sections. Also, in the summer months, there is a shuttle bus that runs back to Cortina.

Directions
