No reason to complicate life! Riding long climbs on a mountain bike is a matter of taste; people either love it or hate it. If folks belong to the ‘hate it’ camp, there is a pretty simple remedy.

Directions

On this tour the first chunk of vertical metres (to the Bellamonte- Lusia cable car) can be easily “conquered” with the support of the Bellamonte express. the Malga Bocche, first checkpoint of the day, offers stunning views on the Pale di S.Martino. A panoramic road leads to the second checkpoint – the Rifugio Lusia – at almost the same altitude. After a good break the tour continues “only” on a downhill. By Bellamonte the route passes the cool Gola di Sotto Sassa gorge (Val travignolo), with its steep rock walls. the goal, the “Funivie del Latemar” cable car, is located next to the village in direction Moena. Fit riders can avoid the shuttle bus service.
