Since the winter olympic games in 1956, cortina has become
one of the most important centres in the Dolomites, with a large tourism-based infrastructure. Located at an elevation of 1200 m in the Val Boite, this town is surrounded by stunning mountains: tofane, cristallo, Sorapiss, Antelao and Pelmo. the area is pretty much designed to host numerous mountain biking itineraries with some of the most breath-taking panoramic views. Some of these have been selected and accurately sign-posted for all grades of difficulty.
From cortina ➊ bus station (1220 m) take the cycle path heading toward Dobbiaco following signage for MtB route n. 7, which will lead to the ➋ SS 51 road. cross the road and head to the camping olympia, following paved mountain road and then the nice forest roads up to the crossing ➌ Sotto i crep de cianderou (1649 m). From here, take a right and look out for a ➍ wooden cross (1745 m), the highest point of this itinerary. on a narrow and sometimes very exposed forest path keep pedalling toward the ➎ Forcella Posporcora (1720 m), and start descending on a sketchy single-track to ➏ the Posporcora bridge (1640 m). Continue in the direction of Pian de Loa eventually getting to ➐ Ponte Alto (1490 m); on a wide forest road descend into the valley toward the ➑ Lido capoverde car park. From here, follow the signs to cortina town centre, pass the hotel ➒ Fiames and get to the camping ➓ olympia. Return to the starting point on the road back to cortina.
