We start our tour in Laives and cycle continuously uphill to Maria Weißenstein. This is the most famous place of pilgrimage in South Tyrol. The baroque church dates back to the 17th century. During our stay we enjoy the view of the Ortler group, the Latemar, the Rosengarten group as well as the Schlern. We can also stop at the Maria Weißenstein Inn to recharge our batteries.

Then we cycle via Neuhütt and the Laaberalm back to Laives. On partly difficult terrain we can put our technical skills to the test.
