For those intending to spend a longer holiday in the Dolomites, this tour is an ideal cycling introduction to the area. Most of the tour runs on the meticulously sign-posted Cortina–Dobbiaco cycle route, while the steep climb on technical terrain to the Forcella Lerosa requires a good amount of stamina. Reward is a nice single-track section with tight switchbacks from the Forcella to the Malga Ra Stua.

Just the landscape is reason enough to get out on a bike. even the physical effort is contained with an 810 metres climb. this tour derives its name from the Forcella Lerosa, located on a high altitude alp at the beginning of the Val de Gotres.
