Safety informationPlease note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
Pedaling from Predazzo, the first kilometre is slightly uphill. The actual climb comes after, with the road climbing uphill for a more challenging 5-kilometre stretch. This first stretch leads onto a plateau, where the asphalt ribbon flows within an Alpine landscape of rare beauty. This is the site of the Paneveggio-Pale di San Martino nature park, the forest of violins, where Stradivari selected the red spruce wood for his instruments.
Fort Buso with the adjacent Lake appears in its linear construction, a testimony of the Great War.
The ride continues across the bridge over the Travignolo torrent and for one and a half kilometres the road gets harder. There are still 4 kilometres and a half left to the pass, divided by a short ramp that is almost imperceptible. Upon arrival, Passo Rolle appears cradled by pastures and dairy huts. At the top stands a monument dedicated to Gino Bartali who wrote some epic pages of his cycling career on these roads.
