Val Di Fassa, Cycling & M...

From Val di Fassa mountain bikers gain access to an estimated 1000 kilometres plus of marked biking trails, many of which can be found in the valley itself. Of the numerous routes that begin on the doorstep there’s a good mix including everything from the particularly easy and accessible to the more arduous and challenging. The tough trails are certainly enough to put both body and mind to the test. Biking aficionados’ will certainly know of the Rampilonga or the event that may have superseded it, the Val di Fassa Bike, an international mountain bike marathon that usually takes place in early September on the peaks and in the forests above Moena at the southern end of Val di Fassa usually.

However, there’s no need to sign up for a competition in order to build up a sweat. With tours like the Sella Ronda, once the sole preserve of skiers and snowboarders, but now accessible to mountain bikers, riders can cover the better part of 60 kilometres in the saddle and only have to compete with the clock. The route that is considerably longer for cyclists than snow sliders – about twice as long in fact – circumnavigates the Gruppo Del Sella Massif in either direction utilising ski lifts on the major uphill sections. If done in a clockwise direction the distance covered is 58 kilometres while anti-clockwise it is only 53 kilometres.

The thing about this region is that although the biking is good, maybe even great the scenery is outstanding; bubbling rivers, shimmering lakes, shaded woods, flower filled meadows and of course the breathtaking pink peaks of the Dolomites. You’ll quite simply want to stay here.
