Save the date

The Campolongo, the Falzarego, and the Valparola passes will stay closed to traffic from 8:30am until 2:30 pm. The roads that connect the valleys of Alta Badia, Livinallongo and Ampezzo will be reserved for cyclists. What else could you ask for?

One course, plenty of emotions

These are the same roads where the Maratona Dles Dolomites -- one of the world's largest granfondos for road bikes -- takes place. There is no better place for you to cycle and feel the beauty of nature around you.

You can choose the starting point of the day in total freedom, and you don't even have to get to a start line. Just jump into the Bike Day loop and enjoy cycling in a UNESCO World Heritage Site. That doesn't happen every day.

The three passesBike Day

Well, no, 16 hairpin bends are not enough to complete the entire loop. 16 are the hairpin bends to the Falzarego pass, 13 km of pure pleasure with spectacular panoramic points.

"Da Ciaulonch a Fauzare ruon con puoch plu de n vare", as the Ladins say. From Campolongo pass to Falzarego pass it only takes little more than one step.

Sharing this special day with many bike lovers was a unique experience for me. Families with children, professional and passionate cyclists ... an excellent opportunity to ride on the Dolomite passes while enjoying the wonder of these mountains, all without motorized traffic!

A challenging and rewarding route through stunning scenery. 4 of us ladies travelled from the UK to take part in a very memorable weekend in a cycling heaven. Love the fact that it's free and you just turn up and keep the pedals turning.

The DBD is a 51 km long hug between Alta Badia and Livinallongo. We cyclists are the blood that flows through the sinuous road veins in search of oxygen, given by the wonderful panorama that only the Dolomites can offer. I guarantee you that you will never want to let go!
