My name is Anna, I'm 25 years old, and I'm from Germany. Nature, culture, and photography are my passions. The bicycle is a recent love story: when I cycle I feel more inspired than ever. When I heard about the Dolomites Bike Day, in the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage site, I decided: that is where I want to go.
Photography is my passion, and when I cycle, I always find new inspirations. I told myself: "the Dolomites Bike Day, in the Dolomites, it's the perfect day to feel part of a natural heritage of unique beauty.
To discover the valleys, to admire the rocky peaks, to learn about the Ladin history. I can't wait to begin my trip!Places of interest
In just a few rides I realized how nice it is to pedal – but also that to achieve certain goals you need to train frequently. In my rides, I try to mix my commitment with fun, so fatigue becomes a form of unexpected beauty.Preparation for the bike day
I've read that to complete the 51km loop you need 1,500 kcal on average. I have to get in the right amount of energy, which means a full breakfast before the start and snacks along the way, along with a regular hydration plan. At the end, a good lunch is the right reward.The correct nutrition
"Da pera a pera", from stone to stone: this is how the locals call the last, very tough, 100 meters to reach the top of the Valparola. Constant gradient between 12% and 15%.
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.
