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 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.
If you ride down from the Campolongo Pass, you reach the village of Arabba. Its inhabitants are also known in the area as "i glacei da Rèba" or "the frozen ones" because the place is mostly in the shade.
We were ready to ride, safe in the knowledge that we were going to have a wonderful day, come rain or shine. But for reasons everyone knows, it's not going to happen. Unfortunately, we must postpone the event until next year. Our shared dream, to ride at the foot of the Dolomites free from traffic, and on the climbs that have written the history of cycling, is only postponed.
We will see you next year, on 12.06.2021 to be precise. So dear cyclists, champions and amateurs, women and men, fathers, mothers and children, young and old: keep dreaming and cycle when you can. The Dolomites are here waiting for you. We hope you have a happy and safe Summer. Best wishes.
