Dolomites Bike Day

Sunday, 16/06/2019

On this day, all the infamous pass roads in the Dolomites are reserved for bikers only.

The third edition of the Dolomites Bike Day, a major bike event in the Dolomites, features a new highlight this year.

A stretch of about 108 km is closed for all motorized vehicles and can be accessed by bikers only, mastering the total distance or only parts of it, according to individual skills.

This route is the longest for a Bike Day in Europe yet and leads bike enthusiasts over five legendary mountain passes, which were once part of the Giro d’Italia across the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage, and over a few mountain passes, which are part of the track of the the Maratona dles Dolomites – Enel in July.

Passo Pordoi, Fedaia, Valparola, Falzarego, and Campologono offer the breathtaking setting for this amateur bike event. Every biker can participate free of charge and choose his or her own route length individually, according to fitness and stamina.

The roads and passes between Alta Badia, Veneto and Trentino are closed for motorised traffic from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. and thus free for race-, mountain- and e-bikes, tandem and historic bikes as well as bikes pulling bike trailers for kids.

Sellaronda Bike Day

Saturday, 22/06/2019

Event for amateur bikers around the Sella massif

The Sellaronda Bike Day is a bike event without competition for all bike enthusiasts.

On this Saturday, the day of the Sellaronda Bike Day, the passes around the Sella mountain group (the so-called Sellaronda) are closed for all motorized vehicles and free for bike fans only. From 8:30 a.m. till 3:30 p.m., these roads in the Dolomites are reserved for bikers only: on race bikes, MTBs, tandem bikes, monocycles, or even historic high wheelers.

You do not need to register for the Sellaronda Bike Day. Everyone starts the tour in his or her favourite valley: Alta Badia, Val Badia/Gadertal, Val di Fassao, or Arabba. There is no maximum number of participants and everyone bikes just the way and how long he or she wants. Admire the panoramic view of the Dolomites along the track, take a break on the mountain passes or in the villages, and pedal together with like-minded bikers: the Sellaronda Bike Day is a unique and jolly get-together on wheels.

The tour of approx. 53 km leads over Passo Gardena/Grödner Joch, Passo di Sella/Sellajoch, Passo Pordoi, and Passo Campolongo, with a total altitude difference of approx. 1,600 m.

We recommend you to do the tour counter-clockwise.
