Cycling Holidays in the Dolomites Sellaronda
1. Cycle up the most spectacular Dolomitic peaks, UNESCO World Heritage Site;
2. Possibility of reaching the highest summit of the Sella Group: the Piz Boè, with an altitude of 3,152 metres;
3. By completing the whole tour of the Group, by road bike or MTB, you can cross 4 passes: the Sella Pass, the Pordoi Pass, the Campolongo Pass and the Gardena Pass;
4. Sellaronda Bike Day is the event in which the roads leading up the four passes are closed to motor traffic, and are covered by over 20,000 cyclists.
An extraordinary collage of shapes and colours and an ample selection of routes, far from the over-crowded locations, is what the Sella Group offers. Defined by some as a rock castle whose various faces are all different, and by others as a majestic island reaching towards the sky; the Sella Group is the most characteristic massif of the Dolomites. Their rapt silence and aristocratic majesty are enough to stop you in your tracks in contemplation and admiration of the panorama.
Don’t overly fixate on the road climbing towards the summits, where the passes you want to conquer and add to your cycling passport are, otherwise you’ll end up bolting to the nearest village to indulge in the local delicacies.
