The Lagorai Dolomites chain is best known in the biking world for the more than 1,000 km of trails offered to lovers of fat tires. Nonetheless, if you have not taken this destination into consideration for your next active road bike holiday, it’s time to change your mind. The Lagorai Dolomites are a starting point for many historic climbs that over the years have challenged top riders of the Giro d’Italia, such as the San Pellegrino Pass, the Manghen Pass, as well as the nearby Pordoi. Alternatively, you can head out towards its valleys, cycling in peace without accumulating any difference in altitude. The choice is yours!
Typical dumplings made of stale bread and spinach seasoned with eggs, milk and salt. The dumplings are cooked in boiling water and seasoned with Parmesan cheese and melted butter. They are a great and light first course even for cyclists.
An offal stew made with hearts, liver and lungs, to which sweetbreads can also be added. Traditionally it is served with yellow corn polenta or darker buckwheat polenta and fresh seasonal vegetables.
Traditional sweet made with rolled or stuffed dough. In its most famous version, it is sweet and filled with apples, pine nuts, raisins and cinnamon. It is traditionally prepared mainly in the Alto Adige, Trentino, Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia regions. Every place has its own recipe.
The presence of man in the Lagorai Dolomites has always been limited. In the middle ages, for example, signs of civilization were evident in alpine pastures further down the valley and during the summer pasture months. And this is precisely the charm of this chain even today. A rough and wild mountain, mostly uninhabited, slaughtered a century ago by the violence of war and transformed into an oasis of pristine and unspoiled nature.
