Length and unpaved, medium-elevation slopes make for a killer mix in Colle delle Finestre.
This route of military origin is found in the Orsiera-Rocciavrè natural park; its steadily rising, ramp-like course has an average gradient of 9% and has only been traversable by cyclists in the past few years. The first 11 kilometres are paved with asphalt, while the final eight are not, capturing the essence of cycling from a bygone era and adding an epic vibe that puts one in mind of champions past. Don’t forget to pack an extra pair of inner tubes – this dirt road can have some unpleasant surprises in store.
