Be ready to take part in this bike tour along the Giau Pass, one of the most challenging Dolomite passes crossed many times by the "Giro d’Italia" and the famous Marathon of the Dolomites.
From Alleghe lake you will head towards Selva di Cadore. The first part of the tour, very technical and demanding, winds its way through a fir forest. This is the hardest stretch that almost reaches 16% slope. At the end you will arrive at the Fedare shelter. After passing the refuge, the slopes become lighter, and you reach the top of the Pass Giau at an altitude of 2236 meters.
From the top of the Pass, you can clearly see Cortina d’Ampezzo, the Tofane, the Croda Rossa, the Pelmo, the Pomagagnon, the Cristallo and Croda da Lago, the Averau, the Sella massif and the Marmolada. From here you will go down for about 16 km to Cortina.
