Mountainbike in the Dolomites
Fun in the nature
Holiday in the Hotel Europa means having an easy access to the Sellaronda and the Dolomites overall.
It doesn’t matter which type of cyclist you are, the possibilities are countless. You can discover the numerous passes of the Dolomites or cycle in the quiet off road streets, which will bring you in the hearth of the mountains. For the brave ones there is the possibility to challenge the numerous single trails, which were designed for the known off road race “Sellaronda HERO”. It is always a pleasure to seek new roads and find unexplored mountains and landscapes with their beautiful summer colours.
Dolomites and Sellaronda, the heaven for the bikers
Passo Gardena, Campolongo Passo Pordoi and Sella, these are the four hills of the Sellaronda. However, if you are looking for a higher challenge you can include the Fedaia and the Falzarego in your tour. All these hills made the history of the cycling with their appearance during the “Giro d’Italia” and other events.
For the mountain-bike lovers there are many single trails and free ride tours in the nature that can be done. The hard ascents should not bother you if you feel not trained enough, since many lifts are open and can bring you to the summit of the trails. However if you would like to do the ascents as well, you will have the possibility to rent E-bikes and charge them in the many charging stations along the Sellaronda. Many events designed for bikers are organised throughout the summer. During the “Sellaronda bike day” the streets are opened just for the bikes. This event is very popular among amateurs, which want to spend a day on the bike without worrying about the cars and traffic overall.
For the more competitive ones there is the race called “Maratona dles Dolomites”, which takes place since 1987. For the mountain-bike lovers we organise the “Sellaronda Hero”, one of the toughest off road races of the world.
