11° max

Take the cable car up to Mt. Faloria. Once on top, take a moment to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Ampezzo Valley below.

Start riding downhill, partly along the ski run and partly on a fun trail

Once you reach Rio Gere, cross the road to Passo Tre Croci and take the chairlift up to Son Forca at the foot of Mt Cristallo.

Long and fun ride down to Ospitale and leisurely return to Cortina along the Cortina-Dobbiaco cycling path.

At the intersection with the road that ascends to Verocai, turn right. Cross the SS51 state road and continue along via Marangoi as far as the Ice Arena. Take the Freccia nel Cielo gondola up to Col Drusciè, behind the Ice Arena.

Descend to Piè Tofana along the ski run and take the chairlift up to Rifugio Duca d’Aosta. Get back on your bike and enjoy the ride along the Tofanina ski run as far as Malghe Fedarola.

Keep descending until you intersect the road to Passo Falzarego. Once you get down to the paved road, you need to ride uphill for about 2km as far as Bai de Dones where you find the charlift that takes you up to Rifugio Scoiattoli, located right next to the Cinque Torri.

Weather permitting, a walk through the trenches of the World War 1 open-air museum is definitely worth it .

Descend toward Rifugio Cinque Torri and then to Cianzopè. After a short ride along the state road turn right on the newly built dirt road to Peziè de Parù. Cross the road to Passo Giau and ride along the dirt road as far as Lake d’Ajal and then to Mortija Village.

Return back to Cortina along the paved road.
