THE NORTH LOOP
FROM 18 TO 24 JULY | 6 DAYS | 210 KM – 8150 D+
Ride the finest gravel roads and paths, climb the highest off-road mountain passes and pedal face to face with stunning rock shapes. Grass meadows, windy crests, huts with-a-view, local food and craft beer.
The adventure begin from the untouched Tires valley. Start your day while the morning sun climbs the shoulders of Catinaccio mountain, cycle in harmony across larch trees, fields&crops. Tiny old villages and castles will show you the way north to Castelrotto medieval town before entering Gardena valley. Puez-Odle Natural Park and Alta Badia now awaits you with some of the most iconic peaks of the whole region.
Feel like a Giro d’Italia pro while climbing the legendary Pordoi Pass, but please remember your real nature: that of a Gravel Grinder! Enjoy off-road fun again with a glimpse over Marmolada glacier, go downhill to Fassa valley and then again, climb in silence reaching Alpe di Siusi. This is the largest European highland were lucky cows lives at the foot of the impressive shape of the Sassopiatto mountain.
