Mountain biking in the Dolomites
Cycling on the rocks
From challenging single trails through the forest and fun freeride paths, all the way to clear road bike routes and wild Dolomite canyons – family tourers, bike newbies or hardened racing cyclists will all be thrilled to sample the “All-Mountain” atmosphere in Obereggen <LINK: bike videos>!
The numerous bike trails, forest ways and hiking trails open up the Val d’Ega and the surrounding areas. Mountain bikers are spoilt for choice! Routes range from “easy” trips in the lower Valle Isarco and Val d’Adige right up to the stamina tests presented by the mountain passes: the Nigra, Costalunga and Lavazè passes all demand super-fit calf muscles!
The crown jewels of the trails in the Val d’Ega are the Latemar round tour and the Giro d’Italia stage - a must for experts, as is the tour of the Sella, Gardena, Pordoi and Campolongo passes.
Good tours need good planning
All cyclists love the idea of unrestricted movement. But what goes down must first come up. The lift systems in the Val d’Ega also run in summer! There are also numerous shuttle buses and bike shuttles, as conserving the environment and local resources should be a fundamental credo of every cyclist!
Bike service and tips
Faster or spontaneous bike tours are also a possibility, with E-bikes, mountain bikes, road bikes – simply choose and rent the right bike for you!
