Sella Ronda

Bike route 239092 – powered by Bikemap 

This unbelievable loop is the first stretch of the Maratona dles Dolomites – but today I did it in the opposite direction – counterclockwise.

Near Passo Sella

Starting from Corvara, there are four climbs: Passo Gardena, Passo Sella, Passo Pordoi, and Passo Campolongo.

Today, I took it easy just enjoying the views and taking some photos. At the top of Passo Pordoi is the Coppi monument:

Happiest while cycling uphill. More enthusiastic than talented, my 2014 Challenge is to cycle 50 great rides, slowly.

  1. Ciao Will, i came by your site whilst looking for somewhere in Europe to set up a cycle-tour business with my wife (I retire in less than 3 years (aged 50)).
    I haven’t taken time to have a good look through the content but I just wanted to say that I really like what I’ve seen so far. You’ve gotta be proud of what you’ve done so far, good on you.
    Many thanks,

    Nige.

    Hi. I actually did ‘La Sella Ronda’ race itself on 27 June. I rode a total of 68kms on my mountain bike in a time of just about 4hrs (including riding to and from my car at S.Cristina). Although it was tough, as you can see the views were truly stunning. The best part is the descents! Also, I rode across the Himalayas last year and tackled 5 mega passes of over 5,000 mtrs, the worst being the infamous Pang La. This Sunday rode up the Passo del Giova (near Varzi) where at the very, very top you have the last 3-4kms at 20%!!

    Why do we do this stuff? Can’t figure it out…!!
