The Stoneman Trail in the Dolomites is a real challenge. Nevertheless, the Stoneman is neither an event nor a race. It is a multi-stage trail, especially designed for mountain bikers, a challenge without racing stress that you can take on at any time. You ride to five checkpoints, which occupy your journey. And you'll get a trophy at the end if you make it. But the unforgettable biking experience on the most beautiful trails of the Sesto Dolomites would be reward enough. The Stoneman is a sustainable, impressive nature experience that you will never forget.

The idea
The idea originated from former professional cyclist Roland Stauder. After he finished his active career, the idea of the Stoneman matured in him. A challenge from the biker for bikers. The aim is to complete a given route within a certain period of time and to prove this yourself at five checkpoints in the form of postmarks. But this challenge has nothing to do with rigid racing feeling. This challenge is tailor-made: Whether you complete the checkpoints on one, two or three days is up to you. This makes the Stoneman Dolomiti a real test for hard-bitten endurance professionals, but is also easy for normal Otto bikers to master in three days. So that you can fully enjoy your time in the Dolomites, we have turned the big Stoneman round into three shorter tours, all of which start and end in San Candido. So you can set up your base camp here and start the next stage well recovered the next day. In the end you have collected about 5,300 altitude meters and 167 kilometers. To get the official trophy for it and also to support this beautiful project, you can buy a "starter package" before the tour (23 Euro), which contains the stamp bracelet next to beautiful goodies.

Bike & Stuff
Since you are on the way in partly high alpine terrain, it goes without saying that you prepare yourself a little bit. The most necessary spare parts belong in the backpack, as well as some emergency food, a first aid kit and clothing for a possible weather change. You need cash to rest in the idyllically situated mountain huts. When it comes to biking you are best advised with a normal Tourenfully or Endurobike.

By the way: The name Stoneman comes from the "stoanernen Mandln", the stacked stone figures that grow a little bit with every hiker or biker. When you come over, you can put a little stone on top and leave your trail!

    This tour presents itself as "Stoneman Dolomiti Warmup". Which does not mean that she will not challenge you. After all, you are in the Dolomites and about 1,500 meters in altitude want to be mastered first. However, they are distributed over a relatively moderate, albeit long, ascent from Toblach up

    The second tour starts again with a relaxed warm-up program, this time along the beautiful Drauradweg. But in fact it is rather the calm before the storm: The ascent from Sillian to the Sillianer hut costs a few grains. At around four kilometers, 1,330 meters of altitude are waiting for you.

    Two longer climbs await you on the third Stoneman stage. From the starting point, you start quite loosely in the direction of Moos, shortly it goes on the rise to Knieberg saddle but quite well to the point. The old military route will surely challenge you. There are two great highlights waiting for
