Road Cycling Highlight
The Campolongo is the "smallest" of the Dolomite passes and the difference in altitude to be overcome is rather manageable at 368 meters (north approach from Corvara). Nevertheless, it is a beautiful route: You look down on lush mountain meadows on one side and up on the rugged rock faces of the Sella massif on the other. On the Sella Ronda he is “the fourth in the league” and more like the little “connoisseur pass” than the tough challenge.

Be careful when descending from Campolongo to Corvara. According to a local resident, this pass descent with all its wonderful loops is built on an old mud flood that keeps falling. Sometimes there are quite high heels in the asphalt because another piece of the road has sagged. The road builders patch it up every year. But according to the motto "Plug a hole, open a new one", this is a hopeless fight.

The Sellaronda, also known as "Cater Pasch" by the locals, is a bit more difficult to ride clockwise than counterclockwise. Those who start the tour in Selva have 62 km to go, from Canazei 63 km and from Corcara or Arabba about 10 km less so only 51 km.

Part of the Sellaronda, where you cross the Passo Sella, Pordoi Pass, Campolongo Pass and Val Gardena Pass. By bike, the four passes can be conquered on 52 kilometers of paved road. The bus service that is set up around the track is also geared to transport bicycles.

Yes, really a great round. At each pass there are starting points to very beautiful hiking routes. Was just 6 weeks ago in this area and am always thrilled. The last tour (2016-09-29 Piz Boe) was on Sass Pordoi with a lap up to the Piz Boe (3125m). However, we drove by car to this starting point and then start the hikes from there. If you have time and travel by bike, you should do the whole Sella-Runde, look for accommodation again and again and then hike the region. Driving the entire Sella circuit is also nice if you do not want to hike or bike. Then you should make but each on the Passhöhne extensively rest and enjoy the view.

The best way to enjoy the beauty of the Dolomites by bike is a relatively short and not too difficult ride. It certainly requires training, but with a total elevation gain of less than 2,000m in less than 60km it is doable with a minimum of training.

The Campolongo pass is an alpine pass in the Dolomites located at 1,875 m a.s.l., on the border between Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige. It is located immediately east of the Sella Group, and connects Arabba with Corvara in Badia, thus joining the Val Cordevole with the Val Badia.
