April 27, 2021
On this round tour you circle the entire Marmolada massif and arrive at Alleghe at the foot of the mighty rock wall of the 3,220 meter high Civetta, which slopes more than 1,000 meters almost vertically to the west. At the beautiful mountain lake of Alleghe you can even take a little swim. Alternatively, there are nice cafés and bars with mountain and lake views in the manageable village. From our Bike Hotel Croce Bianca you start out comfortably following the Fassa valley out of the valley to Moena. We recommend the beautifully laid out and continuously asphalted Dolomites cycle path with its beautiful route away from the busy road. In Moena you leave the main valley in the direction of Passo di San Pellegrino. The pass road in the direction of Falcade is not very busy and leads you through the beautiful landscape of the Val di San Pellegrino, initially with sections in the shady forest, later mainly over open pasture areas and past numerous huts where you can stop off. You reach the top of the pass at 1,918 meters. As early as the 14th century, monks founded a hospice here. Their medal also gives the passport its name. During the First World War, the San Pellegrino was of strategic importance.If you unpack your hiking boots every now and then, the Costabella Kammweg north of the pass is a recommendation for you if your racing bike is allowed to rest for a day. Following in the footsteps of the First World War, a path leads there as a circular tour starting at the pass to the Bergvagabundenhütte, varied and spectacular through tunnels, tunnels, trenches and caverns to several fascinating peaks to the Rifugio Fuciade. From there you get back to the starting point. The San Pellegrino pass road initially drops steeply to Falcade. You have an excellent view of the imposing rock giants of the Pale di San Martino. From the quaint Falcade Alto, where a fountain is perfectly located directly on the road, you get a great impression of the route that is still to come. In total, you rewind almost twenty kilometers and 1,140 meters in altitude down into the valley to Cencenighe Agordino at a rushing pace. On the way you will pass the village of Canale d’Agordo. At the beautiful village square of the birthplace of Pope John Paul I, you can take a relaxed break and fill your energy stores in a quiet atmosphere. The second ascent of the day begins in Cencenighe. It remains moderate until after Caprile. The old street is parallel to the new main street in the direction of Alleghe, directly on the river. Thunderstorms and falling rocks have affected it badly. The best thing to do is to check the location directly on site to see whether the passage to Vare is currently open. Another alternative route with a little more view and quiet roads leads you shortly before Cencenighe to the west side of the valley and through the hamlets of the municipality of San Tomaso Agordino to Vare. This route variant is two kilometers and around 230 meters in altitude more than the planned route. Alleghe at the foot of the Civetta is a well-known winter sports resort and has a lot to offer in terms of sport even in summer. Racing cyclists, mountain bikers, hikers and mountaineers meet here. At the lake you can really relax or even go swimming before the final mountain stage awaits you. In Caprile you leave the main valley and follow the mountain road that meanders through the Val Pettorina up to the Passo Fedaia. We recommend you lay your route through the Serrai di Sottoguda gorge. The ascent is a little steeper than the main road, but all the more spectacular. Because the little road leads through a narrow gorge with walls up to one hundred meters high. It's nice and cool here on hot days in summer. Don't forget to bring a few euros with you to enter. The last meters of altitude to the pass will be crisp again, but reward you with spectacular views of the Marmolada and its glacier, the deep blue Lago di Fedaia and a subsequent dream descent to the starting point at the Hotel Croce Bianca. Your after-work drink and a cozy lounger to relax await you there.
