The Reiterjoch (Passo di Pampeago) at 1,990 meters connects the Fiemme Valley in Trentino with the Eggental in South Tyrol. To the east of the pass rise the gray rock towers of the Latemar, to the west of the 2,492 meter high Zanggen, which belongs to the Fiemme Valley Alps. The original farm road through the beautiful alpine landscape has only been completely asphalted since 2012. The road is closed to motorized traffic, making it one of the wonderfully quiet alternatives to the Lavazejoch, which is located further to the west. The Reiterjoch is a regular part of the Giro d’Italia when the route runs through Tesero.The start and finish of the round tour is of course our Bike Hotel Croce Bianca in Canazei. The warm-up phase and the rolling out after the two passes take place on the Dolomites cycle path and on side roads through the Val di Fassa. From Tesero you can expect about 1,100 meters in altitude over 12 kilometers up to the first pass at the Reiterjoch. The driveway is demanding. The scenic impressions and the panorama are an experience. The makers of the Giro know that too. Without public traffic you can enjoy the impressions even better. Every now and then you just have to dodge cows or their legacies. At the pass you have the choice between two beautifully located huts for a break before you start the descent: 1,100 meters in altitude over eleven kilometers.In Birchabruck you have the choice of either rolling a little further to the next roundabout and cranking there over a remote road via Gummer to Welschnofen or taking the Direttissima on the country road. The detour will cost you about eight kilometers and an additional 260 meters in altitude. If you stay on the planned route, you can now expect around 880 meters in altitude on a 14-kilometer route to the Karer Pass. On the way you pass the wonderful Karersee. From the Karerpass it finally goes downhill with great views to Pozza di Fassa. From there you follow the famous Dolomites cycle path back to Canazei.
