Routes & FAQs

The Routes

There are a couple of shorter route options but we strongly suggest the long route. This is only 108km and then you roll downhill for 30km to get back to the race village in Auronzo di Cadore. Expect stunning lakes, classic climbs and some quiet local roads.

Choose the Route

Ride Distance: 104

Elevation gain: 2320

A cracking route mixing lesser ridden local climbs with a world class summit finish. The start loops around Auronzo di Cadore with an undulating route including three named climbs. After coming back into the start town the last 30km is all uphill. The first 25km is gentle on the way to Misurina and then you hit the Tre Cime and the gradients get nasty!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

We collect from Venice for the 1hr45min drive to Auronzo di Cadore. Collections are at 11am for arrival at 1pm.

Documents Required

You will need a signed medical certificate so we can collect your race entries in Auronzo di Cadore.

What to Pack

The gradients on the Tre Cime are steep so make sure you have enough gears - local bike rentals are 50/34 x 11/32. The weather in June can be changeable (the summit is over 2,300m) so bring clothing for all conditions.

Warm up Rides

We have time for a coffee spin on Friday and then take in a lovely 85km warm up ride on the Saturday over a different part of the Dolomites that you won't see on the sportive. This is a social ride at a relaxed pace leaving you plenty of time in the afternoon to relax and prepare for Sunday.
