Tour of tracks and trails in the spectacular massif of the Sassolungo, a spectacular group of needles and limestone towers very aesthetic on any of its faces. Like most mountain ranges in the Dolomites it is an isolated massif, with impressive vertical walls and clearly differentiated from the other massifs, so turning it around is a challenge that leaves you with a good taste of mouth, despite the technical difficulty of some section of the long final path.
It is important to emphasize the last fact, because almost at the end, for about 10 kms, the route runs along a path with difficult sections and surely we will have to walk some section with the bike next to it. In the initial and intermediate sections there is some small section quite straight and stony but basically it is a good track.
The panoramic views and the spectacular beauty of the whole environment make up for it, especially if you enjoy pedaling on trails and technical trails. Keep in mind that the route is longer and tougher than the numbers seem to indicate, so consider some provisions, although the route goes through several shelters where we can also refuel. We took this route in early June and came across an authentic burst of alpine flower that further beautified the scenery and found only a small gully of snow that didn't stop us from passing the trail.

Flors alpines

In early June many of the flowers typical of alpine meadows are at their peak, such as the Pulsatilla alpina, Gentiana acaulis or the Dryas octopetala.

    Volta molt espectacular a un dels massisos clàssics d'aquest sector de les Dolomites. La veritat és que s'ha d'arrossegar la bicicleta durant força estona durant els últims quilometres de corriol, però la bellesa de l'entorn contrarresten sobradament.

    Moltes gràcies pel comentari Pirene, realment és una ruta que s'ha d'empènyer un tram la bicicleta però estem d'acord que els paisatges i l'entorn d'alta muntanya compensen aquest esforç.

    Si la volta es fa en sentit contrari és més ciclable?

    No crec que hi hagi una gran diferència però és millor fer-la en el sentit ressenyat ja que així s'haurà d'empènyer menys la bicicleta. Sort i bones pedalades!
