Route description (2021):
From the medieval walls of Cittadella you'll pedal northward up to the slopes of the Monte Grappa. Here the first long climb ("trail 95") will start. Once at the summit, a long descend will lead you to Lake Corlo and Val Belluna.
After passing through the historic centre of Feltre you'll cycle towards Lake Mis until you'll reach Forcella Franche (991m above sea level). From here a descent leads to Agordo. The Agordina cycle path through Taibon and Cencenighe will take you to Alleghe and its beautiful lake surrounded by the astonishing Monte Civetta.
From Alleghe you will continue toward Selva di Cadore and Passo Staulanza, before which you'll turn left and start a nice climb to Rifugio Città di Fiume. Shortly after the refugio you will find yourself in front of the toughest and most spectacular part of the trail, about 30 minutes of hike a bike that will take you up to Forcella Ambrizzola (2277m above sea level), where the view of the Mondeval, the Lastoi del Formin and the Croda da Lago will repay any effort made.
From that pass you'll descend to Lake Federa and then straight to Cortina D'Ampezzo. Here a stretch of the Dolomites cycle path will take you to Carbonin and Lake Misurina. Another nice climb leads to Rifugio Città di Carpi and wonderful views of Cadini di Misurina, Sorapis and Sesto Dolomites. Now it's time for the downhill of Val d'Onge that fineshes almost in Auronzo.
A detour will now take you to Pian dei Buoi, below the Marmarole group. It's time to go again in the valley and ride through Calalzo di Cadore and Longarone. After this fast and flat section the last long climb begins: the Nevegal and Col Visentin. The views of Val Belluna and the Dolomites on one side and the Po Valley on the other characterizes this section until Pian de le Femane, where the steep dirt road descent to Tovena-Cison di Valmarino begins.
The ups and downs of the world famous Prosecco hills are now waiting for you till the little town of Asolo. The Ezzelini cycle path, along the Muson, will finally lead you to the finish line, after 440km and 10,000m of elevation gain.
