Racing bike holidays in the region around Alta Badia
The racing bike region around Alta Badia is a true paradise for professional racing bikers and athletes, with very demanding mountain passes. The winding roads that snake around the foot of the Dolomite peaks are loved by all keen racing bikers. On the tour programme here are not only the classics, made famous by the Giro d’Italia, but also other less well-known but nevertheless very attractive climbs.

Racing biking in the South Tyrol region
Alta Badia is an ideal base for racing bike tours: some of the most beautiful Dolomite passes are only about 10 km away, just the right distance to warm up before attacking the climb.

Sellaronda
The classic among the Dolomites tours is surely the Sellaronda. The shortest of the three routes and one of the region’s most popular tours is the “Maratona dles Dolomites“. Thousands of participants bring action to the four Dolomites passes during the car-free ”Sellaronda Bike Day“. The Grödner Pass, the Pordoi Pass, the Campolongo Pass and the Stelvio Pass are exclusively reserved for cyclists on this day. Even cycling sports enthusiasts with children trailers, tricycles and unicycles have been spotted on this day; although, this is not really surprising given the steady up and down. Also, none of the ramps on the Sellaronda exceeds 8%.

Because of the many curvy roads, the region around Alta Badia at the base of the might peaks of the Dolomites is a true paradise for racing cycle pros and competitive sportsmen and women. The countless passes do require quite some high levels of fitness. The classic Dolomites tours, which have been made famous by the Giro d’Italia, as well as lesser known yet interesting ascents, are easily reached when starting from Alta Badia. However, the Alta Badia also offers quite something for beginners. The shorter, easier routes are perfect for enjoying the beauty of the UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Dolomites.
