General description

The passo delle Erbe is one of the most beautiful scenery of the Dolomites. The green meadows on the northern edge of the Puez – Odle Nature Park and the imposing Dolomite peaks accompany the cyclists during the tour which is not between the most famous itineraries in the area but for sure it is among the most impressive ones.

Starting the tour from Alta Badia you cycle on relatively low-traffic roads with some spectacular panoramic view and at times technically challenging. On the way to the Passo delle Erbe there are a few sharp hairpin turn and some steep climbs with gradients of up to 16%.

Route description

From Badia you ride northwards on the main road no. 244. A few wide bends take you to La Val and then you continue downhill to just outside Piccolino, where the road bears left to San Martino in Badia. From San Martino you ride uphill to Antermoia and the Passo delle Erbe pass.

The effort of the climb is compensated for by the stunning panoramic view: woodland and meadows and the amazing backdrop of the Dolomites accompany cyclists all the way on this tour. En route from Stan Martino in Badia there are gradients of up to 16 % to overcome.
