The Dolomites Bike Day 2022 is an event for all bike lovers, considered the longest bike day in Europe.
The initial route - Alta Badia, Arabba, Passo Falzarego and Passo Valparola - adds a further cycling loop through tourist resorts immersed in the unique scenery of the Dolomites of Veneto and Trentino: Arabba, Passo Pordoi, Canazei, Passo Fedaia and the return trip back to Arabba.
The DBD is a strictly non-competitive event, free of charge and with free access to all cyclists of all levels with all types of bikes (racing bikes, mountain bikes, e-bikes).
The entire route, consisting of two loops, has a total length of 108 km with very significant differences in height and very technical ascents and descents. Each participant is free to decide where to start and how to compose their route. The direction of travel recommended by the organisers is anti-clockwise. For the occasion, the Dolomite passes will be closed to traffic.
For those who are less fit, a day in the saddle is offered along the most scenic roads in the Dolomites between Veneto and South Tyrol. The route can be divided into different routes or follow the two main loops of the track, to make it suitable for your own preparation and characteristics.
