From Cortina d’Ampezzo to Calalzo di Cadore and from Cortina to Cimabanche, it’s possible doing it in two sections.
The Dolomite Bike Road, along the Former railway, is suitable for all cyclists, and perfect for a family outing with children.
The journey unfolds in an untainted landscape animated by the beauty of nature and by delightful architectonic souvenirs as you cross bridges, skirt lakes and pass through tunnels, woods and old railway stations, some of them restored as snack bars.
Between Cortina d’Ampezzo and Cimabanche (with the option of an extra 9 mi / 15 km to Dobbiaco), the trail climbs gently on an asphalted surface which then becomes a gravel road and winds through the tunnels of the historic Dolomites railway. For children the best option is to take the opposite direction, gently downhill from Cimabanche to Cortina d’Ampezzo. In summer, a bus servicewith bike transport facilities can take you up to Passo Cimabanche.
On reaching Calalzo, visitors can head for the frequent bus service with bicycle transport facilities to return to the point of departure.
