This is a classic of the Alpe Cimbra, one of the most important and demanding paths of Trentino, which gives the name to the international competition. It passes between the seven fortress of the First World War, between accents and descents and amazing views!

The 100 Km dei Forti is an important and well-known MTB competition, with its 100 km of climb and descent through dirty roads and paths throughout the seven fortress of the First Word War. You can make this permanent parkour always, not only during the competition. One thing is sure: it is a strong MTB-excursion but one of the beautiful in Trentino. There are kilometres and kilometres of emotions; between wide panoramas, climb and descent, passing through the Bike Chalet dell’Alpe Cimbra, reference points, even in case of a breakdown.
