Mountain bike tour that develops around Cavedago, there are no particular technical features, but there are two intense climbs, although quite short. Very natural itinerary full of pleasant rest areas surrounded by nature.

Author’s recommendation

Tour suitable for any type of rider provided with a good workout and a discrete driving technique, we recommend the use of an Ebike to the less trained people.

Restaurant "La Tana dell'Ermellino" is a great place for a typical lunch or for a short break to regain energy.

Along the way there are several fountains to stock up on water.

Safety information

Rules DPB:  http://www.dolomitipaganellabike.com/trentino/en/about-us/rules

1 Ride Open Trails
Respect trail and road closures — ask a land manager for clarification if you are uncertain about the status of a trail. Do not trespass on private land. Obtain permits or other authorization as required. Be aware that bicycles are not permitted in areas protected as state or federal Wilderness

2 Leave No Trace
Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Don't cut switchbacks. Be sure to pack out at least as much as you pack in.

3 Control Your Bicycle
Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all bicycle speed regulations and recommendations, and ride within your limits.

4 Yield Appropriately
Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill-only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.

5 Never Scare Animals
Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you. When passing horses, use special care and follow directions from the horseback riders (ask if uncertain). Running cattle and disturbing wildlife are serious offenses.

6 Plan Ahead
Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Strive to be self-sufficient: keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.

 

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Destination

Cavedago

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the church of Cavedago, take the main road towards Spormaggiore, after the "Famiglia Cooperativa", you'll see on the left a fountain flanked by a paved road, follow the road until you come to a junction, turn right on a trail and continue until you arrive on a paved road, then turn right. Cross the SS421, you'll pass next to the "Bottega del Formaggio" and, going straight until the intersection, turn right and take the next road on the left. Now you have to face a steep climb that will end with a crossroads, turn right and follow the trail on a slight slope, then keep right downhill and finally U-turn sharply left uphill getting onto the path linking Cavedago to Andalo. From here the route continues towards Andalo with a climb of about 300 meters pretty hard on asphalt. After another climb cross a dry river on your right and continue up to a junction, follow the path on the right and then turn immediately left down in the woods through a trail not well marked until you'll reach the S.S. 421 in loc. "Lavezol". Cross the road and ride for 50 meters to the left and then turn right along a road that will take you directly to loc. "Priori" (Tana dell'Ermellino). Past the football field and follow the concrete road on the right towards Cavedago until you meet SS421, turn first left, then immediately right passing along the cemetery, follow the road down and at the first junction turn left and then turn back right along the SS421 that will take you directly to the center of Cavedago.
