A classic for the cyclists. The four-pass tour Sellaronda, is certainly one of the absolute highlights in the life of a cyclist. Among the racing bike tours, the route is considered of medium difficulty with a length of 58 km and almost 1,800 meters of elevation gain. Once a year, usually in the middle of summer, the tour around the Sella Group belongs entirely to the cyclists.
