The Alta Badia valley, the green valley at the heart of the Dolomites and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has been a popular destination for leisure cyclists for years. At first it was racing bike enthusiasts who loved the mountain passes, but nowadays the Dolomites region in South Tyrol is also a magnet for mountain bikers.

Freeride bikers love riding the Frara single track. The trail begins on the Gardena Pass and goes down the ski slope as far as Colfosco and the valley station of the Plans-Frara gondola lift. You have to be able to handle jumps, bumps and bends over a distance of about 3 km with a difference in altitude of 470 m.
