After an initial flat and bucolic stretch following the river Adige, you reach Ala where, just beyond the small church of San Pietro in Bosco, the road to Sega di Ala begins. Along the way, a glimpse of the Sabbionara d'Avio Castle will give you the opportunity to stop for a while, while near Malga Riondera, where the climb gives a little respite, you can stop to catch your breath and admire the view over the Vallagarina. Then back on the saddle and off to Passo Fittanze! The climb is difficult, especially due to the challenging slope in some sections, but the satisfaction on arrival is great! Arrived in Peri, the return is made again along the bike path, up to the starting point. The Lessinia plateau, with its uncontaminated nature, will enter your heart ... you will surely return to explore it along its many paths, on foot, by Mountain Bike or with snowshoes, or to visit the places linked to the memory of the Great War

Turn-by-turn directions

After 21 km of slight slight slope up to Sdruzzinà di Ala, climb up to Passo Fittanze along a demanding 14 km climb and 1,100 meters of elevation gain with sections over 20% gradient. About halfway up the slope, at Malga Riondera, there is a short slight slope. Arrived at the pass, after 14 km downhill, you reach Fosse, from where, after 1 km uphill again, you start to descend again for 9 km and 700 m in altitude reaching Peri.
