On the way of the Giro d'Italia, a classic road bike tour: the Passo Manghen

23.7 km

This route was cycled through during various editions of the Giro d’Italia - the Italian national cycling competitions - and it is featured by mild grades. Once you reach Telve, the road follows the left orographic riverside of Maso. The first part crosses thick pine forests, till Baessa. The most difficult parts are on Km 20 and Km 22, where the grade is close to 14%. But you will be close to the finishing line! After the last effort, at Km 23.7 a sudden slop will welcome you and the ascent is over: the Manghen Pass is there!

Safety information

Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.

Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.

Always wear your helmet.

Make sure your front and rear lights are working.

Put out your arm to give advance warning of your intention to change position and before you do anything, check there are no vehicles coming up behind you.

Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!

Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.

If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file.
