This route is one of the most beloved route for bikers. The first part, till Castello Tesino - also known as Strada del Morelo - is very picturesque because the road curves have been dug in the limestone rocks, which mark the underlying canyon of the Grigno river. We then reach Castello Tesino, a charming village with ancient history, where the tour becomes mostly flat for a few kilometers, before resuming the ascent passing through the woods of fir, larch and maple of Monte Agaro. Higher up the landscape turns into the pastures of the Brocon Pass, where there are several alpine huts and some hotel-restaurants where you can have a nice restorative break with traditional dishes prepared with local products, before returning to the valley. The return is along the same road.


Author’s recommendation

Don't miss a visit to the alpine huts to taste the handmade cheese and the beautiful view on the Pale di San Martino from Malga Arpaco.

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.

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.
