Start: Corvara, Dolomites, Italy

The Sellaronda circuit is a great ride that skirts the Sella mountain group in the Dolomites. It is approximately 50km in length with 1630m in altitude gain. The circuit traverses four mountain passes - Campolongo (1875m), Pordoi (2241m), Sella (2230m) and Gardena (2121m) with each pass providing amazing views of the Sella Massif.
We started the ride at Corvara and headed in an anti-clockwise direction, though any of the villages enroute could be the starting location and either direction can be taken. From Corvara this ride heads straight up so there is no time for a warm-up! Not only is the ride blessed with the spectacle of the Dolomites but also pine forests and colourful wildflowers. At each pass there are refugios for food or drink. The route has moderate traffic in sections, particularly the Gardena pass. Twice per year (usually May and September) there is a famous car free day, 'The sellaRonda bike day' (http://www.sellarondabikeday.com). Just a quick note on putting things into perspective - the Arabba tourism website describes the Sellaronda ride as 'easy'. Unless you train in the Dolomites, you may not find the 1630m of altitude gain over 50km easy!
