Ciclovia delle Dolomiti (Trentino)

This cycleway is also known as the Ciclabile Val di Fiemme Val di Fassa - in fact I think this is the official title but the local tourist author­ities have given it a snappier name. The cycleway provides an important option if you are heading to or from the Dolomites. It links Molino-di-Fiemme with Canazei which is within cycling distance of the Sella Ronda and the Marmolada glacier. Other major passes are within striking distance of the route.

The vast majority of the cycleway is tarmacked and when I rode it in 2012 they were tarmacking another stretch. It is also pretty much entirely traffic-free.

If you're planning to do this as a day-ride then I'd suggest taking the Bici-Bus to Canazei and then riding the cycleway downhill. Although the gradients are pretty gentle so plenty of people do it in the uphill direction.

Options

The cycleway provides a huge number of road connec­tions heading eastwards. Heading westwards the SS612 provides a reasonably quiet option through the wine country of the Val di Cembra and the town of Lavis where you can pick up the Ciclabile Valle dell’Adige.

Links open in new windows unless you ‘save as’ etc.

The maps are in two versions: A4 portrait format - for printing and maybe also for viewing on an iPad, and A5 for smaller tablets and smart­phones. As far as eReaders are concerned so far I’ve not managed to get them to work on a Nook - but you may have more success with other devices.
