This loop route runs along the Cordevole stream and through the village of Alleghe, where the majestic Mount Civetta is reflected on the lake. The climb starts after the town of Falcade, heading toward the San Pellegrino pass, with slopes of up to 15% to be tackled with your head high, so as not to miss the beautiful view of the surrounding Alpine pastures. After the descent to Pera di Fassa, if you feel well trained, you can exit the route for a few km and face the climb which leads to the Gardeccia. It is an enchanting place at the foot of the Rosengarten range immersed in such a beautiful Alpine setting, which seems impossible to reach it with a racing bike. If, instead, you do not want to face the 17% gradient of the Gardeccia ascent, you can continue on the normal route towards Canazei and then towards the Pordoi pass, also a picturesque and historic ascent.
