Extended weekend in the Dolomites

Hello everyone!

Having 4 days free, between 4th and 7th of June, I decided to spend them crossing as many passes in the Dolomites . Pretty easy plan: leaving Thursday morning from Augsburg - direction south, riding a lot, camping all three nights and coming back on Sunday evening.

A short overview you can see here:


If someone is interested to join, at least for a couple of km, would be great. Also drinking one beer together would be perfect; just tell me where and when.

Recommendations, advises and places not to be missed are welcomed

A bit early for me, unfortunately, but here's a goal for you.

A one-day ride starting and ending at the Al Forte in Arabba - about 8-9 hours elapsed:

Campolongo
Gardena
Sella
Pordoi
Fedaia
Costalunga
Nigra
Lavaze
Oclini
Pramadiccio
San Pellegrino
Valles
Rolle
Cereda
Aurine
Franche
Duran
&
Staulanza

I would have picked up Giau, Falzarego and Valparola, but there were active T-Storms at altitude (I don't do that).

I hope to try again this year, and think that I can add Tre Croce & Cimabanche (east of Cortina) to the list.

Ya gotta have goals. Besides, a 23 Pass Day would be a nice 70th birthday present to myself.

Thanks a lot. I'll point these on my map. Anyway, a small change in my plan: got an invitation for one mountain bike day in Saalbach, Austria (seems to be e very popular place for this); it was on my way, so I'll make a stop..these means that I'll be in Cortina d'Ampezzo on Friday evening.

My invitations are still available

Would be a really nice celebration for you tell us when and maybe we can join to drink for this

I fly out on the 17th, and pick up my bike in Heidelberg on the 18th. You'll be long gone by then.

But I do appreciate the invitation.

Not able to get there this weekend, but if the weather is fine don't lose Giau and Tre Croci/Cimabanche (near Tre Cime di Lavaredo!), have a nice trip
