Riding the Sella Ronda in April

These fabulous photographs are from Jered Gruber, Assistant Editor of He was on a ride of the "Sella Ronda" on April 24th.

The Sella Ronda is a 4 pass loop in the Dolomites. The 4 passes you climb are:
Passo Sella, 2.244 m altitude
Passo Gardena, 2.137 m
Passo Pordoi, 2.242 m
Passo Campolongo, 1.875 m

By the way, "Sella Ronda Bike Day" is July 12th this year, the 55-70 km loop (ed. note: distance corrected after investigation based on comment by Sprocketboy) will be closed for motorized traffic and will be accessible only for cyclists. You can start from the valley you prefer: Alta Badia, Val Gardena, Val di Fassa or Arabba. I personally like Corvara so I would start there.

  2. The map suggests that it is a 55 km circuit, rather than 37.4 km. In any event, it looks like a wonderful ride and I am putting it on my list for this summer.
