Passo delle Erbe, Car Free on June 28th
For the first time, during Börz-Plose Bike Day, the beautiful Passo delle Erbe will be open to cyclists car-free. This is a non-competitive event.
"Börz"» is the original Ladin name for Passo delle Erbe, which is located at the foot of Mount Putia with its magnificent view. The different access roads to it from Antermoia in Badia valley, Luson, S. Pietro in Funes valley and S. Andrea create a perfectly round circuit.
The most challenging climb starts in Luson towards Passo delle Erbe with a height difference of 1.023 m in 14 km and a maximum gradient of 15 %.
The roads will be closed to all motorized vehicles for 61.8 km between 9.30 am and 3.00 pm. Everyone is invited to take part in this cycling event and is free to choose where and when to start. The only suggestion is to cycle possibly clockwise.
