Caracoi, even the name sounds musical. In the tiny villages of Caracoi Agoin and Caracoi Cimai memory is indulged. Caracoi Cimai offers fabulous views of the Civetta. The start goes to quite a steep dirt road through the woods and a path that goes to Saviner di Laste. The tour sets off from Alleghe to get an idea of the lake and its environs and follows the road precisely along the lake towards Masarè. Here we turn right to ride around the lake on an easy to follow asphalt road. After a slight climb, we come to the village of Saviner along the gravelly path, with a slight downhill that then becomes flatter along the Cordevole river to Santa Maria delle Grazie. At Saviner turn left and we follow the asphalt lane which can sometimes become quite steep, until we come to the tiny village of Caracoi Agoin.
For the descent we will need stable braking skills. The route until we reach Pezzè is steep but technically simple. At Pezzè we veer on a short path that goes into a forest and then becomes wider. Further down we come to the Cordevole river and take the almost flat, dirt bike path after Santa Maria delle Grazie. Here we turn onto the suspension bridge, follow the bike path to the right of the road and take up the route towards Alleghe again. The Caracoi Tour is a half day itinerary that requires average skills and physical conditioning.
