Mountain Bike - Zoldo Alto (Alleghe)

Difficultydifficult Length34,31 km

We start from the village of Alleghe and first of all pass the Ice Arena  to take the lakeside route to where it merges onto Corso Italia, where first we turn right towards the centre; next to the municipal building we take the uphill community road that goes up to Piani di Pezzè pedalling on asphalt for 5.23 km with a 496 m change in altitude, a 9,5% incline that is long and hard, passing through some houses in Frena and Coi, past the arrival station for the cable car lift, from the parking lot we take a slight downhill towards the point of Fontanabona enjoying a few hundred basically flat metres. Passing the namesake refreshment bar, from 1462 m we pedal up along a difficult climb that in 2.84 km will take us to 1827 m at F.lla  Alleghe with an average 13% gradient on a stretch so hard to climb  by bicycle that it is called “ the Civetta Wall”; It is about 400 metres with a steep incline close to 24%, and is recognisable due to the surface, which is dirt and old, decayed  asphalt. Once we get over the wall the inclines are a little easier to  Forcella; when we come off the other side we head right towards the dairy malga Pioda a few metres away and we start descending again following an easy, fun dirt road with a little slippery surface towards our next objective, the village of Pecol Vecchio, then we follow the dirt road marked  564 and get to the junction for Redolet, we take the single track on the right and go down for 1.6 km covering the challenging   -338 m of altitude change paying close attention to the highly technical passage at the end of the descent; if you take on this descent after a rainy day the surface could be insidiously muddy and slippery.  We are just outside the conglomerate of Pecol Vecchio and we go right to go up to  Pian del Crep, a place  at an altitude of  1741 m and we follow the dirt road for 3.55 km and  346 m  climb, that is an average incline of  9,7% with some passages that are quite hard and sometimes complicated due to the road surface. When we arrive at scenic Pian del Crep we head downhill towards Mareson, our next point; first we go down the “Cristellin” ski slope over gravel and grass and then we pass on to a challenging path through a forest until we arrive to the bottom of the valley after riding negative  - 416 metres of altitude change. We take off once more from 1332 m and the typical "tabià" structures in Mareson and on an asphalt road we climb back up to the village of  Coi, just out of the conglomerate of houses we abandon the asphalt to find a dirt road marked  473; then once we pass  Casere it becomes  498, on this stretch we come to the famous “ Conconi Wall” from the first editions of the Civetta Superbike event, with its 22% altitude change in a little more than 600 metres of length, an impressively challenging stretch that will take us up  another 468 m until we come to a crossroads with a  single track with a rough, rocky surface, that will take us to Palafavera down a quite harsh, very difficult tract until we pass the namesake camping grounds. We are at the 1511 m of the flat plain for Palafavera and we take the dirt road from the parking lot in front of the chair lift towards Val Posedera for a light climb over 3.3 km and  a 193 m altitude difference on first a dirt road and then a path in the woods with an insidious surface that will bring us to the asphalt under the dairy malga Boi Vescovà, which we pass on a slight uphill; right after there is a short, more challenging stretch until we get to the point at Col Fioret  (1832 m). From here a few hundred metres separate us from Prà della Costa from where we head down towards Val d’Aier  for about  1.5 km with quite a challenging negative altitude change of  -205 m, a descent with a couple of very technical and complicated passages. After passing the  “Strente” point we head towards our next objective, “the village of Fernazza“ about  1.4 km away with  -70 m altitude change. Passing this we continue the descent on the same trail and after covering about six hundred metres we come to the hamlet of Coi. Now we are on the home stretch, only 700 metres  at 9% in descent over asphalt and dirt to get to Corso Venezia in Alleghe, where we conclude our climbing day.
