Mount Velo - S.Barbara Pass - Viote
Almost 3000 metres of steep gradient for one of the toughest routes we offer for road bikes. Three climbs, each one harder than the one before, complete an extremely popular loop, a particular favourite with climbers.
<p>This itinerary proposes a variant of the classic Mount Velo loop, upping both its distance and its difficulty. After climbing to the <strong>Santa Barbara Pass</strong>, we descend towards Ronzo-Chienis, but instantly make our way back up again through another pass, nestled in the vegetable gardens of the Val di Gresta. At the <strong>Bordala Pass,</strong> a long downhill section begins, leading to the foot of Mount Bondone, the mountain overlooking Trento. Another ascent leads to the Viote basin of <strong>Mount Bondone</strong>, at an altitude of 1570 metres. We return to the Garda area through the Cavedine Valley.</p>
<p>A very taxing route designed for those who like a challenge. Three climbs for true grimpeurs, rewarded by three very pleasant downhill stretches. Those who might want to spare themselves the last uphill section can return through the Lagarina Valley but should follow the specific itinerary provided for this route.</p>
