If you love MTB, you've found the perfect itinerary! The Dolomites cycling route is about 48 kilometers long, from Alba di Canazei to Molina di Fiemme riding along the Avisio river. You can also choose to run on just one or two stages of the whole itinerary, maybe even with your kids, as there are no difficult or hard slopes! In fact, if you choose to cycle in this direction, the track will mostly be downhill and to go back to the starting point you can use the Shuttle Bike Express Fassa Fiemme

The track is perfect for MTBs and e-bikes, but you can also choose to walk.

The MTB itinerary starts in the Fassa Valley. From Alba di Canazei you go south following the directions to Canazei, where you take the unpaved road Cercenà. Then you run along the Avisio creek, meeting on your way the villages of Campitello di Fassa, Fontanazzo, Campestrin and Mazzin. 

The cycling route goes on downhill towards Pera di Fassa and Fraine. From here you need to ride on a paved stretch of road with cars in the direction of Pozza, where you can find the bikes-only route again. You are by now in the lower part of Val di Fassa and the scenery is definitely one of the best: around you, the peaks of the Latemar and of Catinaccio.

The next stop is Soraga and the slope to reach Palua, where you will admire the entire Fassa Valley and the route stages you've just completed. Looking up to the sky you'll see the Catinaccio, Sassolungo, Pordoi and Monzoni mountains. 

Once the slope is over, you start going back down to Moena, the Alpine Pearl you'll be crossing to complete the track. Once here, you keep going towards Piana di Moena, Predazzo and finally... the Fiemme Valley!
