Sellaronda Bike Day

Sellaronda Bike Day

The cycling sport event for everyone on 22 June 2019

A date no cyclist should ever miss out on: 22 June 2019 marks the Sellaronda Bikeday, a cycling competition for everyone taking place on the Sella Group, a yearly siren’s call for countless cycling enthusiasts from near and far. The Sellaronda Bikeday is a celebration of everything cycling as the roads on the Sellaronda will be closed to cars, allowing cyclists to take over. The whole event boasts 53 km, while a 1,600 m elevation gain awaits those willing to complete the whole distance.

A family event

The Sellaronda Bike Day isn’t just a cycling race. No, quite the opposite: cyclists of all ages and levels will have the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful cycling tour featuring unique views on traffic-free roads, as the Sellaronda and its passes around the Sella Group will be closed to cars. Registration is free and there won’t be any timekeeping.

Signing up isn’t compulsory; however, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t follow some rules. The roads will be closed exclusively between 8.30 a.m. and 3.30 p.m. You can visit the dedicated online page to view the exact part of the road which will be closed. We recommend you cycle anticlockwise and stick to the right side of the road. The organiser expressly asks you to drive carefully and to adapt your speed even when descending to ensure that you don’t risk the well-being of other participants. After all, among the participants there will also be families, professional cyclists, unicycles, tandems and other unique forms.

Different routes and stops will be available depending on your needs and personal preferences. However, you can start your day in any of the valley’s passes: Alta Badia, Arraba, Val di Fassa and Dolomites Val Gardena. The organiser will also have some info booths at the following locations: Passo Pordoj, Arraba, Pordoi/Passo Sella crossroads and Miramonti crossroad.

You can also stop for a bite to eat and recharge your batteries in restaurants and cafes along the route. We also recommend you stop for a picnic along the route if you are out and about with your family or with a large group of friends.
