No engines, no noises, no rush. More than 50 kilometers of paved roads prohibited to cars and motorcycles. All this ingredients make the Börz-Plose Bike Day an event not to be missed for the bike lovers.
Sunday, June 28th for the first time in the Isarco valley, in the heart of Trentino Alto Adige, cyclists will have the chance to enjoy a “car free” day around Passo delle Erbe, admiring the extraordinary Odle mountain group. A dream for the two wheels lovers who will be free to ride and face climbs and descends living the Dolomites spirit.
The roads between the Dolomite’s passages are among the most spectacular roads in the world. And the Börz-Plose Bike Day (Börz is the Ladin name of Passo delle Erbe, an ancient transportation route between Val di Funes, lateral of the Isarco valley, and Val Badia) represents a strongly symbolic and demonstrative message in terms of sustainability.
There is much more to be admired: the path is a perfect circuit at the foot of the Sass Putia, with its characteristic sharp and audacious shape, and the Odle mountain group. The accessing points are from Antermoia (Val Badia), Luson, San Pietro (Val di Funes) and St. Andrea, at the foot of the Plose (starting point at the Plose sky lifts), upstream of Bressanone.
The organizers want to underline that it’s not a competition, and it’s not a real cycle touristic meeting, but it’s just a day forbidden to engine vehicles and exclusively reserved to cyclists in some time slots (mostly from 9,30 a.m. to 3 p.m.), along a 51 kilometers long path between the lowest altitude of 900 meters and the highest of 2000 meters, with a suggested starting point from St. Andrea.
Each cyclist has a different spirit during the Börz-Plose Bike Day but something is sure: it doesn’t matter your speed or the path that you are doing, the view is guaranteed. In the silence of the ride you will pass through green grazing, thick conifer bushes and ancient farmsteads. Along the path you can stop in one of the many mountain refuges to enjoy Sud Tyrol traditional flavors.
The event is in collaboration with the touristic associations of Bressanone, Luson and Val di Funes in the Isarco valley, and San Martino in Badia. This is a suitable and sustainable area for cycling as the many cycle paths demonstrate, including the long one of Brenner-Bolzano that is 100 kilometers long (on the Monaco of Bavaria-Venice international direction, and connected to the Pusteria cycle path).
The Börz-Plose Bike Day is free and open to everyone. To know the itinerary and the recommended times visit the website: www.valleisarco.info
