Fusine - Valmadre - Passo Dordona

Alpi Orobie - Fusine

From: Fusine
To: Passo Dordona
Mountain bike
Uphill: 1775m
Downhill: 1775m

Medium/high pedal assist will be needed due to length and steepness of the path, especially on the rough second part, so a spare battery is a must. Both factors can be decreased by driving to Valmadre (with permits issued in Fusine). The first uphill part is all tarmacked, with lots of hairpins through the woods and a steep average gradient. It leads to the village of Valmadre at 1180 m asl. From here, a rough track dips into the depths of the valley, with easier climbs for a while. The twelfth kilometre marks the beginning of the hard climb with hairpins and ramps up the righthand slope: the terrain gets looser and stonier. Before the last diagonal to the left, which brings you to the pass, you go through Casera Dordona, which has a welcoming mountain refuge. Beyond the pass, a rough track drops to Foppolo and the province of Bergamo.
