Passes are a special case. And that's why every racing biker will eventually start "collecting" passes. It's difficult to explain why it's so wonderful to push yourself to your limits for hours and, after finally achieving the pass, to continue even though you are nearly exhausted. It's a mystery. In any event, you will have plenty of opportunity to test your limits here. The most breathtaking passes of the Dolomites are right outside our front door. How about a roundtrip visit to the Sella Ronda? That's no problem when
you're staying at the Hotel Maria. Or the Manghen Pass: It's at least as challenging as the Stilfser Gap, but not as well known. Fedaia, Giau, or Valles are a few more interesting options. Your host, Christoph Kofler, is intimately familiar with the best trails and can provide you with all the advice and recommendations you need. But one thing is certain: You won't be able to conquer all of these passes in a single vacation. Unless you stay for at least a solid month.
