Val di Sole seen from above

And what a vista! This is our favorite track because it starts from Ortisè and from there the view over Val di Sole is simply enchanting. But there is also another reason, Ortisè to us means family, it is part of the Monroc people’s history and we always come back gladly here to breathe a relaxed air, fresh and full of sun. The small village of Ortisè has in fact the fortune of being in the sun from sunrise to sunset. Is it maybe this the secret of this pleasant atmosphere?? You just have to discover it and exploring it by bike is even more exciting.

Ready?! Let's go!

Start from Daolasa, with the guys of the Val di Sole Bike Center that will carry your bike up to Ortisè. From there it starts the downhill with the Brenta Dolomite on the background. You will cross a wood of centuries-old larches, a magical place, where you will meet a larch aged over 700 years. Then it starts a long single track of more than 9 km with a difference in height of more than 1000 meters downhill. The arrival is at the village of Mestriago, few meters far from Monroc.
