Tour at Forcella Lerosa
Description from ”Mountain biking in the Dolomites” book (Mauro Tumler):
For those intending to spend a longer holiday in the Dolomites, this tour is an ideal cycling introduction to the area. Most of the tour runs on the meticulously sign-posted Cortina–Dobbiaco cycle route, while the steep climb on technical terrain to the Forcella Lerosa requires a good amount of stamina. Reward is a nice single-track section with tight switchbacks from the Forcella to the Malga Ra Stua.
Just the landscape is reason enough to get out on a bike. even the physical effort is contained with an 810 metres climb. this tour derives its name from the Forcella Lerosa, located on a high altitude alp at the beginning of the Val de Gotres. A little wooden cross commemorates an Austrian military cemetery from the Big War. the Forcella Lerosa is a popular passage for cyclists to get to Marebbe in Alto Adige, riding through the Val Salata and the Rifugio Sennes.
