highlights

From Predazzo, following the Travignolo stream you reach the reddish porphyry walls, some natural pools and a very spectacular suspended bridge on the river. Once we enter the fairytale Val Venegia we will be surrounded by the seductive beauty of Pale di San Martino. A refreshing break at the Malga Juribello which offers typical local products and we will find ourselves in the centuries-old Paneveggio Natural Park.

Biking to Sottosassa – Paneveggio is top class choice in Dolomites if you want an ebike tour characterized by unique scenery and splendid views. We start from Predazzo and ride the ebike along the Travignolo stream to reach the Lizata Bridge, the reddish porphyry walls, some natural pools and finally the 40 meters long suspended bridge.

The Travignolo stream and the green woods will accompany us to the fairy-tale Val Venegia with its pastures splendidly dominated by the profile of the Pale. Mulaz, Focobon, Bureloni and Cimon della Pala rise majestically. A refreshing break at the Malga Juribello will offer us the opportunity to taste typical local products and rest before getting back on our e bike.

On the way back we will experience an electrifying adventure in the Paneveggio Natural Park, where spruces make up almost 90% of the trees in the forest. It is said that it was Stradivari himself who wandered around the forest of Paneveggio in search of the most suitable trees for the construction of his violins: centuries-old spruces whose wood, thanks to its particular capacity for “resonance”, provided the ideal raw material for the construction of the sound boxes. The wood of the spruce is in fact particularly elastic, it transmits sound better and its lymphatic channels are like tiny organ pipes that create resonance.

This wood stands out for its lightness and for the richness of the harmonic vibrations that it manages to transmit to the entire musical instrument and is therefore appreciated by numerous luthiers.

This e bike tour ends with passage over the suspended bridge and a suggestive tour around Lake Paneveggio.

This e bike tour is ideal for cycling in the Dolomites in a highly fascinating context, crossing varied and different landscapes and requires a minimum of aerobic training considering the length of the route and the climbing up.
