Beautiful and scenic..Lusia is just spectacular,its wirth doing the entire route and then riding or catching the bus back... Food at Malga Bocche is awesome and so are the staff. I would recommend eating there!

Getting there
This ride starts in the town of Castelir, at a place called El Zirmo. This is where the ski lifts are for Bellamonte-Lusia are. Just before you get to the end of the road where the ski lifts are, there is a small car park on the left, you can park there and on the right you see the sign for Tour 232. Follow this through the forest, a climb which will warm you up well, then a nice sweet descent and then a series of hair pin bends for about 5km climbing to an intersection, turn right for Malga Bocche, great place for a break/lunch and some awesomely cool donkeys running around.



Turn back on the same track always going straight along the crest of the mountain towards Passo Lusia.. with great views of Pellegrino Valley and Moena. From here you descend down , fast, to Bellamonte. Here the GPS route takes you to Sottosassa (awesome place where you can rock climb) and into Predazzo.



If you have had enough you can turn left and take the road for 5km back to the road which takes you to Castelir/ ElZirmo.



If you go to Predazzo, you can then catch the Bellamont Express back to Bellamonte.

    Spectacular ride! The views from Lusia Pass and from Malga Bocche over the Pale di San Martino are just amazing. The access from El Zirmo is not too bad, just be sure to save your legs.. once at the top you are ok, easy to move along the crest of the mountain.. Downhill is awesome!
