From the junction with the Ronda Piccola at Sella di Calino, it continues until Vespana, goes down along the Lomasona and arrives in Prial from where, by setting a low gear, begins the climb to S. Silvestro up to Malga Vigo (1079 m.a.s.l.) where, the panorama of the Brenta Dolomites and the Adamello Mountains is extraordinary.
Up there, Cima Tosa and the Carè Alto glacier (3500 meter high) will block the riders with their incomparable beauty.
The Ronda Grande offers the opportunity to challenge considerable ascents, descents as well as to test different terrains: from asphalt to gravel sections, pedaling through places such as Dos del Clef and S. Pietro. Once in Novino the Ronda Grande takes the same road as the Ronda Piccola to the finish line.
