Leaving the Ronda Grande route at Malga Vigo, the Ronda Extrema continues to Cadregoni, Naone and Duson.
It will be the Adamello glacier that will stop even the most competitive bikers for a moment. Up there, at about 3500 meters of altitude, pages of history have been written related to the war events.
At Malga Valbona there is the highest point of the Ronda to overcome, Prà dei Muci, where on the adjacent ridge, is located the famous “Becco dell’Aquila”. Half of the Ronda is done, the trail passes from Pozza Bella on the same route as the Ronda Grande to Semont where, instead, the Grande continues downhill and the Extrema returns to ask for a last uphill effort to arrive at S. Giovanni’s church.
In Coste starts the downhill to La Selva, Dos del Clef and continues on the same final section of the Ronda Grande to the finish line in Riva del Garda.
The Ronda Grande is recommended for ambitious and advanced bikers.
