Always starting from the Hotel Avisio, we get on the bike we head towards Predazzo, from here towards Passo Rolle and San Martino di Castrozza Towards Transacqua along the SP81, the village is located between the National Park of the Belluno Dolomites and the Natural Park Peneveggio Pale di San Martino.

From Pieve di Soligo, taking the SS13, we arrive in Conegliano where you can taste a glass of excellent Prosecco d.o.c. but only one I recommend!
Every year, in June, in the heart of the historic center of Conegliano there is the event of the Dama Castellana, a game of checkers with characters in Renaissance costume and in September, in the most characteristic places of the city is played the Enodama, a checkers tournament in which the pieces are replaced by glasses of white and red wine. The aims of Enodama are the socialization and enhancement of the productive companies of the territory.
From here we continue our journey passing through Cordignano, until we reach Vittorio Veneto.
From Vittorio Veneto we continue the journey, up to Ponte nelle Alpi towards Belluno and Sedico, for the SR204 through the Belluno Dolomites Park you get to Agordo and Cencenighe.
