Over the last few years, San Vigilio and its surroundings have been scouted for ideal bike trails in collaboration with Uli Stanciu, one of the best qualified European experts in such matters.
By now more than 600km of trail for bikers of all levels of ability have been outlined and mapped with GPS technology. The Dolomites are among the most beautiful sceneries to be discovered by MTB and San Vigilio is one of the best known stage ends of the “Transalp Challenge”, the most famous and demanding MTB stage race of the Alps. Bikers and bike freaks are supported by road books, GPS trails and trail descriptions with lots of detailed information.
Most trails are located in the immediate surroundings of San Vigilio or in the Nature Park Fanes Senes Braies, where most mountain refuges are specialized in accommodating bikers for the night. There is also a trail up to Plan de Corones, the finish of a Giro d’Italia stage in 2006, which offers a breathtaking 360° view upon the Dolomites and the Alps.
