Wonderful ascent, affordable gradients, quite busy in summer and on weekends when the weather is good.

Salita stupenda, pendenze abbordabili, piuttosto trafficata nel periodo estivo e nei weekend di bel tempo.

3rd climb in sellaronda clockwise, the friendliest in terms of percentages, only some very small parts with tougher gradients towards the end. great views. the tarmac seems new and there are some parts (around 1-2km) a bit delimited for cyclists.
the bad part of this climb is the descend towards plan de gralba where the tarmac is awful

Pleasant ascent, with pluses in the view of Corvara and the mountains, minus the traffic between buses and cars. Fairly steady ascent with nice hairpin bends. Only a short uphill section has a mini bike lane

Salita piacevole, con plus della vista su corvara e sulle montagne, minus invece il traffico tra bus e auto. Salita abbastanza regolare con bei tornanti. Solo un breve tratto in salita ha una mini corsia per le bici

Sublime views, right from the start in the village of Colfosco. You don't know where to look, so much to see. The climb itself is also a treat: mild percentages, a good series of hairpin bends in the second half (you can see them nicely) and good tarmac. In June 2022, at least two steeper sections (one in a hairpin bend) were still unpaved due to work on the road surface. Together with the Passo Sella, this is the most beautiful climb in the Sella Ronda counterclockwise.

Subliem uitzicht, al meteen vanaf de start in het dorp Colfosco. Je weet niet waar je kijken moet, zoveel te zien. De klim zelf is ook een traktatie: milde percentages, een goede reeks haarspeldbochten in de tweede helft (je ziet ze mooi liggen) en prima asfalt. In juni 2022 waren nog minstens twee steilere stroken (een in een haarspeldbocht) onverhard door werkzaamheden aan het wegdek. Samen met de Passo Sella is dit de mooiste beklimming in de Sella Ronda tegen de klok in.

Quite a tough climb, where a recent landslide in the upper half of the climb has led to a diversion of the road and thus a very steep (unpaved) section that completely kills your rhythm. Furthermore, a typical Dolomites climb: good tarmac, many hairpin bends and fantastic views.

Behoorlijk stevige klim, waar een recente aardverschuiving in de bovenste helft heeft gezorgd voor een verlegging van de weg en daarmee een flink steile (onverharde) passage die je ritme volledig om zeep helpt. Verder een typische Dolomieten-klim: goed asfalt, veel haarspeldbochten en fantastische uitzichten.

Beautiful not too long Passo Gardena cycled as 3rd slope in the Sella ronda that for me started in Canazei
(counter clockwise Pordoï/Campolongo/Gardena/Sella).
After the leisurely ride out of tourist Corvara, the wide and sometimes busy road climbs uphill via 19 unnumbered hairpin bends. The pine trees along the mountainside become gradually scarcer and the panoramas all the more beautiful. You can see the tourist crowded top between the Pizes de Cier and the Sella group from far away.
Beautiful pass crossing with 360° Dolomites panorama!

Prachtige niet te lange Passo Gardena op gefietst als 3de helling in de Sella ronda die voor mij startte in Canazei
(tegenwijzerszin Pordoï/Campolongo/Gardena/Sella).
Na het gezapig uit fietsen van het toeristische Corvara klimt de brede soms drukke weg zonder extremen via 19 ongenummerde haarspeldbochten bergop. De naaldbomen langs de bergflank worden geleidelijk schaarser en de panorama's des te mooier. Je ziet reeds van ver de toeristisch drukke top tussen de Pizes de Cier en de Sellagroep.
Mooie pasovergang met 360° Dolomieten panorama!
