A wonderful, steady climb with great views of the Dolomites. It goes uphill right away at about 8%. Many Ferarris and sports cars driving the Sella Ronda here, but all in all very nice.... read more

A wonderful, steady climb with great views of the Dolomites. It goes uphill right away at about 8%. Many Ferarris and sports cars driving the Sella Ronda here, but all in all very nice.

Ein wunderbarer, gleichmäßger Aufstieg mit tollen Dolomiten-Aussichten. Es geht steig gleich bei ca. 8% bergauf. Viele Ferarris und Sportwagen, die hier die Sella-Ronda fahren, aber alles in allem sehr schön.

Good climb to start the sellaronda anticlockwise from canazei, amazing view all the way up! first part mostly in the shade, in september it was 2 degree celsius, second half very steady and around 7% all the time!
Great!

A nice, steady climb that is never particularly steep, to be done regularly even in summer because it is mostly in the shade of the forest. Magnificent view of the Dolomites once you reach the top! Busy at weekends, recommended on weekdays.

Bella salita costante e mai particolarmente ripida, da fare con regolarità anche d estate perché per buona parte in mezzo al l ombra del bosco. Magnifica la vista sulle dolomiti una volta arrivati in cima!. Trafficato nel weekend, consigliato nei giorni feriali.

Sometimes it is nice to climb a few kilometres in the forest. A bit of shade and the view at the end is all the more surprising. Without having climbed the Pordoi on the other side, you understand why they call this side the easy side. The top is a bit crowded with buildings, but if you walk to the cable car toilets, you can brush up on your historical knowledge with information about a woman who was involved in the pass a century ago. The view at the end of the climb makes it worthwhile. In the descent, I could see that the difficult side must be very spectacular. That one is going on the bucket list!

Soms is het ook wel eens lekker om een paar kilometer in het bos te klimmen. Een beetje schaduw én het uitzicht aan het einde is des te verrassender. Zonder de Pordoi aan de andere zijde te hebben beklommen, snap je wel waarom ze deze zijde de makkelijke zijde noemen. De top is wat druk met gebouwen, maar als je naar de toiletten van de kabelbaan loopt kun je je historische kennis nog wat oppoetsen met informatie over een vrouw een eeuw geleden lang betrokken was bij de pas. Het uitzicht aan het einde van de klim, maakt deze zeker de moeite waard. In de afdaling kon ik wel zien dat de moeilijke kant heel spectaculair moet zijn. Die gaat op de bucketlist!

The 'lesser'side of the Pordoi, but also worthwhile. You cycle most of the time in the forest, but if you then come above the tree line, it is really enjoying. Nowhere really steep

De 'mindere' kant van de Pordoi, maar zeker ook de moeite waard. Je fietst het grootste deel in het bos, maar als je dan boven de boomgrens uitkomt is het wel echt genieten geblazen. Nergens echt steil

The slightly lesser known side of the Pordoi, but almost as nice to climb. Again, a smooth climb with long stretches of 7-8% and flattening turns. The big difference with the climb from Arabba is the forest during most of the climb, which means more shade and less views.

Perfect to combine with the ascent of the east face of the Fedaia.

De iets minder bekende kant van de Pordoi, maar bijna net zo mooi om te beklimmen. Ook hier een goedlopende klim met lange stukken 7-8% en afvlakkende bochten. Groot verschil met de beklimming vanuit Arabba is de bebossing gedurende het grootste deel van de klim, waardoor er meer schaduw en minder uitzicht is.

Perfect te combineren met de beklimming van de oostkant van de Fedaia.

In 2017 did the Pordoi from Arabba; like cycling in an arena. Now from Canazei with a departure from Predazzo; ergo 40 kilometres uphill before you reach the top!
Also this side is beautiful and leaves together with the climb to the Passo Sella. He "runs" nice and it is nowhere really steep. The views remain phenomenal and once at the top you can enjoy the huge rocks around you.

In 2017 de Pordoi vanuit Arabba gedaan; alsof je in een arena fietst. Nu vanaf Canazei met een vertrek vanuit Predazzo; ergo 40 kilometer bergop voordat je op de top bent!
Ook deze kant is mooi en gaat vertrekt samen met de klim naar de Passo Sella. Hij "loopt" lekker en het wordt nergens echt steil. De uitzichten blijven fenomenaal en eenmaal boven is het genieten van de enorme rotspartijen om je heen.

Pordoï pass already climbed twice and especially remembered as the first climb of the famous Sella ronda (counter clockwise).
If you start this classic tour down in the tourist Canazei you "full " Passo Pordoï that incidentally until hairpin bend 14 is parallel with the Sella climb. After the junction you pass between the pines, at the height of the solitary beautifully situated Sporthotel Bellavista, the cable car station of Pecol.
The whole climb has good tarmac and is a steady uphill without extremes with to the end 8 short hairpin bends that bring you above the tree line with panoramic views of the Sella and Marmolada massif.
Summit is very touristy and motley collection of cafes, hotels, parking lots, souvenir shops, and large cable car station.
The bronze memorial plaque to Fausto Coppi and the racing bike monument to Gilberto Simoni emphasize the importance of this climb in the Giro d'Italia.
In summer there can be very busy traffic with especially annoying coaches both up and down. Sella lap is also an excursion topper by bus. Early start is the message!
At another starting point of the Sella Ronda you come down from the Passo Sella to the left the last 7 km of the climb to pick.

Beautiful "easy"climbing side to the top which was the roof (Cima Coppi) of the Tour of Italy several times!

Pordoïpas reeds tweemaal beklommen en vooral bijgebleven als eerste klim van de bekende Sella ronda (tegenwijzerszin).
Als je deze rondrit klassieker beneden start in het toeristische Canazei fiets je de "volledige" Passo Pordoï die trouwens tot haarspeldbocht 14 gelijklopend is met de Sellaklim. Na de splitsing passeer je tussen de dennebomen, ter hoogte van het eenzaam prachtig gelegen Sporthotel Bellavista, het kabelbaanstation van Pecol.
Heel de klim heeft prima asfalt en is gelijklopend bergop zonder extremen met naar het einde toe 8 kort op elkaar volgende haarspeldbochten die je boven de boomgrens brengen met panoramische uitzichten op het Sella- en Marmoladamassief.
Top is erg toeristisch en bonte verzameling van cafés, hotels, parkings, souvenirshops, en groot kabelbaanstation.
De bronzen gedenkplaat voor Fausto Coppi en het koersfietsmonument voor Gilberto Simoni benadrukken het belang van deze klim in de Giro d'Italia.
Zomers kan er erg druk verkeer zijn met vooral hinderlijke autocars zowel bergop als af. Sella ronde is ook een excursie topper per bus. Vroeg starten is de boodschap!
Bij een ander startplaats van de Sella Ronda kom je dalend van de Passo Sella om links de laatste 7 km van de klim mee te pikken.

Mooie "gemakkelijke" klimzijde naar de top die meermaals het dak (Cima Coppi) van de Ronde van Italië was!
