Safety guidelines

ITRS - International Trail Rating System

The ITRS is an objective way to assess trails and routes from a biker’s perspective, evaluating four aspects:

  • Technical Difficulty: riding skill level needed
  • Endurance: combined effect of length, uphill and downhill
  • Wilderness: amount of planning required based on mobile phone reception, rescue options, water supply and wildlife
  • Exposure: consequences of a fall

Tremalzo
Directions

The route is a variant of the 779. Tremalzo Big Tour that allows you to shorten the tour considerably. 

Along the Tremalzo provincial road, near the Garibaldi refuge, we take the Caset forest road. When we reach the beginning of the road, we come to a fork and take the forest road on the right, which descends to the Malga Giù basin.

At the last hairpin bend with the malga in view, instead of continuing along the road, we take the path on the left that proceeds with a slight up and downhill stretch towards the Bochet de la Spinera. Just before reaching this point, where several paths cross, we follow the signs pointing to the right and begin our descent towards Pubregn on a stretch of path that is the most technical part of the route, with an uneven surface and continuous changes of direction.

After about 1 km, the path meets the forest road of Pubregn, which is rather wide and easy, on which we continue our descent. Having passed the barrier, we join the tarmac road at Doss de Pur and continue our descent, ignoring the small roads that give access to private properties. Having reached Via Europa, we turn left and continue downhill, joining the lakeside path near the Pieve sailing club.
