PASSO CEREDA | DOLOMITES
Passo Cereda sits at 1369 meters a.s.l. and forms the boundary between the Trento Province, of the Trentino Alto Adige and Belluno Province, of the Veneto Region. Located in the southern slopes of the Pale di San Martino Mountian Group, Passo Cereda is one of the lesser known climbs of the Dolomites, but an excellent route to link several valleys and passes of the Italian Dolomites.
Passo Cereda links Fiera di Primiero with the Agordo valley, and town of Agordo, for a cyclist this is a classic linkup to reach Passo Duran, Passo Rolle, Passo S. Pelligrino, Passo Brocon and others. There are three routes up to Passo Cereda. For me the best ride is from Fiera di Primiero, an 8.4 km climb with an average grade of 9%. The ride over the pass from Agordo is 3 times as long but an easy ride that makes a loop route over Passo Rolle and Passo Valles back to Agordo an excellent day.
HOW TO GET TO PASSO CEREDA IN THE ITALIAN DOLOMITES
The closest train station to Passo Cereda is in the towns of Feltre or Belluno. The Dolomite Bus systems pass through the pass, you can get either to Agordo with a regional bus from Belluno, or you can reach Fiera di Primiero from Feltre.
If you are cycling I do not recommend riding up the valley from Feltre to Fiera di Primier there are several tunnels. You should ride over Passo Croce d'Aune the Passo Brocon, or ride from the north from the Fassa Valley and Passo S. Pelligrino, Passo Valles, and Passo Rolle.
