You can cycle in total tranquillity on this enchanting itinerary through an elegant valley where you can admire the centuries-old mountain huts named "Tee", combed meadows and the little church with its typical bulb-shaped bell tower. The route runs deep into the valley among the green pastures and climbs up to the mountain accompanied by the typical wooden huts.read more
At the top of the valley you get to the Cheseira da Fedaria: a destination for many hikers too, requiring for this reason the greatest attention during the descent as well as the reduction of your speed if necessary.From the car park in Ponte della Calcheira (1846 m) you take the Route n. 167 on the orographic right and climb through the valley without crossing the bridge. Part of the trail runs alongside of the brook, then it crosses it, and finally joins together with the main dirt road again. You get to the junction in Plan da L'Isoleta (2060 m): rightwards (sign Way n. 172) the dirt 3 km uphill to the Rifugio Cassana (2700 m) makes the ride tougher and tougher because of the steep and bumpy ground while the main road steadily proceeds to its destination at the Cheseira da Fedaria o di Mortarecc (2210 m). From here you can head for the valley bottom and climb on the steep dirt road leading to the finish line of Carosello 3000 ski runs (sign Way n. 162), and then return to the creamery along a beautiful single trail crossing the slope on the orographic right. During the downhill route, and once returned to the junction in Plan da L'Isoleta, you have to turn left for some meters in order to take the trail n. 173 continuing rightwards and leading you to Pont de la Calcheira again. This last stretch is still more pleasant as it winds among the many and typical Tee it meets on its route.
