- “Sellaronda Bike Day”
The Sellaronda Bike Day is a non competitive cycling event open to all and the Highway code must be respected.
- The Highway Code
The Highway code must be obeyed at all times in order to ensure the safety of all participants. The participants should save the environment.
- Advised direction and appropriate velocity
Bearing in mind the roads and the potential for speed, the organising committee, recommend cyclists to go in the anticlockwise direction. Keep to the right and only use the right hand lane. Considering there are families with children on the route as well, cyclists should maintain a moderate speed during descent.
- Use of helmet
For safety reasons, helmets are obligatory.
- Closure of roads
The roads will be closed to traffic from 8.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. The closure is planned for half an hour before the opening to cyclists, allowing any traffic on the passes to reach its destination. The organising committee, does not guarantee absolute absence of traffic on the route.
- Authorized Traffic
The only vehicles authorized to use the passes during the period of closure are exclusively the public services (Police, Carabinieri, ambulances, fire brigade etc.) which will have sirens and warning lights. The vehicles of the organising committee are also permitted, they will have a flashing yellow light.
- Public busses to the passes
On 10.06.2023 and 16.09.2023 the public bus service around the Sella Group will be suspended.
- Times for the event
Considering that this is not a race there is not a precise start time. It is important to note that the roads are officially closed to traffic from 8.30 a.m., before this time there may still be traffic on the passes; the passes will be open to traffic again at 4.00 p.m.
