Deux Mille Cycling Community is for epic people doing epic things. Everyone can do a col – and they should. It will take a bit of grinding, but the feeling overcoming the challenge is second to none. There is something about the scenery in the mountains. They have an absorbing effect of greatness. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes peaceful, sometimes hostile and sometimes grim, but always alluring. It is tough each time, but the pride of conquering a new Deux Mille col and the borderless comradeship it brings along is always worth it.


Passo Sella is one of the most famous passes in the Italian Dolomites and is is overlooked by Torri del Sella and by the Mesules barrier of the Sella Mountain Group.

In 1872 the mountain pass road was built, three mountain huts followed which are still opened: at the top of the pass the Passo Sella Mountain Hut is located, which dates back to 1903, the Carlo Valentini Mountain hut, the oldest hut of the area (1884) and the Maria Flora Tavern (1934).
