Stelvio Weekender Cycling Holiday

This is one of the great cycling weekends for climbers. Over 5 days you climb the Stelvio (from both sides), the Gavia & Mortirolo as well as some great local routes that many people find to be their best climb of the trip. Each of the three main riding days are tough with two or three climbs per day and over 3,000m of elevation, but the payoff is riding in a varied and stunning part of the world and ticking off some proper bucket list climbs. Bormio is the perfect town to relax after a ride with some nice ice cream shops, markets and hot springs. Bring strong legs and a big rear cassette for the ultimate Stelvio cycling holiday!

FAQs

Stelvio Weekender

We have two ride options each day. The long routes each day are tough with two big climbs each day, suitable for good club riders. The second group go at a more relaxed pace, the climbs are tough but manageable and we regroup for coffee at the tops before descending and riding the flat sections together.
We will send a full packing list before you leave. There is a free overnight laundry service so you don't need to bring kit for each day but you will need warm & cold weather gear. We give you a day bag for the van so you can pack jackets etc to pick up at the summits.
Contact our team via the live chat below or [email protected] and we can suggest alternatives including private transfers.
