The region around Bormio, where we will be staying, is home to three cycling passes: the Mortirolo, the Gavia and the Stelvio - the largest of all three.
With the choice of tackling one or two of these passes, completion of either will allow bragging-rights for years to come. We offer a variety of routes, including warm-up rides, to prepare you for an unforgettable experience.
The Gran Fondo Stelvio offers the chance to climb two out of three Italian Alps cycle passes, across three different routes. All three routes conclude with a climb of the Stelvio.
2020 will be the sixth Gran Fondo Stelvio event, allowing individuals to follow in the footsteps of some of the greatest cycling heroes.
Conquering the Stelvio itself is an impressive feat. To do so after defeating the Mortirolo is downright heroic. With over 30 exhilarating hairpins, seven tunnels and a monument of world war one, the rewards you will reap from the cycle are numerous.
Bormio is home to some pretty spectacular cycle routes. The Gavia, for example, is 25km and reaches 2,500m high. Other cycle routes include Bormio 2000 and Lago Di Cancano. Our travel packages include warm-up rides to different locations, allowing you to get as much out of your trip as possible.
Where could be better to recover from your adventures than exploring the riches that Bormio has to offer? Why not soak sore muscles in the local hot springs? Or explore the local museums and immerse yourself in Italian history before enjoying a latte at a local cafe?

We can guarantee your entry to the Gran Fondo as well as provide a variety of warm-up rides led by local trail experts.
