More About the Event

Running from Wednesday to Sunday, our weekenders are time-efficient cycling breaks, perfect for exploring some of the best cycling destinations. We stay in the same hotel for 4 nights and you will be riding for 4 days. The aim is to ride the best routes and to have a great time along the way with a friendly group. Our weekenders are fully supported with bike hotel, airport transfers, daily guided rides for different ride levels, mechanical support and feed stops. We also offer bike rental at a supplement.

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 in 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!
