Tips

  • Martin Donat

    Among racing cyclists, the Gavia Pass is an institution - of course, the driveway is the challenge. Boosting over countless asphalt turns at 2,612 meters is probably not high on your mountain bike wish list. Nevertheless, start up here a lot of great trails. The solution: a shuttle service. There is a rich offer in Bormio, you can find information on this for example here: bormiobike.it/en-shuttle.aspx

    At the top of the pass you can at least enjoy an impressive view. And strengthen yourself in the hut before you start.

    2618 meters high - and regularly the highlight of the Giro d'Italia. The south ramp has only been paved since the 1990s, and the roadway is very narrow.

    Very popular road pass for racing cyclists. This is not only because of the impressive road and the magnificent mountain scenery, but also because it is often part of the Giro d`Italia. So you will find in the Rifugio on the 2618 meter high pass many memorabilia of past tours such as the famous "Maglia rosa". For mountain bikers, the pass is also known and loved. If you are on an alpine cross on the Albrecht route, you will come to the stage town of Pezzo via this pass.

    Highlight. Be sure to stop at the small lake and take a picture.
    Enjoy the view and enjoy the accomplished ascent.

    Whether with the road bike or with the mountain bike. It really is worthwhile pedaling up there once. It makes you really proud once you have reached the top.

    Scenic mountain pass at 2612 meters. Involved occasionally in demanding mountain stages of the Giro d'Italia.

    Great landscape. And one has to take a picture in front of the sign.

    Climb the famous Gavia Pass. A thing that should be on every cyclist's bucket list. Once at the top, the spritzer is well deserved. And the proof photo under the sign.
