Mountain Biking Highlight
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.

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.

We used this pass when we crossed the Alps. I have pictures and videos on my website: adventtour.net/post/mountainbike-transalp-pt2-stelvio-umbrai-garvia-val-di-sol-lago-di-garda
