    "The Queen of the Pass Roads" and "Europe's Highest Fairground" are just two nicknames that carry the Passo dello Stelvio. The 48-turn driveway has it in itself, since it ends only at an altitude of 2,757 m. Once at the top, the view of the two 3,000, Ortler and Monte Scorluzzo, lets forget all the pain.

    .. we started with the MTBikes from Laatsch on the Stilfser Joch and on the UmbrailPass back - that were 35 kilometers and 1850 meters up (the pure pass route is with 29 km, 48 bends and 1,800 vertical meters specified) with moderate slope 🙂
    The UmbrailPass down was pleasant, as there was very little traffic 🏍🚗
    We were up for three and a half hours - a total of 64 kilometers and 4 3/4 hours of pure driving time.

    Stelvio, Grossglockner and Col Agnel were the three toughest climbs of my cycling life; they made me lose three years of life, but it was worth it!

    One of the best climbs I had a pleasure to ride. I suggest starting it early to avoid high traffic. And have in mind that when its raining at the bottom, than its usually snowing at the pass. If you want to go back to Prato than itd perfect to take the road through Switzerland.

    The Stelvio Pass (also Stelvio Pass, Italian Passo dello Stelvio) is at 2757 m s.l.m. the highest mountain pass in Italy and, after the Col de l'Iseran, the second highest paved mountain pass in the Alps. The Stelvio Pass connects Bormio in Valtellina (Lombardy) with Prad in Vinschgau (South Tyrol).

    A must for every cyclist
    The last Saturday in August or the first Saturday in September is the Stelvio for motorized vehicles locked only for cyclists released from Gomagoi
