Trip Information

Adapted for 2020 we are bringing you our amazing road cycling holiday in the Italian Alps with more manageable but equally satisfying days in the saddle and more time to explore and enjoy the stunning mountain scenery. The roads which wind their way through these beautiful mountains have been enticing road cyclists for generations. The innumerable challenging climbs and mind-blowing descents are a perfect arena for a week of riding and with this revised itinerary we showcase the best of the best. 
 
Combining the classic trilogy of Passo dello Stelvio, Passo Gavia and Passo Mortirolo with some lesser-known, but no less beautiful climbs in the prialpi (foothills), overlooking the cities of Bergamo and Brescia this new tour, with its slightly shorter days and more relaxed programme, is a perfect introduction to the joys of Italian alpine riding. 
 
Our journey begins in the lakeside town of Iseo from where, over the course of two days, we wind our way north through the prialpi to the town of Edolo. On the way we have the opportunity to test our legs on some of the region's lesser-known and least-visited passes such as the spectaculary beautiful Passo di Crocedomini (1,892m).
 
From Edolo we move deeper into the Alps as we head towards Bormio, taking on the infamous Mortirolo (1,852m) in the process.
 
We will stay the next two evenings in Bormio, which, with its laid-back Italian atmosphere, numerous cafes and bars and world-famous thermal waters, presents a perfect opportunity for a little rest and relaxation before we embark on the second half of our tour during which we conquer the legendary Giro d'Italia classics Passo dello Stelvio and Passo Gavia before heading back to Edolo where we will spend out final evening.
