Passo Stelvio

One of the greatest mountain passes in the world. The Stelvio is like no other. Read all the technical statistics about the Stelvio you want, but nothing prepares you for the emotional reality of the place. The entire pass is surreal, a Holywood film set of an imagined mountain pass, but for real. The closer to the top, the more surreal it becomes.

The Passo Stelvio is a unique gift for cyclists. Forty-eight bends, all different, not one the same. Steep cambers between hard stone and rigid battlement walls. Overweight motorcyclists on Harley Davidsons struggle to manoeuvre 360-degree bends and stay upright - but fail. Meanwhile, old hipsters freeze to death in open-top Porsches trying to look cool.

Real men and women ride bicycles.
