This was a fantastic challenge - to cycle up and down the Stelvio Pass. The trip was organised by Rapha Travel and was an amazing experience.
It was a thrill be complete the climb which has 48 hairpins towards the top of the mountain with inclines varying from 9% - 14% with 2,750 feet climb from base camp. Here are some photos of the day....absolutely fabulous scenery along the way.
The following day we cycled from Merano to the lake at the top Martello - another 10 hairpins with 14% inclines. A fabulous route and 2,000 feet climb. Just no stopping us!
