Highlight – Ciclismo su strada
She is also known as the "Queen of the Pass roads". Truly bold is the road leading up to 2757m, to one of the highest alpine passes. The 48-sweeping driveway of Prad is a true classic, but therefore often crowded. If you want to fight the 1800m high to the Stilfser Joch alone, this is best done in the low-traffic hours in the morning at 7 o'clock in the morning or at 8 o'clock in the evening. Quieter driveways are possible from Santa Maria or Bormio.

If you venture from Prad up the good 25 km mountain at a stretch, should divide his forces well. The first ten kilometers to Trafoi are still rather "easy", on average 6% against the subsequent 15 kilometers but rather flat. Anyone who approaches Trafoi too fast will pay tribute afterwards. Then it goes partly ramps between 10-13% high, especially shortly before the summit gives you the last rest. Depending on the training level you should plan a good three hours for about 25 km. The traffic is not really helpful in the summer against the mountain and itself. A mountain suitable translation (11-34) is extremely helpful and one should not be too bad, these in the preparation for the Stelvio into consideration to draw. Anyone who has made it to the top, can really appreciate and proud you get a terrific view and has earned the photo honestly!

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Stelvio as quickly as possible, then down to Bormio and on to Grosio. From there the Passo della Foppa leads over the Mortirolo to Monno. The Mortirolo is up to the Panorma the Stelvio in no way, is much lonelier and has little traffic.

The 48 hairpin bends turn from Prad via Gomagoi, Trafoi and Franzenshöhe to the second highest paved mountain pass in Europe. Close to Trafoi the cyclist gets unrestricted views of the glacier and mountain
Rock formations of the Ortler group that will not let them go up to the top of the pass.

Passo dello Stelvio is the mountain of the mountains in Italy. A mythical col, known for the Giro d'Italia and the many hairpin bends. You climb over 21 kilometers to the top and then descend again to Bormio. Now set your goal and mark the Stelvio off your bucket list. The perfect challenge for less experienced cyclists!

The 48 bends of the Stelvio Pass are a must for anyone who likes racing bicycles in the Alps. Dodge the traffic by driving at dawn - who starts at sunrise in the summer, can look forward to a great experience that he has to share at most with a handful of like-minded early bird.

Drive up these switchbacks for the first time, of course. As an unconditional recommendation, I can also give the tip to roll down ... You can enjoy this pass without agony and soak up every serpentine and can also easily collect photos for the memory

I think the Stelvio is overrated, it is breathtakingly beautiful but the traffic is extremely annoying (especially motorcycles and sports cars) and it is not particularly difficult to drive.
1. On BikeDay at the end of August, the Stelvio will be closed to motorized traffic
2. Mountain roads with tolls such as the Kaunertaler Gletscherstraße are significantly less traffic-intensive. The Kaunertaler is also incredibly beautiful and imposing and even a lot more difficult to drive (from the reservoir).
3. Take a look at the Dreiländergiro, which is a round trip over the Stelvio, Umbrailpass, Ofenpass, and Norberthöhe near Nauders. A total of 3,300 meters and 160 km.

Ask any cyclist, professional or amateur, and they may well tell you the same thing. It is an ugly climb. At least in the sense of the effort required. Being Europe’s third highest col, measuring 22kms in length and averaging 7.1% in gradient, that really comes as no surprise.
Passo dello Stelvio is part of our Montagnes du Monde series, head over to bit.ly/3eyDN9m and claim your badge if you rode this classic.
