Details

The Italian Dolomites, where cycling legends are made, hosts the Giro d’Italia each year. The Stelvio, Gavia and the Mortirolo frequently feature in the Giro. Our road cycling holiday in the Italian Dolomites showcases these 5 epic climbs perfectly. We stay in Bormio which is situated at the foot of the Stelvio & Gavia, only 20km from the Mortirolo and you’ll also be able to ride the Umbrial & Bermina Passes in Switzerland, so you can tick off all 5 of these epic climbs off your bucket list in one trip.

They say the toughest climbs are the ones you’ll remember forever, and the Mortirolo is definitely one of them! An absolute beast of a climb but problably the one I want to go back and ride the most!!

In 2019 we are offering 2 accommodation options to suit, we think, all budgets.

Accommodation Option 1.

A 3 Star Hotel in Bormio which has secure bike storage, fitted with alarm and video surveillance system and equipped with bike racks, a bike wash area and a small workshop area for maintaining your bike. The Hotel is a family run business, like the Andalucian Cycling Experience, they offer a unique and personal service. As cyclists we want to start the day fueled up and ready to ride and the breakfast at the hotel is opulent, offering a wide range of energy filled options, a perfect way to start your day. After each ride we can relax and soothe our aching legs in the Hotel’s Wellness Centre which has a Jacuzzi, Steam Room and Sauna.

Accommodation Option 2.

Self Catering Apartments in the centre of Bormio, which has secure bike storage, equipped with bike racks and a small workshop area for maintaining your bike. The apartments are well equiped for a self catering style holiday and also offer washer/dryer facilities. All apartments have a balcomy with mountain views.

The terrain is challenging, the scenery simply breathtaking and the riding is epic! You’ll be riding on legendary roads, on epic climbs that are steep in cycling history, this cycling holiday offers the very best of the dramatic Italian Alps. Combine this with the warm Italian hospitality you’ll have a truly unique cycling experience filled with everlasting memories.

Your Andalucian Cycling Experience guides will be offering 2 guided group rides per day with a midweek rest day to recover, explore Bormio and visit one of the many thermic Spa’s.
