Stelvio bike day 2016
by Iris Mueck, tour started August 2014, submitted 31 August 2016
Europe: Italy

We traveled by train and bus to Nauders (Austria), which is located right at the border between Austria and Italy. Nauders is rather high elevated. A lot of people know the passo Rescia. That's the place. We found best weather conditions (Kaiserwetter!) A real warm day - round 35 grad Centergrade. Phuuu...

On the day of the Stelvio ride, my lack of training put me much behind all the others. The good thing: there are so many riders, one can never be the last... Participants from all over the world. We have seen riders from New Zealand, USA, etc. This is what the say on the original Stelvio webpage: 8.415 cyclists went up to the Stelvio Pass from the South-Tyrolian side of Italy and 2.986 went up from the Lombardia last Saturday the 27th August 2016. ALL IN ALL 11.401 CYCLISTS HAVE REACHED THE STELVIO PASS!

see: (copy the link into your browser) 48 breath-taking bends and 1,869 metres of altitude by bike ... 
This all happens on 27. September 2016, when the legendary mountain pass road to the Stilfser Joch is blocked for normal traffic. Lowest point (START): Prad am Stilfserjoch (910 metres) Highest point (FINISH): Stilfser Joch Pass (2,758 metres) Distance Prad Stilfser Joch: 24.96 km Difference in altitude Prad Stilfser Joch: 1,848 metres Maximum ascent: 15% Average ascent: 9 11% On that day, the road belongs only to cyclists! It's not a race, but being there is everything!

Bicycle tour to Switzerland and Italy
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2016, submitted 27 June 2016

Time for a bicycle chillout... We are still riding our bicycles, working on climbs we missed to do before. So, we made the Albula summit at Switherland. With very scenic views to the Rhatische Bahn (railroad). Then the Majoija summit, with a wonderful downhill to the ancient Italian city of Chiavenna. Before Chiavenna, a shady bike trail leaded us right into the city. Extrem friendly people. Mostly speaking German. The call themself "Grenzgänger" - which means they are working in Switzerland...

And then... the Spluga summit. Another bicyclist warned us, saying "this is another liga". He was so right. But views, we never will forget. Enjoy the pictures and the rport. Good luck to our followers.

1st day: day distance round 70 kilometers; accommodation at Valbella starting at the Austrian railroad station Feldkirch. Heading for Switzerland which is just some miles apart. Riding along the Rhine river towards Landquart and Chur. We climbed up the Lenzerheide summit an found accomodation at Valbella

Wonderful and motivating Brenta - Ortles Brevet with Passo dello Stelvio, Gavia ..(363 km + 8088 m)
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started August 2015, submitted 13 December 2015
Europe: Italy

Brevetto Brenta-Ortles is a wonderful challenge in North Italy with beautiful ascents, lakes, landscape and motivating climbs. The route (officially 363 km + 8088 m) starts towards the Lago di Molveno with breathtaking mountains in the background, then through the Val di Non and Merano. The ride’s two most challenging climbs are the legendary passo dello Stelvio (2760 m) and Passo di Gavia (2621 m), but it is followed by Passo del Tonale, Passo Campo Carlo Magn next to the Brenta Dolomites and at last a short, but romantic ascent to Stenico. To cycle this roundtrip the participants has max. 34 hours to be a „finisher” of this challenge. I did this in August and was amazed by the nature, mountains, and otherwise it was adventurous too, becaue few hours before cycling up to Passo dello Stelvio a heavy strom caused landslides on the descent to Bormio and few times I had climb onto and down from the rocks to reach Bormio and then finish the challenge. It was a wonderful, memorable ride and I can suggest to others !

Recorregut de 9 dies per l'Alto Adige i el Trentino.

Descens del Passo Sella
by Michael Simmons, tour started June 2008, submitted 13 December 2013

I always dreamed of bicycling through Europe and climbing as many of the famous climbs of the Tour de France and Giro Italia as possible. My tour ended up being for almost 10 weeks, 3020 miles/4860 kilometers, and I pedaled through 10 countries. I loved the entire tour but 2 aspects stand out: 1)France stands out for my favorite cycling, for the amazing secondary road system and because I got to climb, the Tourmalet, Aubisque, Peyresourde, Aspin, Mont Ventoux, Alpe D'Huez, Lauteret; and 2) I visited the home villages of three of my grandparents in Slovenia and Croatia. Crossing Italy I opted for the Italian Riviera and Tuscany, but later wished I had pedaled across the Lakes Region and the Dolomites. And because of factors out of my control I had to cut my trip short so I skipped my plans of zig zagging across Switzerland. Enjoy my journal and the pictures.

TransAlp Trip:Canadian Style
by Dave Pearce, tour started July 2013, submitted 20 November 2013

This trans alp cycling trip is our 5th in Europe and it is not too much different from the others except being twice as long.We are an older couple who doesn't mind a little bit of hard mountain touring with all of our gear and being sort of self sufficient as this is what we do when on long trips in Canada, canoeing, backpacking, cycle touring, when there are few facilities. All of our stays were in campsites except at the end and 98% of our meals were prepared or cooked. We usually do not rely on buses or trains and except for 150km, we carried all our gear.This was a 3800KM, 36,000m, 60 day trip that was even more spectacular than our other journeys.

The Alps are so grand and the infrastructure so good that cycle touring around and over the mountains is a lot of fun. Hope that readers can get a lot of good information from this trip report as we have received so much advice from the Trento Bike Pages in the past.

Da Londra a Verona III^ parte

Sorvolo Verona ma che bella città! Il castello, l'Arena, la piazza con il mercato. Però non capisco, le strade sono strette, più di quelle delle colline e dei monti, ma circolano tanti SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle). La maggior parte dei guidatori non ha proprio nulla di sportivo, non ha rispetto per ciclisti né per pedoni, pretende sempre di sorpassare, strombazza e s'impazientisce. Ed io ero convinto che a Verona usassero soltanto le Giuliette dell'Alfa Romeo con i cuoricini attaccati al parafango posteriore!

Overflight Verona ... but what a beautiful city! The castle, the Arena, the square with the market. But I do not understand, the roads are narrow, more than those of the hills and mountains, but many circulating SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle).

And I was convinced that they used only in Verona Juliets Alfa Romeo with hearts attached to the rear fender!
