My tip ride once the sun hits the valley climb from Bormio - 8am that way you stay warm
Lovely yet challenging ride from Bormio. Great scenery along the whole route. Plenty of motorcycle traffic to contend with, so caution is required.
Was a wonderfully warm day, however I'm sure it could get a little chilly at the top.
Took me like half hour driving from Bormio to the lake at the top of Passo di Gavia. The landscape views are absolutely fantastic. Also you will see farms and other small towns all around while you drive around

If your doing Stelvio make sure you do this as well it’s a great road for motorcycles the views are incredible and the road keeps you focused as it’s a bit narrow in places .. gets a big thumbs up from me ..
