“Cycling the Passo de Stelvio”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

We climbed the PDS on a clear and warm, sunny day. On the entire ride we met terrific people who were happy and positive about the experience. The scenery was fantastic and th climb is attainable by any trained cyclist.

“One great scenery”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Although it was raining the Stelvio is quite impressive with its 48 curves. Don't expect too much of the pass height itself, it totally focusses on cheap bus tourism and is not nice at all.

“Stelvio; A must for cyclists.”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

If you're an avid cyclist and have been training don't miss the Stelvio. It's a challenging climb with fantastic rewards; great scenery and bragging rights of completing a classic climb. If you're from the states you'll appreciate the courtesy of European drivers who respect cyclists. And if you're as lucky as we were to be there the one day of the year both sides of the Stelvio are closed to motorized vehicles it will be an extra special experience.

“One of the best drives”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

I climbed the 48 hairpins up to the Stelvio Pass at 2758m. It was a great drive and a great road surrounded by beautiful high mountains scenery. A must do !!
