Climbed this puppy post Mortirolo. Very tough day in the saddle but loved the coffee, cake and coke at the top. Stunning views. You know you want to...

Stelvio vs. Gavia - two mountains with very different personalities. The Gavia is really in three parts - the climb to Santa Catarina, the climb through the forest, then the last part trough the Gavia's moon-scaped summit. I found the Gavia to be far less forgiving as there are only a few switchbacks to recover on. It's also very exposed and, despite riding in June, we still found ourselves riding through a tunnel of snow 3m high on either side of the road...a surreal experience. The descent is a blast - the lack of switchbacks means you'll hit 80-90km/h, just watch out for motorbikes crossing the road centreline!!

From Bormio it can be a little crowded, but from Santa Caterina Valfurva, it is a fantastic ride! Get to the top and have a Homemade cake/Cafe. Great ride!
