Stelvio bike day
48 breath-taking bends and 1,869 metres of altitude by bike
When the legendary mountain pass road to the Stilfser Joch is blocked for normal traffic. On that day, the road belongs only to cyclists! It’s not a race, but being there is everything! The final destination of this cycle tour is the Stelvio Pass at an altitude of 2,760 metres above sea level, one of the highest Alpine passes open to traffic. With the descent via the Umbrail Pass (2,503 metres), also free of traffic, you will come to Santa Maria in the Munster Valley (Switzerland) and from there to Glurns. This makes it a truly beautiful circular tour.

After a break of two years, it was great to be on the road again together with many other cycling enthusiasts and without motorised traffic in the middle of the National Park!
