This year’s trip sees us based in Bormio, Italy to tackle some of the climbs made famous by the Giro d’Italia.
We’re based at Cima Piazzi camp site in log cabins and ideally placed for many of the high Alpine passes in the area.
It’s a great spot but we soon find the passes in the Italian Alps are more brutal than those in the French Alps. Longer, steeper and with more switchbacks, the punishment is extreme!
To find out how we got on check out the following blog posts:-
- Mortirilo and the Passo di Gavia
- Bormio 2000
- Passo dello Stelvio
- Passo Del Bernina Circular
- Muro di Sormano and Lake Como
