CyclingUP in the Italian Alps







You are visitor nr.

The section Italian Alps of this website includes three giants (Stelvio-east, Mortirolo-west and Passo dello Spluga-south), which currently (2016) are the hardest of this web site after the Ă–tztaler Gletscherstrasse. The site also presents information abouth the Gavia, a number of ascents starting from the Vinschgau (Val Venosta in Italian) and eleven climbs in the Dolomites, among which those of the Sella tour. Both the Dolomites and the landscape of the Stelvio-east are superbly beautiful but unfortunately this is known among too many car and motor drivers. Somewhat less beautiful but pleasant en quiet are the Matschertal and the two ascents to the Mortirolo.
