Bormio's a grand wee town, quiet in the summer, mental in the winter, still, there were a few mars open, and some decent food to be had. Karaoke in the Clem bar, and Guinness. Just what you need the morning before tackling the Stelvio Pass.....More

Where do you start? The pass is long, the views are amazing, the road is challenging and the coffee at the top was excellent! I have always wanted to do this pass and I enjoyed the whole experience.

This is a challenging but do able climb which has much to offer. There are tunnels, views, hairpin sections, long straights, glaciers, the odd old building etc. Very enjoyable.

One of the passes which is a must do on a motorcycle. Lots of hairpin bends, stunning views and a great ride. The only negative was the cycle race which made it extremely busy.
