Passo delle Stelvio (Stilfser Joch in German) is one of the most famous, beautiful, high, and fun cycling rides anywhere.
We’re in the beautiful Dolomites and the weather forecast is awful – what to do?
Sunday, Martin and I successfully completed the Maratona dles Dolomites.
This cyclosportive has become one of the most famous events on the European amateur cycling calendar. In part due to the beautiful surroundings, and in part due to the challenging course – including 5 passes above 2,000 metres.
This pass has been used for almost 3,000 years to cross the Alps. Julius Caesar crossed with an army in 57 BC. Today, along the route are signs with drawings commemorating Napolean’s crossing with 46,000 soldiers in 1800.
