Start:  Bormio, Sondrio, Italy

This ride is a direct ascent/descent ride from Bormio to Passo di Gavia. Although considered the 'less famous' of the two sides that Passo di Gavia can be approached from, it is convenient if you are staying in Bormio. The start has a moderate gradient but there is a little plateau once you reach San Nicolo. From here, the ride is a series of switchbacks which reach a maximum gradient of 12%. Three kilometers from the Passo di Gavia itself, the ride flattens giving you the opportunity to catch your breath! If cycling early in the season, it is most likely that walls of snow will greet you before the summit.
