Start:  Arsie, Veneto, Italy

This ride begins from Arsie and takes the north ascent of Monte Grappa. From Arsi there is approximately 10 kilometres of flat riding to get you to the start of the climb at Caupo. The initial section traverses through a few villages and farmland. At Caupo the ascent starts quite abruptly with 9% gradient. After the first couple of kilometres you are in a more forested area which gives you respite from the sun. Unlike the ascent from the South side of Monte Grappa there are no real tornantes and apart from the first few kilometres, the gradient is manageable, though, the ride does tend to undulate. There are a few steep sections (one section has a sign stating 16%) and a few downhill sections (which are quite nice respite for your legs). With about 8 kilometres to go, the summit can be seen in front of you. With just over 2 kilometres you reach an intersection and the summit is towards the left. This section is quite tough after the long climb already. At the summit there is an opportunity to take food or drink if you wish. The descent is the same way as the ascent. Although the road appeared quite rough on the ride up, it does not cause too much problems on the descent. The S bends provide plenty of opportunity to see through the corners and can be taken quite quickly. The final 10 kilometres are a little bit of a trudge back, particularly if it is a sweltering day. The lake ‘Lago di Corlo’ is very close and a great stop for a swim.
