To the Stelvio
The second highest pass in the Alps, the famous Stelvio, is about 400 km from my home. Too close and tempting to be overlooked. A week in the Alps in september, good weather and still high temperatures, a 1000 km credit card tour with new light bike, a fine dinner with a glass of wine after a day's ride up and down some Dolomite passes - isn't that a consumation devotely to be wished?
Route planned: Jesenice - Tolmezzo - Cortina d'Ampezzo - Sella Ronda - Boltzano - Stelvio - Bormio - Bolzano - Cortina - Sillian - Kotschach - Arnoldstein - Kranjska Gora - Ljubljana.
