Bike season

April - October

With over 300 days of sunshine a year, this northernmost region of Italy is one of the sunniest in the Alps.

The Vinschgau District is located in the west of South Tyrol and stretches from the head of the Adige river at the Reschen Pass to Merano. The cultural landscape of the Vinschgau District offers a diverse programme of racing cycle tours from the plateaus around the Reschen Pass across South Tyrol's highest mountain, the Ortler (3.905m), to the apple orchards in the sunny low-lying areas. This diversity makes the Vinschgau District a popular destination for racing cyclists. Wonderful leisure tours can be experienced in the valley and the higher-situated tours are also very popular. 

The highlight for every passionate racing cyclist is the Stelvio Pass. A total of 48 bends must be taken before arriving at the pass in the tri-border region where the beautiful panoramic view to the glacier world of the Ortler Mountains can be enjoyed. More than 12.700 timings have already been recorded on the famous Strava measuring section. The best time has been registered at 1 hour and 21 minutes.

Stelvio Bike Day

2017-09-02 - 2017-09-02

This all happens on 2. September 2017, when the legendary mountain pass road to the Stilfser Joch is blocked for normal traffic.  

On that day, the road belongs only to cyclists!  It’s not a race, but being there is everything! The final destination of this cycle tour is the Stilfser Joch at an altitude of 2,760 metres above sea level, one of the highest Alpine passes open to traffic. With the descent via the Umbrail Pass (2,503 metres), also free of traffic, you will come to Santa Maria in the Munster Valley (Switzerland) and from there to Glurns. This makes it a truly beautiful circular tour.

This region with its beautiful panorama offers plenty of cycling tours. You won’t be able to manage them during just one holiday.

For a perfect day by racing cycle, I recommend the tour via Brixen to the Würz Pass. Starting in St. Vigil via the Pustertal Valley Cycling Track, you will reach Schabs. From there you continue to Brixen and then uphill to St. Andrä which is the perfect place for a break with a picturesque view to the Villnösser Geisler. A quick steady ascent takes you through dense coniferous forests and past colourful alpine meadows to the Würz Pass. A challenging tour for anyone who is not deterred by 100 km and more than 2.100 metres in altitude.
