You can't drive faster than 5 mph as there are cyclists and motorbikes in large groups. Traffic jams too. Best to try other roads.

Unique. Show a photo of the road from above to someone and they will tell you "Stelvio Pass". Fun by car, fun by bike and with lovely fresh air and food. It just makes you feel on holiday.

Get there early, lots of traffic. Check dates it's closed for cyclists before you set your heart on driving it. The 75 bends says it all.

We were in Bormio in june 2017, and my friends started in Granfondo. This race is a big adventure and sporty physicall effort. But when you come on 2750 m high, you have total satisfaction. On the top, you can meet alpin skiers.
