Do you consider yourself a good rider ?
Do you consider yourself a good rider ? This is a good way to prove it: the best of the Alps in 8 days and over 20 passes. Go from Italy to France into Switzerland back to Italy then to Austria, enjoying the good cuisine, nice hotels and great landscapes: this could be the “perfect motorcycle holiday”!
Starting from Milan we will ride through Piemonte to the French Alps to climb the Lombarda Pass (2350 mtrs), crossing into France then the Col de la Bonnette (2715 mtrs), wild and dry, then the Monginevro Pass and the Iseran in one breath, then the highest tarred pass in Europe, The Iseran, 2770 mtrs, proceeding east we will get to italy again with the Gran San Bernardo and the Piccolo San Bernardo, then into Switzerland and the Novena Pass (2478 mtrs), then to the fantastic loop of the Furkapass (2431 mtrs), the Grimsel (2165 mtrs) and Susten (2274 mtrs) all in one breath.
Then an overnight on the Stelvio Pass at 2758 with 48 hairpins, the Gavia pass, very little known but tight and beautiful, Rombo pass (2491 mtrs), Giovio (2094 mtrs) entering the Dolomites area, part of the Alps, called this way for the typical rocks forming these wonderful pink mountains. The Pordoi (2239 mtrs), Campolongo, the Sella (2240 mtrs) are the passes we will be looking for before riding back to Milan to drop off the motorcycles at the end of an incredible week over the Alps.
Do you consider yourself a good rider ? You do not need to be particularly fit as long as you have some experience on twisty roads, our tour leader will give you some suggestions on how to ride on harpins, swipers, tight curves, you will get back to your country with more experience and permanent memories in your mind!!
And… may be some extra weight for the good food and wine !!!
