Breakfast, Farewell Dinner (incl. wine)
We set off from Bormio today and head down the valley. Enjoy the downhill, it may be the fastest 40km you’ll ever do, you’ll feel great. We arrive at Mazzo di Valtellina where the 2nd toughest cycling climb in Italy begins, the Mighty Mortirolo. Gradients between 15% and 20% are not unusual, especially on the earlier segments. Keep your resolve, and you’ll make it, some may even have to push and some may even just turn around with their weary legs catching up with them. The reward is worth it, reaching the Mortirolo monument. Imagine racing this climb, at the end of a long Giro d’Italia stage! After reaching the summit, we descend back to the base where our transport will meet us and take us to Lake Como this afternoon. This evening we’ll have our farewell dinner, leaving tomorrow evening free for you to explore Milan after the Giro d’Italia finish.
