Day by day:

Day 0: your countdown to the tour is over. It's Saturday and you need to be in Milan by 4pm. We shall finalise the paperwork and pick up the bikes from our depot. The welcome dinner starts at 8pm. Let the fun begin!! 

Day 1: Our ride takes us quickly to Lecco and then Mandello del Lario, the hometown of Moto Guzzi bikes. All Guzzi are built here since 1921 and nowhere else. Unfortunately it is Sunday and their museum is closed, so we'll have to settle for a cappuccino in the local cafee. From Mandello we follow the shores of Lake Como to Chiavenna and then tackle the first Alpine pass, the Splugenpass (Passo Spluga) which will take us into Switzerland. We then take the fast Julierpass to St Moritz and the Berninapass into Livigno for our first double night stop over. 

Day 2: The loop ride out of Livigno sees us ride back in Switzerland on the Albulapass the long valley of the Landwasser river to Davos and then over the Fluelapass back ino Engadine. The Ofenpass will take us back to Livigno through a tunnel, or for the more mile munching of you to the Santa Maria pass, to Stelvio, and then back to Livigno over the Foscagno pass

Day 3: we leave Livigno over the Passo del Foscagno and attack the Stelvio pass from the Bormio side. Once we have taken in the altitude and the sites of this magnificent pass, eaten the compulsory bratwurst at the kiosk with Richard, we take the staircase (48 switchbacks) down to Prato allo Stelvio, head for Merano and then on to Vipiteno over the Jaufenpass. A short easy run down the Brennerpass and Val Pusteria to reach Val Badia, will take us to the heart of the Dolomites and to our next double night stopover in the small village of Colfosco at the foothill of the Passo Gardena.

Day 4: Our loop ride takes us around the most significant a beautiful passes in the dolomites. We ride the Gardena pass, the Sella pass, Pordoi pass, the magnificent Passo di Giau into Cortina. After a short visit to this exclusive resort,  we run a loop ride of the Cristallo group of dolomites and back to Colfosco over the Falzarego pass and Valparola. Here we can stop at the fascinating WW1 museum based in a fort at the top of the Valparola pass. 

Day 5: Our time in the Dolomites is over and we must make our way back to Milan. We ride the Alpe di Siusi to Bolzano. From here the Passo Mendola and Passo Tonale to Lake Iseo and Bergamo where we join the A4 autostrada for the last stretch getting back into Milan.
