Today´s 76 mile power tour leads us to Lombardy or rather to the Bergamask Alps.
We begin our 3 passes tour in Plano and ride through the villages Esine and Bienno. From now on, the climb to the Passo di Croce Domini (6200 ft) begins. Inclines with gradients of about 10 % alternate with slight gradients. Having arrived at the pass the road goes downhill in the direction of Bagolino. Just before the village we turn right to our next challenge, the Passo del Maniva (5446 ft), which connects the Valle di Cáffaro with the Val Trómpia.
Our tour continues through the villages of Collio and Bovegno to Lavone where the last challenge already awaits us, the Colle San Zeno (4705 ft). Firstly, the small road with small gradients leads to the valley as far as Pezzaze. From here on it goes uphill in moderate climbs and gradients of more than 10% await us time and again until we reach the pass summit.
Now our descent to Fraine and Pisogne is about to begin.
On an even road we head back via Gratacasole and Darfo to our starting point Plemo.
Anyone who was delighted by the views of this beautiful mountain world and still has the strength in their legs after 12139ft in altitude is welcome to start this tour again.
