Cycling Passo Mortirolo from Edolo
Ride 16.8 kilometers gaining 1126 meters at 6.7% average grade.
Of the 4 routes to the top of Mortirolo, we feel this is the most scenic. Cycling to Passo Mortirolo from Grosio is a really fun climb and, after the traditional route from Mazzo di Valtellina, our favorite route to the top. This route begins at the northeastern edge of Grosio and runs along a typically narrow route to Passo Mortirolo. The views along this climb are the best of the 4 routes to the top. The roadway is in excellent condition and there is next to no traffic on this road.
