Passo Giau

Regularly featured in the Giro d’Italia, the viciously steep Passo Giau is a demanding ride, but the rewards are both breathtaking and humbling .

Sinuous roads, jagged peaks and steep gradients, leave you breathless for all the right reasons. The Giau may not be the longest climb at 10km, but it should never be taken lightly, with a gradient that rarely drops below double figures all the way up to the summit at 2,236m, it’s a serious test. Take a few moments to watch the video with Mike, mountains, sheep and shepherd, to appreciate the awesome climb, the beauty and the serenity of the Passo Giau, and be inspired.
