Monte Grappa Bike Day
Take on this historic battleground in your personal battle to reach the Cima Grappa.
Topped with its giant memorial to those who died in the Great War, the Monte Grappa is packed with history and with 10 ridable routes to the summit is now a Mecca for cyclists. The Monte Grappa Bike Day allows you to tackle one of these famous climbs to the top of this amazing mountain all on car-free roads. The non-competitive, free-to-enter event gives you the opportunity to cover 85 kilometres of challenging terrain in an environment dedicated to cyclists.
With 28 hairpins and some of the most spectacular views in all of Italy available from the higher slopes, this mountain really is a special place to ride. No registration is needed all you need to do is make your way to Bassano del Grappa after 8 am on the morning of the event and enjoy a day without stress in beautiful surroundings.
A new route has been conceived for the Monte Grappa Bike Day 2023, taking a clockwise direction from Bassano and heading first up the mostly flat Valsugana valley until the town of Cismon del Grappa.
From here things go skyward via a narrow paved road with sections over 20%. Things level off before the route joins the larger road coming from Seren del Grappa and continues the steady uphill all the way to the Cima Grappa. A rewarding descent back down to Romano d'Ezzelino is followed by a replenishing pasta party, and a slow roll back to the start in Bassano.
