Ross Cycles in conjunction with     European Cycle Events are off to Italy .

Ross Cycles (RC) and European Cycle Events (ECE) have joined forces to  offer Customers of RC a long weekend to Italy to conquer the famous mountain passes used in the Giro d'Italia in Italy. This weekend is dedicated to the customers of RC to come together with Ross (the owner) to have a weekend never to be forgotten and spoken about for many years. 

We will be based in Bormio a town in Northern Italy which is tucked between many fantastic climbs those being , Mortirolo (made famous by Marco Pantani) , Bormio 2000 , Gavia  ,  Focango , Umbrail Pass and the famous STELVIO.  This trip is a climber delight and a place that gives fantastic views when climbed. We will be staying at the Palace Hotel ( which I have used on many occasions and located is 500 meters from the town center and the base of the Stelvio.  It's a 4 start hotel with a purpose built secure bike basement, a wellness centre and a swimming pool so you can relax after a days ride , here are a few picture of what you can look forward.
