Bormio & The Stelvio
The resort of Bormio in the Italian Alps is the scene of the BoC Stelvio Escape. The perfect base, nestled right at the foot of the legendary Passo dello Stelvio, allows us to ride so many climbs that are infamous with the Giro d'Italia. The Stelvio is the highlight, but Bormio has so much more to offer, including the brutal Passo di Mortirolo, Passo di Gavia, and many of the pro's favourite training climbs around Livigno.
6 Days & 6 Nights
A new, longer format for 2024, the Stelvio Escape is now a 6 day, 6 night event, after the roaring success of our 2023 Stelvio Weekender.
Over 500km & 14,000m
This is a big week, which will see us cross borders, climb all three sides of the Stelvio, and so much more. See all the Bormio has to offer on two wheels.
Stay in the perfect cycling hotel, Hotel Funivia in Bormio. We've partnered with the family run Funivia for over 3 years and it's perfect for the BoC Escape.

Before coming to this Alpine Escape, I expected a high level of support, lodging, meals, rides... I was truly amazed, blown away, how Band of Climbers team exceeded these expectations in every way! Truly memorable experience, best cycling vacation I've enjoyed so far!

This was my first ever Band Of Climbers experience and it certainly did not disappoint... from start to finish, everything you could possibly wish was included, so all you had to do was turn the pedals. This trip turned into an emotional life changing experience and one which I was happy to share with the new friends I have made, as a result.

The best week on a bike I’ve ever had! The rides, scenery, accommodation and support crew were all first class and the friendships made within the group will be long lasting.
