Why is backpack transport so important you may ask?
Summer temperatures in the Alps can vary greatly; having a bag with a change of cold weather kit ready for you at the top of a climb can make the difference between an enjoyable descent and a very cold uncomfortable ride home! Riding up an epic mountain climb is hard enough without having to lug your warm kit on your back…we take care of that for you with our bag transport service to the top of the Stelvio, Gavia available every day. So wherever you choose to ride, you can be ready for anything nature throws at you.
