About the mountains

These legendary climbs are on every cyclist’s bucket list. From Pantani to Wiggins to Froome, all of the great champions have conquered these three great monuments of European cycling.

Each mountain has its own characteristics:

  • Passo Stelvio, with its 36 switchbacks, is the highest paved road in Europe and frequently appears in the top five climbs in world cycling
  • Passo Gavia, one of the most famous climbs in Europe, is mythical and romantic in equal measure.
  • Passo Mortirolo, your final challenge, although a relatively short climb, its steep gradients have given it a fearsome reputation!

We're here to support you

We'll be with you every step of the way to offer fundraising advice including Parkinson's specific fundraising materials. You'll also receive an exclusive cycling specific training plan written by cycling coach Ian Jenner.
