The B500

On our way to Italy from the UK, we drop in on the famous B500 through the German Black Forest.

Timmelsjoch pass

Crossing from Austria into Italy over the imposing Dolomite mountain range we ride the exhilarating Timmelsjoch pass with its endless hairpins and classic motorcycle museum at the summit.

Lake Garda

We stop here for a few nights for a well-deserved break. Relax by the shore with a limoncello, take a boat ride on the lake or use the cable car to visit Monte Baldo.

Secret Biker roads

With help from our local contacts, we’ve planned a selection of ride-outs from Lake Garda including one that retraces the route from not one but two James Bond car chases.

Stelvio Pass

Any trip to northern Italy wouldn’t be complete without the obligatory Stelvio pass ride, the hairpins are infamous for bikers around the world and you’ll soon see why.

Swiss Passes

After the thrills of the Stelvio, the excitement doesn’t end there. How about a day on the way home spent riding the Grimsel, Furka, St Gotthard, Nufenen and Susten passes in Switzerland.

Italy Tour Report

Wow – what a breath-taking trip covering six countries plus some of the most spectacular mountain passes in Austria, Switzerland and Italy. It all started at the meeting point which for a reason unbeknown to me is called STOP24, one motorway junction away from the departure junction for the tunnel. We were all mustered for … Continued

Italy 2 Tour Report

Heatwave? Delays in the tunnel? Long delays in the tunnel??? Surely not, or so we thought when we met at 0700 at STOP24 however, there were already reports of queuing traffic on the motorway so we made some very quick introductions and joined the queue – QUEUE, on a motorcycle! After 2 hours of stop-start … Continued

Italy 1 Tour Report

Day 1 Stop 24 at an ungodly hour on a Saturday morning – most of us had stayed locally however Andy had got up and driven from Lincoln leaving at 2am that morning – and we still had 200 odd miles to cover in France! 19 people (including me – the Magellan guide) and 16 … Continued
