Stories, information and comments from Enego climbers

I have climbed to Enego over ten times as it''s always my first climb on my first day of my annual cycling vacation in these parts of Italy, an hour north of Venice, near the Dolomites -- which can be seen as you make this climb.
Enego is an easy 90 minute climb up to a very nice hill top town where there is a wonderful caffe to pause -- as all Italian cyclists do -- for a cappuccino to celebrate the climb.
There are approximately 17 switchbacks -- Tornante -- to get to Enego and none will tax you. The architecture in this part of Italy is very Swiss/Austrian chalet, and quite quaint. The route down is the same as up unless you choose to go on to Foza, Gallio or Asiago. I almost always go down as this decent is much better than the decent at Foza.
The climb starts at the end of the local road north that follows the Brenta River from Bassano.
