Story by PJTramdack from New Castle PA, United States, submitted on 23/11/2013
My wife and I climbed the Passo in the fall of 1975 on racing bikes modified for touring (we didn''t know better) on a trip from Le Havre to Florence. We were each carrying about 35 pounds of gear. I rode a 42 x 24 gear and my wife 42 x 26. The bikes were light racing frames-- no fenders or anything else but simple racks and our panniers. I was happy to surmount the Passo del Bracco but do not remember any particular difficulties in getting up there. I do remember getting very cold on the way back down. PJTramdack
