Nice climb starts from the 9th km from Bormio. I did this one 2 times up and 2 times down. Down is ok as you are faster than the traffic. Up is suicide.There is too much traffic (especially unexperienced tourists in the mountains), they go very fast and they come very close to your handlebar. Although I have quiet good experience in climbing between traffic, it is hard to go up safely. Bikers better take lights in the tunnels. The climb is about 6% and it ''s quiet constant. Be aware of the bumps and the fact the road is wet in the tunnels when you come down. Views are ok but certainly not the nicest you can see on cols in the alps. I want do this one again only when the road is "for bikers only."
