Coffee to Ride Padova - Coffee Box
12 july 2019
Loved confirmations and great news
Thanks to Antonello, who as always treated us as guests but also as hosts.
Padova is our home, our "Departure" and for us it is always an emotion and a great pleasure to organize events and gatherings in our splendid city.
But the Livigno edition of PH Coffee to Ride was not only unforgettable for its delicious start, but also for the itinerary.
We are talking about about 100 km and 2,300 meters in altitude. Described in this way, it does not seem like a walk at all ... yet the secret of this circuit immersed in the great woods of the Engadine lies in the sweetness of its climbs.
The two passes included in the tour, in fact, the Foscagno and the Bernina, offer ascents where the average gradient percentage does not exceed 7%.
It is therefore ideal for a workout or for those who do not yet have a lot of climbing in their legs and are still on vacation in Livigno, with an irresistible desire to pedal on their own.
And the descent from the pass of over 15 km is a pleasure thanks to the splendid presence of the Bernina glacier. The road with beautiful wide curves also guarantees a lot of fun even for those who are less "technical", revealing in the end a relaxing landing in the delightful village of Pontresina. The presence of many dirt roads, but with a compact and stable bottom, allows you to create the route of your choice with the mtb, the gravel or even the bdc. Therefore ideal for those who love to manage long climbs with good fluency and dynamism.
In fact, it is not difficult to find the strength to get up on the pedals and take some shots for fun.
Of course… no performance obligations! Coffe to Ride was created with the intention of ensuring a pace accessible to all.
Livigno and Engadina: a paradise within the reach of all those who wish to start training in the high mountains!
