Colle del Nivolet

Have you climbed the Colle del Nivolet from Locana? First featured in the Giro in 2019, which sealed the alternate road around the tunnel mid-way up…

A friend and I stopped off in Locana this summer just to ride the Nivolet, such is its reputation. If staying in Locana you can’t go past @camered_aria and have Rosita and Mattia look after you, absolutely fabulous!

Gran Paradiso National Park is sensational and on a Sunday in July/August authorities close the upper reaches of the road to traffic. Mike Cotty @ ColCollective does a nice tempter… ;O)
