Lindau-Pisa Long-Distance

From Lake Constance to the Leaning Tower – 23/06-1/07/2018

Over the Alps. Taking in the prestigious high passes. Stelvio Pass. Passo di Gavia. Passo del Vivione. Stop-off at Lake Garda. Those are the ingredients for a transalpine classic. With our long-distance Lindau-Pisa we are adding another one. We cross the Po Valley, conquer the tranquil Apennine passes, take a dip in the Mediterranean at Lerici, and round off our tour at the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Transalpine extended, Epic Climbs-style.

Set off from (almost) home, enjoy great passes in like-minded company, finish off at one of Europe's dream destinations. Those are the ingredients for our long-distance rides. And we garnish the whole with a large pinch of Italian attitude. Sport and la dolce vita. The leaning tower awaits.

Let's head south!


Impressions


The Guides

Tom – Cake-Face Tom

quäldich-Guide Thomas Brunner

With his sunny disposition and laid-back Upper Bavarian nature, he's not easily upset. 2016 Guide Discovery of the Year.

Stefan – the Transalpinist

quäldich-Guide Stefan Fottner

Veteran of the fast groups with impressive mileage in his legs and an even more impressive race record. Very much at home in the mountains and looking forward to his guiding debut in 2017.

Paul – The Pilot

quäldich-Guide Paul Velten

A friendly, cheerful Dortmunder and a huge believer in the dolce vita. Totally devoted to looking after his flock and, once on the road, it's diesel to the top and jet fuel to the bottom.

Sille – Sport Support

quäldich-Guide Sille Stefaniak

Our Sille loves following the group in the broom wagon, in first or second gear. She dishes out excellent sympathy to everyone that approaches her and her vehicle suffering from exhaustion or a crash. Her lunchtime buffets are legendary, and her sports massages save the day for many. Founder, boss and the good fairy of Sille's Sport Support.
