Just back from a little tour with the bike. Bolzano - Ghent. Approx 1100 km.
For those who are interested, the dolomites are just great!

Doc, if you like doing the typical "tornanti", I can recommend you the Manghen Pass. Some of them are very narrow! Maybe the narrowest I have ever done. Not easy with pillion.
One side of the pass is much better. i can't remember which one we took to go up. The only thing I know it was the narrow side we took to go up.
Advantage of that pass is there are no busses. Disadvantage, a lot of cyclists.

We have a tour planned with the Manghen Pass. I heard from some work colleagues that it's one not to miss - so it's on the list. We going from north to south. We're based in Klausen at the Bischofhof Hotel - can't wait.
