Brevetto del Grappa
The absolute protagonists are the 10 Climbs, all so different, but demanding and certainly unique. Hard ramps, less hard, ups and downs, but scenically unforgettable paths that pass through woods, pastures, huts, war testimonies and breathtaking views of the Veneto plain and the surrounding peaks of the Dolomites. Climbs that have nothing to envy to the great Alpine climbs: in fact, it is not easy to find passes with such an always significant difference in height, which has 1,775 meters to the summit, and so many accesses.
The plain at Cima Grappa is lost on the horizon: a unique emotion that leaves its mark... Each of us then decides what space to have in this cycling experience, which tests us, passionately, in always finding more a limit to travel, an uphill road, even within oneself, because fatigue teaches, as well as satisfying, and becomes a teacher of life, thus making us appreciate the little things of every day. This "pedaling" can also become joy and hope for some..., so here is the ultimate meaning of this and of the editions that ENERGIAPURA offers.
The ascents of the M.Grappa patent, with their uniqueness, are now NOMINATED CLIMBS. Anyone who believed in this initiative puts your name, your company at stake; so each of these 10 climbs also has a new name that adds value to your climbing and to your enjoyment.
Proceeds from the initiative will be donated to the CITTÀ DELLA SPERANZA Foundation, to which we have dedicated climb n.9.
