thanks for the info of the bus. Yes, I was planning on flying into
Milan and then taking the train to Tirano. I was looking at a map and
it looks like its only about 24 miles to Bormio from Tirano. Do you know
if the road going that way would be good for riding on? I wouldn't mind
stretching my legs after the long flight over and train ride.
