VARIED BIKEWAYS TO FIND OUT THE GREATEST LANDSCAPES
Many bikeways to take on by road road bike! The most audacious athletes could take on the challenge of… traveling all Lake Garda round! During the cold season, well-equipped with the right equipment, it is more pleasant to go biking around the lake, taking advantage of the little congestion you will meet. In 4 hours you’ll cope with the ultimate training!
What is essential in the first place is always the safety: so remember lights, reflectors, and so on! Although in winter it is not so bustling, the Gardesana road is always rather dangerous. For this reason, better to choose some other routes from May to mid-October!
Among the medium-level road bike trails there is also the one from Riva del Garda to the enchanted Lake Tenno, with its crystal clear water that will make you daydream! It’s also impossible to forget the trail around Cavedine Valley and the legendary Charly Gaul ascent up to Mount Bondone!
There are really a lot of bikeways to choose to improve your breath, muscles and stamina with your road bike as a loyal companion!
You can’t miss out the Salite da Mito (loosely, legendary ascents)! The greatest ascents in Trentino, included in the Giro del Trentino and Giro d’Italia, and selected by some experts like Moser and many others. Among them, there is the ascent to our Mount Stivo, you definitely can’t miss it out! Leaving from Arco, once on the top you will be welcomed by a stunning view: on your right, Arco Castle, in front of you, Mount Brione, and Lake Garda on the background.
The Garda Trentino roads are packed with road bike competitions. Among the “historic” ones, it’s worth-mentioning the GRAND PRIX DELLA MONTAGNA GARDA TRENTINO 2017; this year it will take place on the 17th and 18th June with an intensive schedule that starts in Arco and passes by Lake Tenno, Nago, Torbole and up to Santa Barbara.
