Sweet climate, scent of freshly blossomed flowers, slopes covered with Mediterranean scrub, deep green mountains that frame the bright blue of the lake. This is spring at Garda Trentino, the most beautiful season to experience a territory that has inspired the greatest poets over the centuries.

It is here, in this unique natural context, suspended between the lake and the mountains that Garda Trentino is the ideal destination for a holiday dedicated to outdoor sports and remise en forme after the long winter. The cycle paths, suitable for the whole family, which easily connect the most beautiful places, the long mountain trails for mountain biking that bring altitude or simple urban walks to enjoy the historic centres. Here in Garda Trentino, the bicycle is an extension of the human body, perfect for discovering breath-taking views and experiencing ancient villages and towns, mountains and valleys.

Throughout Trentino, spring fascinates visitors with the slow awakening of nature that gives bright colours and alive, but while in many areas is still a gamble to enjoy the two wheels, here in Garda Trentino is the perfect season to experience outdoor activities and especially cycling. Long days and mild temperatures are ideal for a real holiday on two wheels with the whole family. Cycling admiring the lake kissed by the sun becomes an experience that involves all the senses.

Here there are many accommodation facilities “bike friendly” and specialized shops that have bike rental and maintenance services, including modern e-bikes to live a two-wheeled experience at 360 degrees and without worries.

In spring, then, it will be a pleasure to stop for “gourmet stops” and relaxing in the many bike grills along the bike paths where you can enjoy nature and taste typical dishes, maybe admiring the lake and taking advantage of the sun to begin to gild your skin!

Also in spring there is also the professional sports competition Tour of the Alps, a competition that is structured in five stages through Tyrol, South Tyrol and Trentino. The race takes place over five days and extends over 711 km with an altitude difference of 13,630 metres. It crosses the three territories, symbolically uniting them through the values they share: love for the bicycle, all outdoor activities in general, nature and respect for it. This year the final stage is just with arrival in Riva del Garda. A real prelude to the famous Giro d’Italia here in Garda Trentino!

And how can we forget the highlight of the two-wheeled event of Garda Trentino, the Bike Festival?

The mountain bike season starts here, with the famous Garda Trentino Bike Festival in Riva del Garda.

Every year the already large number of visitors and participants from all over Europe grows and for many it is an excellent opportunity to observe live, often in preview, the news of the various brands that most interest the mtb market. It’s really an “all about bike”, a dream for all the fans that every year in Riva del Garda have the opportunity to test new models, understand the market trend, attend shows and performances, but also live experiences and entertainment dedicated 100% to the world of two wheels. An event for everyone: professionals, enthusiasts and the public.

Spring on Lake Garda Trentino is to be experienced by bike. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a mountain bike, a city bike, a very light carbon racing bike or a “very democratic” e-bike: the season of flowers and the sweet awakening of nature here has all the flavour of freedom, the same that you can only experience on one bike.
