LAKE GARDA - BEST OF
One of the best cycling destinations in Europe is Lake Garda: thank to its mild temperatures and the good weather it is pretty much the go-to destination for many cyclists looking for some sun and smooth roads.
Starting in Torbole we are going first to ride on the brand new cycle path connecting Riva del Garda with Limone.
After leaving Limone we are going to ride to the fascinating Strada della Forra, which was named by Winston Churchill "the 8th world wonder" and it is basically a narrow road climbing up inside a canyon. At the top of the road we are going to enjoy the view and have a recovery break.
Then we will move on to the inside valley above Campione del Garda and then starting a long downhill to the beautiful villages of Tignale enjoying the beautiful sight over Lake Garda.
Later, we will reach Toscolano Maderno, where we will take the ferry to Torri del Benaco on the other side of the lake and where we will start our next climb to San Zeno di Montagna.
Then, we will descend to Castelletto di Brenzone and heading to Malcesine, where we will choose to do our next climb, if we still have energies left. This climb is called "Panoramica", and the name says it all.
The last part of our tour will take us to our initial starting point in Torbole.
In a nutshell the tour will take 6-7 hours with a length of approximately 110 km by 2000 m elevation gain
wind/rain jacket and cycling bib shorts
water bottle, cycling helmet, sunglasses, bike rear light (front light is also preferred), snacks and energy drinks
