The bike path sticks close to the River Adige on its way to Rovereto. Then a gentle ascent leads west to the pass and your reward: stunning views over Lake Garda. Round your day off with one final section downhill and take Riva del Garda’s twisting lanes all the way to your hotel.
Challenge: 48 km, 150 m ascent, 500 m descent
Optional extra route (45 km)
Book an extra night in Riva del Garda and cycle the Valley of the Lakes, a spectacular loop ride into ‘Valle dei Laghi’. Pause to take pictures in palm-studded Arco, with its medieval castle perched on a rock. Vineyards and apple orchards lead to crystal-clear Lago di Cavedine and a scenic lunch stop by below Montes Brento and Casale. Traversing rocky slopes in Marocche di Dro you cycle back to Arco then take the Garda lakeshore ‘home’ to Riva del Garda.
Challenge: 45 km / 30 mi, 390 m ascent, 390 m descent
