Lake Garda has a mild weather for many months a year, a wide network of cycle paths, streets with little traffic and ancient villages rich in history, that allow you to discover its hidden corners. The bicycle is the ideal way to enjoy landscapes, routes and towns far from traffic.
The pleasure of cycling in the midst of nature, towards cities of art, ancient villages or solitary peaks is a sensation well known to all cycle tourism enthusiasts. Stage after stage, the slow progress of the bicycle allows you to fully appreciate the territory that you cross, offering unique emotions.
All the bike lovers can travel along many routes, each one suited to your "two-wheeled" lifestyle!
City bikes lead you to travel along the flat roads that run along the Garda Lake or its emissary, the Mincio river, with stages that let you discover restaurants and bars, where you can enjoy tasty meals. Mountain bikes or fat bikes are ideal for riding among the hills and the vineyards.
Those who instead prefer speed, can go faster with the most modern racing bikes, climb the morainic hills and feel like a champion in Valpolicella, just like an athlete during a bike race.
Modern e-bikes are perfect for those who want to discover the surroundings of Lake Garda and are not well trained to ride long distances, or simply prefer a "push" to get to that tavern (osteria) on the hill.
