This itinerary is perfect for a relaxing ride in a flat area near to the main towns. This makes it ideal for anyone who wants to take small children on their first bicycle trip.
This itinerary is a loop around Monte Brione, the spur of rock which separates Riva del Garda from Torbole and is the unmistakeable profile of Garda Trentino. It is mainly a ride through built up areas, running along cycle paths and back roads which cut across the countryside at the foot of the mountain.
Since the entire route is on the flat, this tour presents no difficulties of any kind and is even suitable for small children as long as you watch out when crossing the roads.
The stretch of the cycle path which links Torbole and Riva del Garda is without doubt one of the most popular with visitors and residents for the marvellous views it affords over Lake Garda. It is particularly busy in the summer season so watch out for the people walking along the cycle path or crossing it to get to the beach.
Stop off in one of the bars along the beach for an aperitivo or delicious ice cream with a lake view. What better way to wind up your bike ride?
The cycle pathe in Trentino are usually closed by the local authorities from November, 15th to April, 15th. Exceptions are the cycle paths along the River Adige and in the Basso Sarca/Garda Trentino, where cycling is prohibited only in case of ice or during a snowfall.
Riva del Garda is easily accessible (about 18 km) from the Rovereto Sud - Lago di Garda Nord motorway exit.
