An easy ride, all downhill, which takes you from Lake Tenno to Lake Garda, through medieval villages and vineyards, with spectacular views of the lake all the way.
This itinerary takes advantage of the summer Bicibus bike shuttle which takes you to Lake Tenno, the starting point for the trip.
The route winds downhill then, all the way, passing through some of the loveliest and most panoramic places in the Tenno area, a natural balcony overlooking Lake Garda.
The tour could be the perfect way to get back after a day at the lake (bathing allowed and lifeguard service in the summer months) or exploring medieval villages (in particular Canale di Tenno, in the Club of the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy, and Frapporta, directly below Tenno Castle, and discovering local specialities (such as carne salada).
The tour is mostly on back roads where traffic is limited, apart from the stretch from Ville del Monte to Tenno where you ride down the main road and need to pay particular attention.
Don't forget you camera. You will have come across plenty of places along the way where you will want to take some photos!
