A technically very easy tour, starting and finishing in Tenno. Mostly on asphalt, the route can be enjoyed with a gravel bike instead of a Mountain Bike.
Starting from the highest point along the whole route, i.e. the village of Tenno. You will contend first with the descent, then the ascent: drawing a ring around the cliff on which Tenno Castle stands. The closure of a passage in the valley of the Dos delle Strie has forced a partial modification of the route, depriving it of a short - but enjoyable part of gravel road. From a technical point of view, this route is accessible to practically everyone. It is only the gradient in the first part of the ascent, exceeding 10%, which could prove to be a challenge for some.
