Easy tour on paved and unpaved secondary roads through plum and kiwi orchards and wineyards. It passes also by the Roman Bridge in Ceniga, famous for its beach on the River Sarca.

Author’s recommendation

Towards Ceniga, you come to the Roman bridge and the beach underneath where in summer you can always stop for a refreshing dip in the river

Safety information

  1. Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.
  2. Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.
  3. Always wear your helmet.
  4. Make sure your front and rear lights are working.
  5. Put out your arm to give advance warning of your intention to change position and before you do anything, check there are no vehicles coming up behind you.
  6. Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!
  7. Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.
  8. If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file.
  9. You've got a bell: use it to let pedestrians know you're there. Don't ride on footpaths. If you have to then get off and push your bike.
  10. If there are cycle paths use them. It's your safety that's at stake and the rules of the road say you must.

Turn-by-turn directions

You set out from the main square in Dro (Piazza della Repubblica). Head down via Cesare Battisti following directions for Oltra where you will come to the football pitch. Cycle along the asphalt and stay on the main road. Cross the bridge over the River Sarca, turn left and cycle along a dirt track through olive groves with short stretches up and downhill. When you come to Maso Lizzone go straight along the asphalt surface. Cycle through vineyards and olive groves along the banks of the River Sarca. When you come to the “Roman Bridge” in Ceniga, cross the bridge taking care to stay on your right. Turn left at the stop sign onto the main road, then turn right after the car park. After about ten metres turn left and cycle through the little town of Ceniga. Head down via Dossetto on the main road and then turn right into the underpass. When you come out the other side turn right then left. Go downhill in a southerly direction then turn left and you begin cycling on a dirt road in the “coste di Varino” area. Follow the signposts for the Anello Garda Sarca loop going in the opposite direction and you will soon be back on the asphalt road. Here you turn right and head down the road for a short distance before taking the first left turn. In a few hundred metres turn left again onto the cycle path. Here you turn right onto the road and after a short distance take the first turn on the left. After a few hundred metres turn left again onto the cycle path and cycle through vineyards to the town of Dro. At this point follow directions for the cycle path, turn right at the roundabout and you are back to the point you started from.
