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.

Equipment

Riding your bike requires specific clothing and equipment, even for relatively short and easy trips. It is always better to be prepared… e.g. for bad weather or a drop your energy levels. The unexpected things also make up a part of the fun!

Do not compare a road bike with a mountain bike. They are very different, especially in technical terms, and facing a hill with a road bike could be much more difficult than facing the same hill with a MTB. Therefore, remember to throughly evaluate the type of route you plan to do and the locations you plan to cross. Do not forget to consider the current season. Has it been raining? Attention: the paint of the crosswalk could be very slick.

What do I need to bring on my bike tour?

Turn-by-turn directions

From Riva del Garda take the cycle path to Torbole sul Garda, afterwards follow the “Gardesana Orientale (Eastern Gardesana)”road, which flanks the Lake Garda for 10 km, leading for some stretches into tunnels.

Passing from Trentino into the region Veneto you reach Malcesine. Carry on always flanking the lake, passing through the characteristic veronese villages of Brenzone, Castelletto, Torri del Benaco and Garda. At the roundabout go left uphill in the direction of Costermano, where the Pre-Alps start. Continue past Caprino Veronese and turn left being ready to tackle an almost 30 km long climb passing through Ferrara Monte Baldo and ending with the apparently flat ground taking to the Graziani mountain dew (1610 m).

From here on starts  the likewise long downhill road passing through S. Valentino and Brentonico leading to Mori. Take the cycle path towards Nago, passing through the biotope of the Lake Loppio and the S. Giovanni Pass. At the roundabout at the end of the town of Nago go left, go downhill towards Torbole sul Garda and return to Riva del Garda. 

 We remind that headlights and rearlights as well as the use of reflecting suspenders are obligatory in tunnels, even considering that most of these are illuminated.
