Ciclovia della Valtenesi

Day 1. A return trip above Desenzano del Garda through the gorgeous Valtenesi countryside. Departure and arrival: Biciclettaio Matto shop. From here, head towards the viaduct on the main road, pass through località Feniletto and continue to the start of the Ciclovia della Valtenesi. The route winds through the hills that encircle Lake Garda, among villages, castles and magnificent views. On arrival at Salò, there's a short but steep climb towards Cisano before taking the lovely cycle track through the olive groves, descending gradually to the wonderful Baia del Vento. We continue towards Manerba to one of the most spectacular viewpoints on the entire lake: the Rocca, a nature reserve perched high above Lake Garda. From here we head to Moniga and the Recyclage Bike Cafè for an obligatory rest and an ice-cold beer, as well as a look at our showroom. We then head back to Biciclettaio Matto via the scenic Vò coast.
