Mountain biking and cycling at Lake Garda
Lake Garda is a dream destination for beginner cyclists and professional mountain bikers of any age. You can discover the most beautiful corners of the Lake from your saddle. The surrounding mountains have infinite footpaths, gravel roads, old supply routes and excellent bike paths. You can enjoy a ride along the beach or in the rolling countryside with many suitable bike tours and tracks to choose from!
You will be rewarded with sensational views from any track. However, if you want to try a long journey or tour, you can reach far into the Trentino mountains where your extra effort will pay off with some remarkable scenes. While mountain bike novices will find shorter but equally rewarding routes, mountain bikers with an excellent physical condition and a lot of practice will have almost unlimited opportunities.
Beginners and families with children use convenient cycle paths around the lake to visit interesting towns such as Peschiera, Desenzano and Sirmione. Trips to the picturesque rolling countryside and the lush vineyards are highly recommended. Leisurely rides can be short excursions, but can also take entire days perfectly combining the culinary delights of the region. You'll discover many rustic inns, traditional wineries and excellent restaurants along the way.
When you bonk, a break from riding is necessary. Rest and relaxation should also be on the list, and what better way is there to compliment your hard work and relieve tired muscles than with a swim in the freshwater lake and then soaking up the warmth from the summer sun.
Cyclists and bikers with specific requirements at Lake Garda can enjoy the accommodation of particular Bike Hotels set up and ready to cater to your every need. So, what are you waiting for? Pack your kit and go biking at Lake Garda!
