On this itinerary you bike on cycle paths and paved roads; that's why it is suitable for all kinds of bikes. The protagonist of the loop is Monte Brione: you do not have to climb on it, but you pedal all around. 

There are no ascents, so even smaller children can bike this easy trail 


Author’s recommendation

In the area of Porto San Nicolò there are several ice cream shops. Do not miss the opportunity to taste a delicious gelato!

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.

Riva del Garda - Harbour San Nicolò

Turn-by-turn directions

You leave from San Nicolò harbour and take the cycle path along the lake shore towards Torbole sul Garda till you come to the bridge over the River Sarca. Before the bridge, turn left, following directions for Arco. Cycle along the river bank for a couple of kilometres until you come to a bike grill on your left. Here you leave the cycle path, cross the main road and turn left. Head along the asphalt road before, after a few hundred metres, taking the first left. Cross secondary roads among vineyards until you come to a stop sign. Here you turn left in the direction of the hamlet of Grotta, then continue towards Sant'Alessandro, one of the outlying districts of Riva del Garda. When you come to the stop sign at the old church, turn left. On the right-hand side of the road there is a cycle path which takes you back to the starting point, San Nicolò harbour.

Sehr schöne Tour. Bestens für Kinder geeignet. Nur auf dem Sarca Radweg sollte man gut aufpassen. Einige Radfahrer sind sehr ambitioniert und mit hohem Tempo unterwegs .
