The aim of this tour is to cross the well-known Valle dei Laghi. The stunning beauty of Lake Cavedine is enhanced by the lively fishing industry in Lake Santa Massenza and the romanticism of Lake Toblino. But first, we make a brief stop-off in Terlago where we can admire Lake Terlago.
A pleasant, quiet itinerary that is almost traffic-free. But this doesn’t mean that it’s an easy ride. On the contrary...technically speaking, the route is something of a roller coaster. Overall, the climbs are not impossible, but they feature many short bursts that could destroy your legs if you’re out of training.

Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.
Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.
Always wear your helmet.
Make sure your front and rear lights are working.
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.
Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!
Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.
If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file.
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.
If there are cycle paths use them. It's your safety that's at stake and the rules of the road say you must.

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.
