Racing bike tours on lake Garda

Lake Garda is a paradise for racing cyclists – with varied routes, great views and beautiful nature. Here you find an example for a tour, offered by Gardasee Rennrad.

Tour Example 3: Lakes

Start / Finish: Torri del Benaco

KM: 135

Elevation: 1480 m

Parking: car parc of Torri del Benaco

You take the ferry that goes from Torri to Toscolano, where the actual start of the tour begins. After a short "warm up" on the Gardesana, the tour begins with a gentle slope. One of the highlights is certainly the artificial lake Valvestino with its 124 m high dam, which is located in the homonymous valley. Wonderful also the Passo San Rocco with a height of 946 m. The third lake "Lago d'Idro" is ideal for a coffee break. Back to Lake Garda the route now is always slightly downhill. Passing Salò, Desenzano, Peschiera and Bardolino the route leads back to Torri. In order to gather a few more meters, you can go from Garda up to Albisano and from there back down directly to Torri del Benaco.

Tip: Torri del Benaco has a very nice beach where you can have a good rest after the tour!

Important: bring cash for the ferry and check the timetable before you start! Cost is approximately 8 Euro per person and bike. For actual timetables click here >>
