the first two kilometers of the most spectacular cycle path in Europe will be inaugurated: Garda by Bike .
The track will allow you to ride or walk enjoying a breathtaking view of the lake up to the border with the province of Trento.
The Garda cycle path will be a unique worldwide work, over 140 kilometers long, which forms the Ciclovia del Garda, integrated and connected with other important cycle paths.
The Garda cycle path will connect Capo Reamol to Limone, on the border with Trentino Alto Adige, along the Strada Statale 45bis Gardesana with some breathtaking cantilever passages and a veritable walkway overlooking the lake.
Antonio Martinelli, councilor for public works, interviewed by SiViaggia , commented a few months ago: “You will have the sensation of ‘walking’ by bike on the water. There will be some beautiful panoramic points, such as Capo Reamol and the border between the province of Brescia and Trento, with headlands from where you can admire the whole lake “ . The end of the cycle path coincides with the war memorial of the First World War.
In addition to giving tourists a breathtaking view , the new cycle-pedestrian track is also beautiful to see: the flooring was made of wood-like material, but resistant to the elements, and along the whole stretch runs a very thin protective barrier of steel which has less visual impact on the landscape. The steel beams that support it are anchored directly to the overhanging rocks, the parapet or the water.
For years there was talk of the construction of a cycle path that runs along the entire circumnavigation of Lake Garda, joining the Trentino side to the Verona and Brescia in a single itinerary of 140 km dedicated to cycling.
Over the years, some cycling routes had already been completed and opened to cyclists, such as the one between Torbole and Riva del Garda, where it joins the Valle dei Laghi cycle path towards Salò.
The cycle path ‘Garda by Bike’ will be connected to the Ciclovia del Sole and the Ciclovia Vento (the cycling route of the Po). Once completed it will offer a long-distance network at a national scale of over one thousand kilometers long .
The Lake Garda is one of the havens for cyclists in Europe, especially for visitors from Germany, Austria and those from northern Europe who each year reach the area by the thousands to enjoy the mild climate and the numerous services dedicated just to those who spend their days by bike.
