Mountain biking is the best way to fully immerse yourself in the fascinating area surrounding Lake Garda and discover its landscapes, colours and scents.
Starting directly from the lakeside of Bardolino you will pedal for 41 km or 65 km along the paths and dirt tracks that surround Bardolino. A route of undeniable beauty thanks to the panoramic passages with long stretches immersed in the lush olive groves and vineyards, along woodland paths and sporty fun thanks to the continuous alternation of climbs and descents.
Now in its ninth edition, constantly attended by over 1000 participants each year, it is a race with a perfect combination of sport and tourism. After the first uphill stretch, suitable for thinning out the group, the race returns almost to the shores of the lake and then immediately up into the Rock della Rocca woods.
The central stretch is very fast, a thousand changes of direction, a thousand ups and downs to reach the foot of Mount Moscal, which will be faced from the east side. Now it's time for the Val Sorda, a fast single track full of fords, at the end of which the Marathon riders will head back up the Paerno ramp to start the second lap, while the Classic riders will head straight for Bardolino and its lakeside promenade to finish the route.
Even the Marathon, after tackling the Val Sorda for the second time, will head straight for Bardolino for the finish.
