766. Giro della Busa (Cross Country)
A short ride, within everybody's reach, that touches upon the three communes of la “Busa”: the local dialect name for the land between Riva del Garda, Torbole and Arco.
This itinerary, with a length of 16 kilometres and an altitude difference of around only 200 meters is suited to a range of abilities.
The term “busa” identifies the basin of land at the very North of Lake Garda: between Riva del Garda, Torbole and Arco. The itinerary forms a loop, offering a diverse range of view points and refreshment stops.
If you would like to do the route with children then please be aware that: The only really challenging feature of this ride, from a physical point of view, is the climb from Torbole to Nago: around 1.5 km in length, with an average gradient of 10%, and constant sun exposure. It is also recommended to pay particular attention to the two main road crossings.
