771. Garda Trentino Bike Marathon Ronda Piccola (All Mountain)
The shortest route of the famous Bike Marathon, part of the Riva del Garda Bike Festival is aimed at well prepared cyclists or e-bikers who enjoy climbing.
Although it is the shortest route of the "Garda Trentino Bike Marathon", the elevation profile certainly makes up for it. The climbs are considerable reaching over 20% in some sections. The terrain varies quite frequently: from asphalt and concrete to forest roads and gravel sections. You will find a little bit of everything!
Regarding the race start and finish points the first section takes you along the main road between Riva and Arco, towards Varignano. There are a couple of options to avoid this however by following the signposted routes 749 (starting from Riva or Torbole) OR route 745 (starting from Arco instead). As described, the climbs and descents are very demanding and the type of terrain must always be taken in to consideration.
