Ballino - Durone - Stenico
A taxing roller coaster of a tour, both in terms of distance and its high gradient. Low volume traffic and characteristic landscape. The cycle path that goes from Ponte Arche to Sarche is amazing.
This itinerary proposes the climbs to the Ballino and Duron passes. They are not exceptionally tough but require an effort that untrained cyclists might pay a high price for in the second part of the tour. In fact, after these two challenging elements, we remain at an altitude and head for Stenico, a location mostly famous for its castle.
The road flattens out again thanks to the Limarò cycle path, a spectacular descent overlooking the cliff where the river Sarca flows. The last challenges of the day are the short sections in the area of Lake Cavedine, after which the route is exclusively downhill.
