760. New Velo Grand Tour (All Mountain)
Monte Velo is a classic destination for bikers in Garda Trentino. In this case, the tour takes you over the pass towards the peaceful countryside of Val di Gresta.
This tour, over 40 km long and with an elevation gain of about 1450 m, is quite demanding from a physical point of view. It can be done from April to November, but in recent years, it can often be done in the winter period too. The route, initially on a paved road from Arco to Carobbi, is mostly on forest trails, with good going on the uphill stretches.
The most difficult section from a technical point of view is on the downhill stretch and it is between Passo Santa Barbara and Maso Naranch: never exposed, it is all in the woods, with going rough and at times loose. On the downhill stretch too there are a number of sections on paved road.
