Tour between Lake Garda and the Adige Valley
A route of over 100 km, but free from particular difficulties. This loop is a mixture of the fabulous Lake Garda coast and the green landscape of the Valle dell’Adige.
<p>The Affi Loop, as those who adore the Upper Garda area call it, is a <strong>"classic" tour for the group rides</strong> of the amateur cyclists from the Garda Trentino area.</p>
<p>During the first half of the itinerary, we skirt the eastern shore of Lake Garda, where short tunnels alternate with picturesque lakeside locations. With a short, easy climb towards Costermano, we leave the view of the lake behind and a fun roller-coaster section takes us to the Valle dell’Adige. Once we reach Rivoli, the return northwards continues on the cycle path, from which we catch glimpses of the majestic Castle of Avio and the many vineyards that characterise this valley.</p>
<p>The total distance might scare off the faint-hearted. But this is not the case with the gradients which, in the only brief uphill section, are gentle and within everyone’s capabilities.</p>
