The Long Bike Experience is the perfect opportunity for those who love riding their bike from dawn to dusk. The trail combines the effort of the climb, the adrenaline during the descent and the unique satisfaction of enjoying breathtaking views.
The first section, from Vesio to the Nota Pass, is perfect to warm one’s spirits. We recommend starting early in the morning. You can’t miss having a coffee at the Rifugio degli Alpini, before starting the first long descent. This will take you directly to the shores of fascinating Lake Ledro, where you can enjoy a refreshing swim. From there, you’ll ride again along picturesque Sentiero Ponale, an old road linking Lake Garda and the Ledro Valley, known throughout Europe for its breathtaking views, with about 10 km of tunnels and turns until Riva del Garda.
At the port of Riva, you’ll be able to finally enjoy a little rest, as you board the ferry to Limone. Here, the last section of this amazing ride will begin, a climb through the tunnels and the breathtaking hairpin bends of the Strada della Forra. Or if you feel too tired, just wait for the first bus to Tremosine!
