Road Cycling in Lake Garda

We can tailor make this trip for you

What we love About Road Cycling in Lake Garda

We love...Daily Guided Riding
Our guides know the best rides, the hidden roads and the hidden gem lookouts across the lake. We have 3 daily rides each day allowing you to ride anything from about 50 to 120km. You can choose your ride on the day and each ride will be fully supported with van, guiding, and snacks.
We love...The Views
Arguably the most stunning European lake, the views across Lake Garda are simply breathtaking. Lookout across Bardolino and you will see its tower standing triumphantly over this beautiful lakeside town, with Isola del Garda island in the background. From nearly everywhere, you can see spectacular mountain ranges plunging into the crystal blue waters of the lake.
We love...Italian Food and Wine
You can truly experience La Dolce Vita in Lake Garda. The food is phenomenal with some of the best pizza and pasta you will experience. Enjoy a glass of red and be sure to taste the local wines as you will pass rows and rows of vineyards on the hillsides that you ride.

Suggested Holiday

You can begin and end this trip on any day of the week and our packages are completely flexible, so long as you stay for a minimum of 3 nights.

We will pick you up at Verona airport and take you to the shores of Lake Garda. We are also able to provide transfers from other airports if you require.

Each day, we have 3 guided rides that leave the hotel, fully supported by experienced local guides and support van. You can choose which ride you would like to join and they are classed as follows.

Classic Riding. This is for experienced cyclists who ride at a moderate pace and are comfortable on various terrains, including longer hill climbs, riding in a group. Our Classic rides will generally take the group on a 50-60 km ride with hills that might extend for 3-4 km, and smaller undulating terrain.  Cyclists should expect to be on the bike between 3 and 5 hours, including stops and the riding is usually at a speed of about 20-25kmh.

Enthusiastic Riding. The enthusiastic category of riding adds just a little more riding challenge to the Classic Ride. The Enthusiasts will still ride the same roads as the classic ride, and see the same beautiful scenery, but they will get a few more opportunities to test out their cycling abilities on some longer and/or steeper climbs, ride at a faster pace, and take on a few longer loops to add more Km/miles to their route.  This is our most requested ride level and the riding is usually at a speed of about 25-30kmh.

Epic Riding. This is available for the most serious riders, who will tackle the longest, toughest routes, with distances ranging from 90-130 km, and typically at a pace of around 25-35kph, depending upon terrain.

Your trip will be full board and we also include a Pinarello Gan as part of our package. If you would like to upgrade to a Pinarello Dogma F10 or a Pinarello Nytro e-road bike, let us know and we can organise this for you.

Area InformationFor Lake Garda

For La Dolce Vita, look no further than Lake Garda, arguably the most beautiful European lake. 7% of all tourists to Italy head for the lake’s 90 miles of shoreline. Chocolate-box towns appear all round the lake whilst spectacular old church spires stand triumphantly above the buildings.

The dramatic mountainsides flank the lake and make for spectacular views and even better cycling. Watersports are also a favourite and you will see windsurfers and kiteboarders catching the lake’s winds. Vineyards populate the north of the lake whilst the mild Mediterranean climate in the south if the lake sees an array of olive trees and lemon groves lining the hillsides.
