Carry on along the bike path accompanied by the blue-green hues of the River Adige. From Rovereto, head westward on a gentle climb to get stunning views of Lake Garda from the pass. Complete your day with a short downhill section and take Riva del Garda’s twisting medieval streets all the way to your hotel.
