A three-day tour for the slow bike, suitable for those who ride for passion and not for competition, willing to discover new places on an enjoyable and slow journey.
This three-day tour is dedicated to slow bike lovers, who like to ride for passion and not competition, but who are driven by the desire to discover new places. The first of the three days consists of riding the cycle path of Mella, connecting Brescia to Bovegno for 40km. The path encounters mixed surfaces (unpaved and asphalt) seemingly flat at first glance, but slowly inclined along the ascent to Valtrompia. There are many points of historic and cultural interest, that narrate and identify Valtrompia.
50% unpaved road, 50% asphalt.
The second day between Valtrompia and Vallesabbia is dedicated to high mountain landscapes. Starting from Bovegno, after a few kilometres, you’ll ascend along an asphalt road in the direction of Giogo del Maniva, the northernmost pass connecting the two valleys. After recharging and regaining your energy, descend to Bagolino, which we suggest you visit because of its character and peculiar identity.
Proceeding, you’ll ascend to Cerreto and descend to arrive in Ponte Caffaro, a village of Valsabbia bordering with Trentino. At this point, you’ll follow the main road running along Lake Idro, until reaching the village of Idro.
The last tour day brings you back to the city, crossing Vallesabbia from north to south, following the cycle path from Barghe. The route is flat and slightly inclined towards Gavardo. As in the case of the other routes, there are many points of historical and cultural interest to visit: choose them from our list and plan your day!
