Safety guidelines

For the Ponale road: where fences are missing, families with children should be particularly cautious. Bikers must limit their speed and be aware of pedestrians. The road is unpaved.

Between Prè and Molina: the road is rather steep and partly paved with concrete. 

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Punto di partenza
Riva del Garda
Follow the Ponale path, the old link between Lake Ledro and Lake Garda, and bypass the main road by turning left before the last tunnel and joining the cycling trail. Once in Prè, turn right to enter the village, cycle past the church and then straight ahed on an asphalt (partly concrete) road leading to Molina.  From there pedal along the Ponale torrent and then along the southern shore of Lake Ledro, passing by Pur. From the Circolo Vela (i.e. sailing association) on there is a paved cycling path which is almost flat and leads to Lake Ampola.
