Ciclabile dei Laghi cycle path: Vezzano - Terlago

Valle dei Laghi
Duration in hours
Distance in km
Suggested period

A section of the cycle path that connects the village of Vezzano to Lake Terlago.

The cycle path of the lakes is about 14 km long (return trip) starting from the village of Vezzano and ending at Lake Terlago. In the first section, the route alternates between uphill and flatter sections until it approaches Mount Mezzana. From this point onwards, continue downhill to the Trilacum sports ground, and then on towards Lake Terlago. The cycle path ends at the lake car park, not far from the beach, where there are two bars, a restaurant and pizzeria and a wakeboarding facility. The return is along the same route to the village of Vezzano.

The cycle path is suitable for all types of bicycles as it is well paved and maintained. Families with children can also ride it, bearing in mind that it is not a classic flat cycle path, but alternates uphill and downhill stretches which require a certain level of autonomy in pedalling and braking.

Safety guidelines
  1.  Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.
  2. Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.
  3. Always wear your helmet.
  4. Make sure your front and rear lights are working.
  5. Put out your arm to give advance warning of your intention to change position and before you do anything, check there are no vehicles coming up behind you.
  6. Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!
  7. Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.
  8. If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file.
  9. You've got a bell: use it to let pedestrians know you're there. Don't ride on footpaths. If you have to then get off and push your bike.
  10. If there are cycle paths use them. It's your safety that's at stake and the rules of the road say you must.
