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.

After about ten metres turn left and cycle through the little town of Ceniga. Head down via Dossetto on the main road and then turn right into the underpass. When you come out the other side turn right then left. Go downhill in a southerly direction then turn left and you begin cycling on a dirt road in the “coste di Varino” area. Follow the signposts for the Anello Garda Sarca loop going in the opposite direction and you will soon be back on the asphalt road. Here you turn right and head down the road for a short distance before taking the first left turn. In a few hundred metres turn left again onto the cycle path. Here you turn right onto the road and after a short distance take the first turn on the left.
