Designed specifically for the Bike Festival, this easy but fun route allows you to test the MTBs presented at the expo stands by the various brands.

A pretty  easy tour of 8.5 km and 200 m difference in level. It starts on the cycle path and then climbs, surrounded by olive trees, along secondary asphalt roads.

The slope is gradually increasing to even reach 30%, ideal therefore to appreciate the assistance of engines, but remember, to avoid unpleasant breakdowns in transmission, be prepared with not hard gears. The descent is on an old unpaved road, which crosses the main road to Lake Tenno in several places.
Pay close attention during the descent to the various crossings of the main road.
