Cycling & mountain biking in Trento
Many people don’t know it yet, but it is true: Trento and environs are an ideal territory for cyclists and mountain bikers. On the one hand this is due to the fact, that the city is located on an important junction. Therefore it is a perfect starting point for excursions in every direction.
On the other hand during the last years the province Trentino has made an effort to enlarge the cycle tracks, to create new tours and to develop new offers for cyclists. Whether unhurried bicyclists or mountain bike pros, young and old bikers, between mountains and valleys around Trento anybody finds something special.
Probably the most famous bicycle route of the region is the so called Etschtal cycle path, following the course of the valley. Ambitious sportsmen can cycle northwards till South Tyrol and Austria, southwards to Lake Garda. Among the most popular mountain bike tours should be mentioned those on the local mountain Mt. Bondone. And a very special experience: You take the historical light railway Trento-Malè into the valley Val di Sole and turn back by bicycle.
