A glimpse of Veneto
This is a very tough tour with a series of climbs and descents which will make lovers of twisty roads very happy. Leaving Rovereto the road winds towards the Altipiani Cimbri passing through Castel Beseno which is perched on a hill. The Passo Borcola marks the boundary with the Veneto region and the towns of Rocchette, Thiene and Schio are well worth a visit. After a short stop on the flatland there is another series of switchback bends crossing Pian delle Fugazze and reaching the foot of the Pasubio Massif, where many great battles were fought during WWI. From the wild surroundings of Vallarsa the tour turns back to Rovereto from which it continues to the Brentonico Plateau and the winding road to Monte Baldo, a mountain range overhanging lake Garda, then on to the countryside around Verona (a stop at the lakeside and at the rock shrine of Madonna della Corona is a must). A Mediterranean breeze will welcome participants when riding through the lake resorts of Malcesine and Torbole and, after the final bends through Passo Santa Barbara and Val Gresta (the birthplace of the Trentino Organic Cuisine) you will reach Rovereto for a well-earned rest.
