From the large parking of the market (0,0 km) between the centre of Salò and the area of sports facilities, cycle to the south along via Zane, then turn right in via Montessori. At the Stop sign (0,9 km) turn left in via Muro until you reach the small square in the village of Villa (2,1 km), where you can continue along the cycling road headed to Lonato del Garda. Cycling on the steep road on top of the hill, among wood and vineyards, you will reach a road going slightly uphill (5,2 km) where you should tund left to reach the lakes of Sovenigo three mirrors of water hidden in the woods that flush pink with waterlilies between July and August. Here you leave the cycling road to Lonato del Garda to continue toward via dei Laghi up to the crossroads with SP25 and via Roma. Follow this road headed to Salò and you will reach the centre of Puegnago del Garda (8,1 km), where there is a castle and the parish church. Here, it is worth stopping at the village square, which is like a balcony over both the lake and the vineyard-covered Valtenesi hillsides.  After the village, turn left towards the village of Palude. Cycle along via XXV Aprile up to SP25, which reaches the village of Cunettone going north (10,5 km). Pay attention on this busy road and continue towards via Zette to turn left on via Panoramica (11,3 km). Here you will find a proper cycling road that takes you back to the starting point (15,5 km). From the market car park, we suggest extending your excursion a little further to the lively town of Salò with its lakeside promenade around the bay and elegant old town.
