Suggested period

The roads of the area that hosts Salò and the surrounding areas represent for cyclists and cycle tourists a privileged area full of opportunities, for challenging workouts to be carried over long distances as well as for pure fun along the shortest routes. At a short distance from the historic center of Salò passes the main road Gardesana West. The most trained cyclists use it to reach Limone sul Garda and Riva del Garda, but there are many intermediate destinations of interest that can be chosen to construct short-distance routes on the western coast. Close to the border between Salò and San Felice del Benaco is the short road “delle Zette”. The four curves that characterize this road allow you to easily overcome the small difference in altitude that separates the Monte Santa Caterina from the southern part of the gulf, where you can admire great and splendid views. A circular route of just over ten kilometres is possible starting from the Rive di Salò (0.0 km) where, among other things, you can enjoy one of Salò's small, breezy and relaxing free beaches. Cycle alongside the lake past the cypress-lined avenue of the monumental cemetery to the short climb that leads to Cisano, a small cluster of houses overlooking the bay of Salò, and from here you reach Portese and then San Felice del Benaco (5.1 km).
Continuing in the direction of the area Cunettone of Salò you come to the roundabout and exit to the right towards the 'delle Zette' descent, which leads pleasantly between wide views in the eastern part of the Gulf and from there at the left to the starting point.
