Mountain Biking on Lake Garda

The perfect day on two wheels

With more than 1,000 kilometres of marked trails, for all levels from beginners to experts, Lake Garda is a true paradise for mountain bike lovers. Here, you can go on exciting rides surrounded by fabulous nature without working too hard, or you can train seriously, on demanding and very tough itineraries. Therefore, there are many good reasons to spend a mountain biking holiday on Lake Garda. Today, we’ll tell you all about the perfect day on a mountain bike, on the shores of this beautiful cobalt blue lake. We are sure that, once you get to the bottom of the article, you’ll be ready to jump on your saddle to experience the mountain biking trails of Garda Trentino!

Mountain Biking on Lake Garda – let’s start with Energy Breakfast!

Those who want to spend their day on a mountain bike, cycling along the thrilling paths that surround Lake Garda, must have plenty of energy. For this reason, here at Residence Centro Vela, a mountain biker’s perfect day starts with a rich breakfast, providing all the necessary nutrients for the ride. In addition to being nutritious, the meal should also be tasty, to start your day with a smile: this is why our breakfast buffet is so varied and delicious! You will be spoiled for choice, starting from typical breakfast favourites (like coffee, cappuccino, cakes and croissants), and all the elements of a continental breakfast, including bread, jams, yogurt, eggs, meats, cheeses and so on. Everything we serve in our breakfast room with lake view is organic, with many locally sourced products. It’s important to fill up with the necessary calories, carbohydrates and proteins, and remember to hydrate as much as possible.

Before taking off: don’t forget to check your mountain bike!

After a hearty breakfast, before setting off to discover the mountain bike trails around Lake Garda, it’s good to perform a proper check of your mountain bike: better safe than sorry! Don’t forget to double-check your handlebar, gearbox, spokes, brakes, and, of course, tire pressure. At the Residence Centro Vela you can count on a comfortable room for all the small repairs you might need, with a toolbox and technical keys available on request. When you get back, you can also take advantage of a dedicated area to clean your mountain bike, to wash away dust and mud.

Renting mountain bikes and e-bikes

Would you like to discover the most beautiful mountain bike itineraries on Lake Garda, but you don’t have your mountain bike with you? There is no problem! In fact, it is possible to rent mountain bikes for all levels, and very comfortable e-bikes for those who need that extra ‘push’, ready to face even the most technical paths! Guests of the Residence Centro Vela can rent bicycles at a discounted price, thanks to a special agreement.

On mountain bike tour with a guide

Would you like to discover the best places around out lake? A great way to do so is a guided tour! Our Residence has an agreement with a certified mountain biking guide, so we can always guarantee the best prices. You can choose between mountain bike tours for the entire family, cross-country, free ride or enduro tours, according to your wishes. In all cases, a local, expert guide will accompany you, and you’ll have a great day on the trails without any worries.

The most famous mountain bike itineraries

Garda Trentino offers endless mountain bike itineraries. Every day, a new adventure awaits you! You can opt for the Giro delle Marocche, long but not difficult, discovering the northern part of the Sarca valley. Another path leads to Malga Grassi – this is of medium difficulty, crossing chestnut and beech woods, eventually reaching the village of Pranzo and then the malga that gives the route its name. Another one of the most popular mountain bike tours in the Garda area is the legendary road to Tremalzo, which offers a dream view of Lake Garda. Then again, there is the ‘historical’ itinerary to the famous Passo Nota, passing through the old military roads of the ravine. These are just some of the many mountain bike trails that await you around Lake Garda. Don’t worry, we will provide you with a detailed mountain bike map, so that you can easily find your way through the many itineraries in the area.

Once you get back in, your mountain bike will be safe in our dedicated lockable storage. Or, if you prefer, you can take your bike to your apartment!
