Lake Garda, Italy
This year there is a brand new way to get around Italy’s largest lake. Garda By Bike is a newly constructed track and lets you cycle an impressive 140km around the lake and northern Italy. It will take you from Lombardy, then through Trento and on to the Veneto and back. It’s a spectacular way to discover this gorgeous country. Though, depending on how far you want to cycle, it’s best to do some training before attempting the trial.
