VIDEO: Italy's New Lake Garda Bike Path is Breathtaking
One of the most popular cycling landscapes in Italy, Lake Garda, is being made even more cycle-friendly with the construction of a 87 mile “floating” path which will allow cyclists to ride the entire way around the lake
By the time it is completed, the Ciclabile di Limone sul Garda will cover 87 miles and accommodate all levels of cycling proficiency.
Where the way gets more challenging, alternative transport options will be in place, meaning that if you can’t face a long slog up a mountain slope, you can hop on a boat instead. Some would call this cheating. Others would call it sensible.
Aside from attracting cycling enthusiasts to the area, it is also hoped that the path will connect more remote villages around the lake, making them more accessible and opening them up to tourism.
Not only will it encourage visitors to the famous lake to venture to hotels and restaurants that are currently more difficult to access, if tourist numbers become more dispersed, it could afford a plethora of new possibilities for the local community.
The whole project will cost up to €102 million and is anticipated to be completed by 2021.
