Get slower and discover the taste of Comano ValleSalus riding your bike. Along Kilometrozero Unesco Bike tour you will taste the gastronomic jewels of our valley. Start climbing towards the first taste: San Lorenzo in Banale, at the foot of the Dolomites, is the birthplace of a Slow food salami made with turnips: Ciuiga. After this first break go down till the Limarò canyon and through the wheat fields reach the Lomaso plateau, the realm of the mountain potato. It's time for another taste-break: give yourself the pleasure to try a board of violet potatoes and mountain cheese.

2 Leave No Trace Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Don't cut switchbacks. Be sure to pack out at least as much as you pack in.
3 Control Your Bicycle Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all bicycle speed regulations and recommendations, and ride within your limits.
4 Yield Appropriately Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to ones headed uphill, unless the trail is clearly signed for one-way or downhill-only traffic. In general, strive to make each pass a safe and courteous one.
5 Never Scare Animals Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you. When passing horses, use special care and follow directions from the horseback riders (ask if uncertain). Running cattle and disturbing wildlife are serious offenses.
6 Plan Ahead Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Strive to be self-sufficient: keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.
