Destination

Ponte Arche - Terme di Comano

Turn-by-turn directions

Ponte Arche – Police Station– pedestrian bridge – Bono – Gallio – Santa Croce – Duvredo – Bivedo – Larido – Marazzone – Cavaione – Rango – Balbido – Santa Giustina – Madice – Casa Madonna della Neve (Gallio) – Bono – San Felice – Sesto – San Nicolo – descent to the main street – restaurant Il Picchio – Ponte Arche

The tour starts at the car park in the centre of Ponte Arche (opposite to bar Al Pont, on the main road); go south towards the spring. From the main road [1], turn left and then right at the Police station. Leave the building on the left and follow the road which will become a cycling path soon. After approx. 1 km you will pass by a new pedestrian bridge which crosses the Duina torrent, here the forest road becomes steeper. After 500 m the recently built track becomes less steep and you reach Bono [2]. At the crossing (2.7 km, 523 m) turn left, cross the village and climb the minor tarmaced road to Gallio [3 – 3.8 km, 600 m]. Turn right in the direction of S. Croce [4]. When you arrive on the main road (4.3 km),  turn left and after 100 m take the first possible turn on the right dir. Duvredo and Castel Restor. In Duvredo, take the first possible turn [5] left uphill, after 100 m turn left again at the T-shaped crossing. This time the agricultural road becomes steeper. Keep cycling straight ahead to Bivedo [6]. Pass by the church and follow the hairpin bend to Larido [7]. Still on the main road, leave the village behind and cycle to Marazzone. Cross again the road [8] leading to the Duron Pass and go on in the direction of Cavaione [9] and Rango [10] which you will pass. In an easy descent you will get to Balbido. At the first slight bend to the left [11], abandon the main road and begin to climb on the right hand side (9.1 km 776). After 150 m keep left and cycle downhill to the church of Santa Giustina [12 – 9.7 km, 741 m]. Immediately on the right hand side, behind the church, there is a demanding and steep single track that goes through the forest down to the valley. There are some tight bends where you might prefer to walk! After joining up with the valley road at a factory [13 – 10.2 km, 655m], turn left and cycle out of the valley. On the main road [14] (near the bridge which crosses the river), turn left and climb up the road for 300 m. Now follow the tarmaced farm road on the right. After 100 m turn left. After 900 m, at the crossing with the wayside shrine [15], turn left and then immediately right. Cycle 140 m under apple trees, turn left and 300 m farther to the right. You will reach again the tarmaced farm track [16 – 12.8 km, 625 m] which takes you to Madice [17 – 13.2 km, 633 m]. At this point turn right, then left dir S. Croce and Gallio. At the crossing [18] between S. Croce und Gallio turn right and then left. The gravelled trail becomes a bit rough and will soon take you to Bono. Follow the road traversing the village on the left (dir Comighello) for 200 m only [19], then ascend towards Sesto leaving behind the S. Felice church. Turn right at the farm [20]. Near Sesto you will pass on the main road [21] and cycle straight ahead to Bié [22]. Now you turn right to S. Nicolo church [23] and at the crossing turn left descending easily. The road ends near the large greenhouses of a garden centre [24]. Keep on cycling on the right side, but in a moment you will have to turn left (17.5 km, 507 m). The gravelled foot path heads to the forest and leads you to a wider forest road after 250 m [25]. Follow this road down to the valley. After having enjoyed a steep descent on a gravelled track you will hit the county road near the industrial zone and restaurant “Bel Sit”. To return back to the starting point turn right.
