Safety information

Ride your bike carefully when approaching the few cross-roads you find along the cycle path.

Pay attention when overriding other bikers.

Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.

Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.

Always wear your helmet.Make sure your front and rear lights are working.

Put out your arm to give advance warning of your intention to change position and before you do anything, check there are no vehicles coming up behind you.

Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!

Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file.

You've got a bell: use it to let pedestrians know you're there.

Don't ride on footpaths. If you have to then get off and push your bike.

If there are cycle paths use them. It's your safety that's at stake and the rules of the road say you must.

 

Note:

The cycle pathe in Trentino are usually closed by the local authorities from November, 15th to April, 15th.

Turn-by-turn directions

This unique cycle way goes in parallel to River Brenta for long stretches. There are no particularly difficult steep stretches, thus the path is ideal for all kinds of bikers, and it also offers various resting areas, the Bicigrill of Levico and Tezze di Grigno, and many ice cream shops in the different villages which the path crosses.The cycle path touches indeed many villages, even Borgo, which offers many services and an info point. The cycle path furher reaches many other villages, which are a short ride away from the cycle path itself, always along River Brenta. In Pianello Vallon the cycle path enters the province of Vicenza and leaves Trentino. From here you continue to cycle along River Brenta, over various suspended bridges which mark the most narrow stretch of Valsugana. You then reach Ristorante Cornale, which serves as Bicigrill, and then till Bassano, along a secondary road, through numerous, pictoresque villages, as Valstagna, Oliero, Campolongo sul Brenta, Campese and Sant'Eusebio. You need to pay special attention along this stretch, because it is open to normal vehicles as well.

Public transport

You can easily reach the Valsugana cycle path from the various railway and bus stations, or with your car, or by bike, riding towarda the River Brenta, because the cycle path follows the river direction, partially on the right side, and partially on the left river bank.

You can park at each railway station, or in the various villages you find along the cycle path, like Pergine, Calceranica, Caldonazzo, Marter di Roncegno, Borgo Valsugana, Castelnuovo, Castel Ivano, Tezze, etc.
