This bike trip in Italy is considered easy to moderate. It is not very demanding since it takes place on mainly flat roads however the total vertical distance is 830/1040 m. The South Tyrol region offers an excellent bike friendly system. You can ride almost exclusively on well maintained, asphalted bike paths, part of which run along the Adige River banks. Towards Lake Garda, there is a more challenging climb to face. Every cycling day (with the exception of day 7) can be shortened by taking a train.
