BICYCLE TOUR: EUROTOUR 2008

FLAVIO BASSI'S ON-BOARD DIARY

DAY 1

DATE: 04:08:2008
START: PESCHIERA DEL GARDA
FINISH: TRENTO
LENGTH: 83 KM
DIFFICULTY GRADE: A1
...Is the good day announced by the morning?
The first day starts early. Sunrise is fresh: a nice waking up. Rendez-vous at Peschiera Railway Station, crowded by tourists travelling everywhere, and GO!
After around 20 kilometers me and Matteo proceed too close, a contact probably between the bags and... CRASH! His bike and its pilot are on the ground.
Fortunately, no consequence. And that road was a terrible way full of trucks... mmmmhhh... it seems advisable to catch the train to reach Ala, where Adige Cycle Path starts.
From Ala to Trento is like flying. Adige Cycle Path is really perfect; very nice the stop at the Bicigrill in Nomi. Unfortunately it is actually the only one real long distance cycle path in Italy.
Easily we arrive in Trento and find the central hostel for night accomodation.
