The most spectacular cycle path in Europe

October 24, 2017 | Category: Mountainbike

Hello everybody, 

We have a very nice surprise for you. Next season there will be a really beautiful cycle path suspended from the rock surrounding the Lake with amazing and unrivaled panoramic views, the most spectacular in Europe.

This is very special because you are not next to a main street so it is very safe, peaceful and you can really enjoy the perspective and take unique pictures. There are no motors, only E-bikes, bikes, mountain bikes and  you can go also walking to enjoy all the details of the environment

So if you’re with anyone who wants to go kitesurfing but you don’t, you can go walking to there and look to the kite session from this beautiful spot or….. You can rent an E-bike with us. Next season we’re going to start a bicycle rental with E-bikes, so you can go on an E-bike from us to explore the whole Garda Lake.

From this cycle path you can admire the watersports; sailing, windsurf and specially kitesurf. So if you’re a girlfriend, wife or just a friend and you don’t believe that your partner is riding on the board 🙂 just walk to there and be the spectator of the kite session. Close to the Trentino line there is the best wind of Lake Garda in the morning, with the peler, but also in the afternoon with the Ora. You can take some nice videos and pictures.

They started in Limone with building the cycle path.

This part leads from Capo Reamol in Limone sul Garda, on the western side of Lake Garda, to the Trentino’s border, towards Riva del Garda, on the north side. It’s almost 2 km long and offers many cyclists breathtaking surrounding scenery. This cycle path should be completed in April 2018. The other part from the cycle path is completed in 2021 and in total it will be 190 km long and also involves 3 regions; Lombardy, Trentino, Veneto.

Before and After

 

Every time we’re on the water for the kite session we can see them building the new cycle path. We also see a helicopter working on it. They have build lanterns on the whole path, so it’s very beautiful in the night.

The project, which has cost 7.6 million (!!) euros, will definitely be an attraction for people who love to cycle and already arrive on the shore of the lake and dream of a beautiful route around Lake Garda.

The cycle path become real

We’re looking forward ride the bicycle with you along this beautiful new path, but of course also to do kitesurf with you!

A magic place that offers also many activities as mountain bike, canyoning, climbing, hiking & paragliding.

When we arrived here we have been warmly welcomed, with prosecco at the station, from Robbie, Monica and Team Wind Riders. and the same evening we discovered that in Limone there was the yellow night, a special event  that is only once a year with music and fireworks . We went by boat with also some guest to watch fireworks from the water, it was a very special and above all a beautiful experience.

The first day of our internship at the beach:

We started early morning in our new Wind Riders clothes. All looking the same color, very nice and fashion, and of course with our smiling, to welcome all the clients of different nationality. Specially from German, Austrian , Swiss but also English…and Dutch :).  

We had sun and 30 degree so a lot of people ask to rent stand up paddle board. 

We were  assistant when the the boats came back from the  kite sessions  and take care about the organisation, the stuff, and the equipment: kite, boards,  wetsuits, harness and radiohelmet… 

but we went also to do our first kite surf experience. Even if it was the first time for us, the kite was fly in the amazing area between beautiful mountain. We finish with  wakeboarding , after a few mistakes everyone could stand on the board and riding.
