The biking adventure begins in the town of Tenno, a commune settled among mountains near a famous glacial lake. Cycle around Lake Tenno and see this bright turquoise water with your own eyes. Continue to Pranzo, another tiny peaceful village established among the giant Dolomites.
Keep those legs peddling as you head north towards the town of Ballino, where you tackle the 15km (9 mi) Passo del Ballino. Tackle this route of considerable uphill sections and make it to the Limaryo Canyon. Over years of erosion, the Sarca River has carved out a maze of rock formations.

About 3/4 into the journey, you stop at Cantina Pisoni for a wine tasting and lunch of Italian specialties like including local meats and cheeses. Kick back with a glass in hand and admire the Dolomites around you. Head back to the starting point with a belly full of wine, food, and happiness.
When you dismount your bike, you feel well acquainted with Italy’s countryside. You feel you accomplished a long trek. And you definitely feel those long uphill sections.
