Getting out of cold central Europe is a must once April hits. One of the most popular spots for German and Austrian cyclists during early Spring is Gardasee (Lago di Garda in Italian). I guess since I am technically an Austrian cyclsist now - I had to give it a go and see what it was all about.
With countless long climbs and picturesque scenery at every head turn - it always delivers. Spot on. I can't say enough. It is about the best place to go with a bike on the planet.
Yeah...sometimes the main lake road get's to be a pain in the ass to ride on, but once you get off of it. Jesus. Christ. It's amazing.
I hit it up with my Bae Brigitte. We rode together some and I also did a handful of solo rides. Our favorite was the via Forra just south of Limone - absolutely freakin' stunning.
