Cycling routes for families
This area offers not only routes for experts, but also cycle paths suitable for everyone, including families with children who want to have fun along the way.
- Discovering the Valle del Chiese. From Ponte Caffaro, heading north along the River Chiese is a beautiful cycle path that continues towards Storo and further into the valley. A route to discover the nature of the Valle del Chiese, ideal for families with children. The route to Storo has a considerable altitude difference up to Lake Roncone, so be aware of that. But cycle as far as you can, the route is breathtaking.
- Up and down the Valle Sabbia. Did you know that there is a cycle path connecting the Valle Sabbia to Lake Garda and the city of Brescia? It is called the Greenway and the section between Vestone and Barghe is very evocative thanks to the pedestrian bridge suspended over the River Chiese, from where you can admire the fortress of Nozza and its village. Only a short stretch in the municipality of Barghe remains to be connected, here one is forced to pass the national road, now with little traffic, in the town of San Gottardo. Passing through the centre of Sabbio Chiese to continue to Vobarno via the old tramway, at Roè Volciano you can decide whether to continue towards Brescia, along the river Chiese, or to descend towards Salò and continue towards Valtenesi.
