From the top of Valsugana down to the valley of Adige

Cycling day 11/85 km ~ From Roncegno to Loppio

After having enjoyed the great breakfast which was included in the room of the Agriturismo Montibeller I left the small town and continued to cycle in the valley of Valsugana which I already knew from my trip two years ago.

Having fantastic weather it was great to follow the Via Julia Augusta. I thought I just would have to cycle downhill to Trento – but that was completely wrong as you’ve had to go uphill as the valley was very near.

I’ve also cycled along the Lago di Caldonazzo which was outstanding.

Finally I came down to Trento where I had lunch in the central park. There I had the idea to come back one day and attend an language school – would be great to study in the country of the language you want to learn.

Cycling along the wide valley of Adige was a little bit boring – and very hot. But of course better than rain 😀

I’ve tried to have a look to the ancient town of Rovereto but the traffic was so dangerous that I decided to continue my ride to the campingsite in Loppio – which has a pool and a coffee machine 😁

Exploring (again) Valsugana and the river Brenta

Cycling day 10/73 km ~ From Bassano del Grappa to Roncegno Terme

So staying at the paragliders campingsite was great as I had a chat in the morning with the guys from the evening before – but now I’m sure I do not want to learn paragliding 😁

The sun was shining, the tent was dry after a horrible night and so I continued my journey. Of course I had a look to the ancient town of Bassano del Grappa...

And coincidentally I found the oldest bakery in town and bought a really good tasting bread freshly made.

Leaving Bassano del Grappa you have to cross the famous bridge – unfortunately it’s under construction…like two years ago on my way to Rome it was outstanding to visit it.

Entering the valley of the river Brenta you experience an outstanding beauty of nature…and against the weatherforecast the sun was shining…

But – as the routine teached me already – after the sun comes some rain…after midday having had my lunch it started again to rain for a short while but this day I wasn’t as good in form like the other days.

So I’ve decided to take a room instead of a night in the tent and did so on the Agriturismo – they’ve got both and everything as perfect maintained.
