October 11, 2019 – The Brenta River Valley

The weather couldn’t have been better as we set out on our ride to Caldonazzo through the Brenta River Valley. The Brenta flows 108 miles to the Adriatic Sea just south of the Venetian Lagoon from its Lake Caldonazzo and Lake Levico headwaters.

It was a three-bicigrill day and we took advantage of each one to stop for a short break.

A large log serves as a creative bike rack.

And a bike serves as a creative table support.

Bicigrills–what a great concept!

We left the Veneto Region today and re-entered the Trentino as we make our way north back to Trento and then Bolzano.

Entering the secret passageway to Borgo.

Add strawberries to the crops this region supports. They look like they’re just about ready to be harvested.

A few colorfully decorated bikes we saw along the way.

The mountains rising up on both sides of the valley aren’t as dramatic as the Dolomites but are impressive nonetheless.

Tomorrow, on to Trento.
