Granfondo "Lake Garda Tour"






My friends in Verona are preparing to enter this very nice granfondo on March 15th. The granfondo distance is 155km on a route that takes you counter clockwise around the entire perimeter of Lake Garda. Really fantastic. The mediofondo of 94 km is interesting in that you take a ferry from Bardolino across to the west side of Lake Garda where the start line is; the mediofondo gets underway once the leaders of the granfondo pass.
