Lake Garda tour (clockwise) by Patrick

Did this twice last week while on holiday starting and finishing in Malcesine. It’s a fast route apart from the ascent from Gargnano to the first tunnel. Biggest killer was the head wind in the afternoon when going from riva del Garda back to malcesine. Starting earlier is better as the traffic in Garda got very busy the second time I went round
