Venosta Valley is long and varied and therefore ideal for exploring by bicycle. The tours along the bottom of the valley are optimal for moderate cyclists and families. More ambitious cyclists can find challenging destinations for race cycling and mountain biking on the pass-roads and at the mountainsides.
The 80km long "Etschradweg" cycling trail along the old Roman road Via Claudia Augusta
is particularly popular among moderate cyclists. The way runs from Lake Resia in the North to the spa town of Meran/Merano. It runs through Burgusio/Burgeis with a view of the Monte Maria Abbey, through Malles/Mals with its seven Romanesque churches, through the medieval town of Glorenza/Glurns and also past the ancient St. Proculus church in Naturno/Naturns with its pre-Carolingian frescos.
During spring and summer you can take advantage of the ticket BikemobilCard
for train rides and bicycle rentals. The Venosta Valley railway offers bicycle rentals at seven train station along the route. The BikemobilCard allows you to use all public transportation in South Tyrol and a rental bike. For more information visit: www.suedtirolbike.com
