Biker-Brettl - The Cyclist’s Snack
Great news for all cycling enthusiasts! The area around Castelbello - Ciardes, with new and exciting trails to explore, is attracting growing numbers of bike enthusiasts. So it was inevitable that some local restaurants and mountain taverns would come up with ways to cater to their needs. The idea of a "Cyclist’s Snack" was born, which include hot and cold dishes, made exclusively with local, seasonal ingredients.
Only in Castelbello-Ciardes, Naturno and Parcines.

Based on the "Cyclist’s Snack”, mouth-watering light meals made from freshly picked local ingredients. These snacks were especially created with the cyclist in mind, providing the right amount of energy for replenishment before continuing on their ride. Meals are served from 12.00 – 4.00pm at the participating restaurants and mountain inns.
A few essential cycle services were also thrown in, such as secure parking racks, tools and spares for light maintenance work, an info service and recharging stations for electric bikes. This cyclist’s package is exclusive to the area around Castelbello-Ciardes, Naturno and Parcines.
