Born in 1983 (they told me that many crazy girls were born that year...), I lived in beautiful Trentino for some years and luck (or bad luck) let me know Leo with which I now live and write on lifeintravel.it and bicycletouring.bike
After changing thousands jobs (custard, travel agent, seller of toilets, employed in a call center, bartender... cubist ehm, no, this not yet!) i have traveled twice to Mexico, I dropped everything without any regret to fly to New Zealand where I loitered for five months.
In 2010 with Leo I left home once again for a long bike trip in Southeast Asia. Now, between a mountain excursion and an adventure, i dream and re-dream the Panamerican highway on two wheels!!!
Every time we plan a bicycle tour, before packing the bike and fill the bags there is a time frame in which we think of everything that we must do before leaving. The steps seem to be too many and sometimes we believe of being overwhelmed. But after all the only thing that goes really made it a great breath with which to relax and concentrate on what is really needed. Ok, you made your breath? Perfect! we can now go and think about what you will actually do for starting serene and enjoy the ride! Yes, I know, I started writing diecendo that we will then leave, but we assume that you are about to do so.
Lake Iseo, also known as Sebino, is one of the Lombardy basins. Divided between the province of Bergamo and that of Brescia, it is still unknown to mass tourism and this is also the reason why is excellently appropriate for practicing cycle-tourism. The tour of Lake Iseo can start by any villages on its banks, but for convenience we will start it from Riva di Solto, on the Bergamo bank, where you can park your car and enjoy an ice-cream on your way back to celebrate the venture.
The tour of Lake Iseo runs through the whole circumnavigation of the Lombardy lake in 66 km of cycle paths and mixed secondary roads that during sunny weekends and high tourist season can be averagely busy.
The evolution of transports, the revolution of rubber and the resulting abandon of the railway lines, over the years has led to a transformation: some abandoned railways have been rehabilitated becoming paths for pedestrians and cyclists. Also in Italy this small change has had important results in the development and diffusion of cycling tourism: where there is a secure path for bicycles the curious and the travelers arrive and induced tourism grows... 
The choice of bike for exploring the surrounding areas of Venice gives us the opportunity to really get to know its magic, its unique landscapes and the Venetian hospitality, offering a very wide range of itineraries, tours and accommodation. Here is what we believe is one of the most striking.
