Lake Iseo is an excellent starting point for a travel to go discovering the Prealps and valleys of Bergamo by bicycle.
From Riva di Solto, on the Bergamo shore of the lake, you travel for about 190 km a cycle path, mixed secondary roads with low-traffic and old communication channels, natural balconies on deep, enchanting gorges. The length of the journey requires at least two days, if you want to fully enjoy what surrounds you, I suggest that you give three full days to this itinerary in the valleys of Bergamo. 
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.
How does it feel like to travel 3,200 km by bicycle through the Andes starting from Nazca, the town made famous by the lines traced on the ground in pre-Inca times, and reaching Salta, also known with the nickname “la Linda” (the beautiful)?
It feels like the sweet taste of a steaming coca mate at 4,000 meters, it feels like the intense flavor of the dirty, sandy and stony roads of Bolivia, it feels like the harsh taste of the traits of the Andean campesinos, ageless and with sunburned skin, it feels like a taste that leaves you breathless, like the climbs to reach the plateau and the passes that almost arrive at an altitude of 5,000 meters.
1200 km of asphalt between the highest mountains of the world, the Karakoram Highway is one of the most dreamed by travelers... on foot, by bicycle, by motorcycle, hitchhiking! From Pakistan to China, we'll try to travel on Karakoram Highway, which, since 1978, when it was finished, tells the story of hundreds of workers who lost their lives during the construction and the story of countless travelers that walked, and still walk along it in all seasons and by any transport.
