Garda Trentino, the El Dorado of cycling

While more than 200 exhibitors and 350 brands present new bike models, equipment and accessories, the large festival area on the shores of Lake Garda and the surrounding mountain trails offer ideal conditions for discovering and testing the latest innovations. Thousands of cyclists can't wait to explore the routes of the Garda Trentino mountains, with over 50 cycle paths and 1.500 kilometers of paths accessible to bikers. All seasoned with Rocks On Fire, the common thread that unites those who experience the FSA Bike Festival Riva del Garda as protagonists.

Expo, Competitions, Parties – The program in brief

In addition to the extraordinary scenery that combines the strength of the mountains with the vastness of the lake, the festival offers a rich program with guided tours, workshops and different competition formats: from the Specialized Bike Marathon to the Maxxis Gravel Garda Trentino, from the Bosch e-MTB Challenge to the Scott Junior Trophy for cyclists aged between 4 and 14 years. The highlight of the festival is undoubtedly the marathon test on Saturday 4 May on the UCI calendar: around 1.500 bikers will compete on one of the three tracks of 30, 59 and 82 kilometres.

Furthermore, various routes specifically designed for tests and trials of the bicycles on display are available to visitors as well as various "experiences" from protagonists such as the Enduro Experiences (with organized groups accompanied by qualified guides) and the e-MTB Adventure Experiences where participants will be able to have uninterrupted fun thanks to the battery changing stations set up on the routes of the longer itineraries. And again: acrobatic shows, ride-outs and the Open Night, which will be followed by a party at Spiaggia degli Olivi. In short, a busy agenda during the day and in the evening.

The exhibition area of ​​the Bike Festival Riva del Garda can be visited completely free of charge, registration is already open on the Visitor Entrance page.
