The route follows the Via Claudia Augusta bike path, flat until Bolzano, and then goes slightly up until the Brenner Pass. From the pass, it goes fast down to Innsbruck following the main road. Right a few kilometres before Innsbruck, it heads west, it skips the city and enters in the Inn Valley. The valley is beautiful and wild, with some section of gravel road (really well paved), until Landeck. From the village the route goes up again to Resta, always on bike path, and once the pass is reached, it goes fast down to Bolzano. Then, a beautiful detour to Lake Caldaro, a few kilometres along the “Wine Road” until Salorno and the last 6 kilometres on the river Adige bike path until the Bicigrill Bike Break in Faedo.
