Information for route planning
The best place to start is the Südtirol tourist authorities websites. Südtirol Rad is the German version, Bici Alto Adige Bici Alto Adige is the Italian version and Suedtirol Bike is the English version. There are 23 routes covering all the major cycle routes in the region - each with a Google map, altitude profile and gps file.
The site includes a number of routes that would be of interest to cycle tourers, including:
- Bruneck (Brunico) - Jesolo (near Venezia) via Toblach (Dobbiaco), Cortina d'Ampezzo and Treviso;
- Reschen - Riva del Garda via Meran, Bolzano (Bozen) and Trento;
- Innichen - Lienz in Austria along the Drauradweg.
suedtiroler-weinstrasse.it is another of the Süd Tirol sites includes information about wine tours ('Wine and Bike: In Pursuit of the Vine') - some cantine will even deliver wine you buy to your hotel (admittedly not much help to touring cyclists).
Information on individual cycleways
Brennero cycleway (Ciclopista del sole)
Via Claudia Augusta (Vinschgau Radweg/Etschradweg//ciclabile del Val Venosta)
Probably the best sources of information are the main Süd Tirol cycling websites and the Via Claudia Augusta site. However there is some information on the local area sites: Cycling in Val Venosta and bikemeran.it German only.
Pustertal (Val Pusteria)
