Cycleways

There’s a good overview of Trentino’s 300kms of cycle paths (piste ciclabili) on the visittrentino.it website. This section of the website includes pages with brief descrip­tions of the main routes together with photos and maps.

For more detailed inform­ation including downloadable maps and gpx files head over to the Piste ciclabili section of the provincia’s website. The English-language pages don’t seem to work - so the best bet is to use the Italian-language section in particular the Mappe page.

Update: the provincia have posted gpx files for all of the cycleways on this page.

Ciclabile Valle dell’Adige (Ciclopista del Sole)

The Provincia Autonoma di Trento has a page in Italian with map and gps downloads plus a useful photogallery.
