Visit to Brenzone

From Bardolino to Torre del Bennaco the road running along the east coast of Lake Garda at times hugs the lakefront. North of Torre the road is always immediately next to the lake so you always have wonderful vistas. Monte Baldo, on the right, blocks the sun until mid-morning so it can be chilly. Being off-season the roads are tranquil, later they become more chaotic. This view is to the north on the way to Brenzone which is basking in the sun in the distance.
The village of Brenzone has a very small harbor, and is dominated by Monte Baldo.
This was an out and back big chainring training ride only stopping for a few photos. I'm getting ready for the Garda granfondo of March 9th, or as they say, "fake it until you make it"....that's me. The lakeside road is generally flat but there are a number of roads, with varying degrees of pitch and length, that you can take from the lake up to Monte Baldo and its ridges to get in some hard climbing.
