Delta del Po Ride

The first week in September, 2006, the club did a ride in the Po Delta in the vicinity of Porto Tolle, Goro, and smaller villages. On a map you will find it south of Chioggia (which is at the southern edge of the Venetian lagoon).

It was incredibly beautiful. The Adriatic was shimmering, the marshlands dramatic, a sea of peace and tranquility. I felt I had been transported to another planet. It was one of my favorite rides of 2006.

Cycling is a great way to see Italy!

Photos: scenes from the ride, including a bridge built on boats and fishing shacks.


  1. What a gorgeous ride! Is there a good place to rent bikes around there that you'd recommend?

  2. Sorry, I do not (we took our own bikes).
