Part One: From Bavaria to Bologne

Wow – in a weeks time I´ll be sitting in a small B&B in Kiefersfelden next to the Austrian border…

This year I´m going to explore a new country by bike – Italy. I´ve been there several times -as a child in Lido di Jesolo, with my first car in Toscany around Florence, with friends to the Lago di Garda – but never by bicycle…

As I´ve started my planings around November I´ve been always thinking I could take the alps via Fern- and Reschenpass as there are two shuttle options for cyclists.
But – there are also some hills to climb – and this is not the best option with a recumbent and a trailer having around 35 kg…

So some days ago I´ve decided with the help of a good friend to make a complete new plan and booked new B&Bs or youth hostels along the new track – crossing the alps via Brennero.

Rolling down to Bolzano I´m going to use the Etschtal cycle path – wich is also the Via Claudia Augusta – to Trento.
Here I will climb (or use the train) to the Lago di Caldonazzo and find my way down to Mestre along the beautiful cycle path Valsungana. So I´d like to visit Venice.

Now back westwards Í´d like to see Verona where I haven´t been for a long time.
After having visited Ferrara this first Part will end in Bologne.
