Begin at the Lana Tourist Information Office in Andreas Hofer Strasse and ride to Tribusplatz square. There turn left to Falschauer bridge. Follow the signposts to Merano (right) and cross the bridge over the MEBO expressway. Drive on the transregional cycle path towards Merano. In Sinigo follow the signposts for the Vinschgau Valley. After passing the racecourse in Merano turn right. Continue to follow the signs for Vinschgau. (Note: within Merano, the signage is green).

Ride along the right hand bank of the river Etsch to Lagundo. The climb to Tel begins at the swimming baths. At the start and end of the climb there are places to stop for a rest and a drink of water. At the end of the climb you will also be rewarded by a wonderful view. Continue to ride to Tel and cross the main road there, turn right and follow the cycle path to Naturno past the public playground.

Here cross the river and ride along the left bank after approx. 2 km to the Erlebnisbahnhof (adventure railway station) which is reached via the underpass. (Note: the adventure station is only open on Sundays from 2-6 pm from May to the end of October). The return journey is along the same route as far as Sinigo; from there continue towards Bolzano. Just after the exit for Lana, there is a restored locomotive to the right of the rest point that is well worth seeing. Your ride can be concluded with a visit to Lana open air pool.

Sights along the route: dam on the Tel, Prokulus Church in Naturno, Rablà railway museum.
