Across the Mendelpass
If only all the mountain passes were as simple as the Mendelpass! Calm incline, wide roads and a dramatic finale with narrow passages through the rock formations just before the highest point. On the other hand, it takes a while to get decently high and eventually get to the side of the lake Kalterer See. Your legs, though, will be thankful for the easy way uphill.

The start of this tour is in Eppan. You follow the bike path in the direction of Kaltern and then you turn right into the SS42 in the direction of (1) the Mendelpass. The flat, 15 km long incline brings you onto the pass (2) which serves as the border between the regions of South Tyrol and the Trentino. What follows is a long passage where you just roll downhill. In (3) Ronzone you turn left to Mezzocorona/Trento onto the SS43  DIR, from Dermulo (4) on the SS43. At the junction to Denno (5) you keep driving downhill (SP73). Pass through Mezzolombardo (6), turn left and after the bridge (7) drive straight. In Mezzocorona you go in the direction of the train station (8). Turn left onto the road IX.-November-Straße. At the roundabout you drive into the (9) Via Romana (SP90) and at the exit of the village (10) you turn left to Maso Nuovo, Roverè della Luna. In Aichholz (11) you leave the SP90 and via the stations road you get to the river Etsch and to the bike path next to it (12). After
