As challenging as our day ended yesterday, as challenging starts our rest day's ride to the Lake Garda.
The "Kaiserjägersteig" is a very short one, but it ranks among the most challenging roads to ride.
The name "Kaiserjägersteig" is derived from the Austrian soldiers, the "Kaiserjäger", whose task was to protect the borders of the Austrian-Hungarian kingdom. In the 1870s they created a foot path up the mountain to guarantee the supply of ammunition. Today, of course, the road has been turned in an asphalted road.
On our ride to Lake Garda, we pass by the great Castel Beseno.
We are in Italy - so, of course, it had to be a typical Italian cappuccino. For some, though, it had to be a chocolata calda.
The area around Trento and around the Lake Garda is known for its large vineyards.
Arriving at Lake Garda.
Why the "shudder terrace" has this name? Well, you don't need to think much about this. A look will tell.
