Oratorio della Madonna di Fatima - Giova (GR)
Wonderful bike tour starting in Roveredo. After a short flat stretch you climb through a magnificent forest in the direction of Giova. The departures towards Buseno and then from Castaneda to Grono are exhausting, but with a wonderful panorama.

Details

Description

The tour starts in the piazza of Roveredo. From there you drive on the east side of the Moesa in the direction of Bellinzona. At the height of S.Vittore you change the valley side. The steep and winding road to Giova and the Monti di San Carlo leads through a magnificent forest. In Giova, the futuristic chapel of the Madonna di Fatima is worth a visit. At the Monti di S.Carlo, the challenging descent towards the Reservoir of Buseno begins. On a natural road you can reach Castaneda without much effort. The last descent ends over 400 m deeper in Grono, where you cross the Moesa again. Along the river you return to Roveredo and end the day in the piazza.
