Planning on a family holiday in late May and have persuaded the other half that a week in Lake Garda would be good, based mainly on some bike articles I've read.
So, hoping some people with experience of the area can help me out with some of the details. The trip will mainly be a family one, and our first with the little chap. He'll only be 9 months old at that point so I'm going to be a bit limited in the riding I can do.
What I'd like is recommendations for a place we can stay that's near enough to some decent trails so I can get up early most days, go for a quick blast, and be back mid morning. It also needs to be in a nice town that's near enough other things we can do with the family, though we will have a hire car too. Basically, the easier it is for the missus to go and entertain herself and the little chap and absorb some local culture, the more chance I'll have at getting out on the bike. Not that I want to shirk my fatherhood duties at all. Ahem.
I should also be able to wangle an uplift or guided day or two whilst there as well, so any tips on this would also be good - I've heard the trails can be hard to find, so would like to get some help finding the best ones.
I'm up for most kinds of riding, but usually ride natural enduro style trails, so steep/techy stuff preferred. I've heard there is a lot of it!
Any tips / links anyone can give would be really appreciated - been a tough old year and looking forward to a break!
