It’s Friday evening. After a long week at the office, what’s better than packing-up the E-Bikes into the Van and hitting the road for a weekend in Italy? Alongside Karen and Holger, join the adventure to discover their experience with Italian riding culture. Thanks to their SCOTT Genius eRIDE, they can pedal up to the top of the nicest trails around Lake Garda.
Holger and Karen’s van is the ultimate dream camper for riders– fully optimized for biking, you have the living quarters in the front and a bike garage in the back.
Usually they bring the kids as well, but this time Grandma is taking care of them. So Holger is even more motivated to drive and spend a weekend with Karen.
"Having the van is perfect for us, we look at the weather forecast and we go where the sun is shining" – Holger
Welcome to Italia. Riva Del Garda is a long drive but it’s always worth it – food, trails, breathtaking views, one of the best places when it starts to be cold in the mountains.
"What’s better than waking up next to the trails, preparing your bike, your backpack and going for a day of riding?" – Holger
Every ride starts with a good coffee!
“We know the area pretty well after all these years but thanks to the e-bikes we can now link trails which were only fun to ride with shuttles before" – Holger
After a solid ride in the morning, time to fill up the battery for more action in the afternoon.
"When we go for a long day like this, we don’t take a second battery, but we carry our charger, it’s lighter and smaller. As Restaurants are mandatory stops in Italy, while we eat we give our battery for a quick reboost" – Karen
Classic balcony view from Riva’s height. "Having the assistance for going uphill opens a lot of possibilities and particularly these sorts of breathtaking views – Holger."

End of the day, time to hit the road again for Holger and Karen towards more trails.
