The Anello del Grappa bike route is a great sign posted route that takes you around the base of the Monte Grappa using secondary roads, bike paths, and some sections of main roads.  The route is a great one day ride of 135 km and you should have a good base of miles in the legs prior to attempting.  Even though, there are no large climbs the route does have a few short ramps and moves in and out of the lower valley's.  For those less fit this makes a great 2 day route by starting either in Bassano del Grappa and riding to Feltre and returning to Bassano del Grappa.  Weather you ride clock wise, or counter clock wise you will have about the same difficulty level. I find that the clock wise route is the most scenic and enjoyable.
