Descrizione del percorso
New backroads and shortcuts around the lakes. Our Road Cycling Area is up-to-date for 2018 season.
The routes around the Northern Italian Lakes are winding.
You tackle lots of ups and downs, at times through tiny villages, some with cobblestones paths, others with roads wide enough for one car only.
The road cycling area, with its grand Italian lakes (Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano, Lake Como) and numerous small basins (Lake Varese, Lake Orta, Lake Comabbio, Lake Monate, Lake Ganna)offers a unique mix of charms to lovers of cycling and a perfect blend of climbing and descending, of challenge and reward.

Once you get out of town (5-10 kilometres) you essentially have NO traffic.
Pedalling through ancient village, Medieval castles and fortresses, forests, beautiful views, undulating and peaceful roads, gently rolling hillsides, valleys and mountains, challenging climbs, descents and above all, views across the Prealps, Alps, the Monte Rosa Massif and Italy’s northern lakes on the border between Italy and Switzerland.
A guest of ours said as a joke : “This place is nothing but hills. Up and down”

The three most important lakes are, from west to east, Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano, Lake Como.
Lake Maggiore, Italy’s second-largest lake. Lake Como and Lake Lugano are smaller.
Between and around these are several minor lakes - such as Lake Orta, west of Maggiore, and Lake Varese, midway between Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano, as well as Lake Comabbio, Lake Monate, Lake Ganna.
Eight lakes of different sizes surround Varese and Como.
The southern end of area is relatively flat ( approx 300 metres .a.s.l. – 990 feet .a.s.l.) and more peopled, but the northern end is mountainous (approx 1.000 metres a.s.l. - 3,280 feet a.s.l.) as the lakes reach the foothills of the Alps in Switzerland.
The region offers classic images of Italy: balconies over blue water, sleepy cobblestone villages and stone cottages, secluded gardens and exotic flora.
