ENJOY A CYCLING EXPERIENCE AROUND LAKE MAGGIORE
This 4-day cycling experience at Colmegna on Lake Maggiore is real escape and riding on few-traffic roads for intermediate cyclists, who love to climb.
Northern part of Lake Maggiore offers some unexpected areas of beauty and roads that are great for cycling as they have little traffic and good climbs.
You can explore it, climbing up and away from the lake before heading back to lakeside.
That mean you can get the most out of the cycling experience.
It’s such an attractive area that you will find it hard to keep your eyes on the road rather than the view.
Lake Maggiore is Italy’s second largest lake and set against the resplendent backdrop of the Pre-Alps and of the Monte Rosa Massif.
Lake Maggiore extends from the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland far into the Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy.
CYCLING EXPERIENCE BASED ON LAKE MAGGIORE
The accommodation at Colmegna will be as delightful as the region’s magnificent scenery.
There are plenty of routes for road cycling around Lake Maggiore and its mountains. The lakeside roads are typically wider than around Lake Como, and quieter than Lake Garda. It’s a more popular spot amongst the local road cyclists: a perfect country, in other words, for a cycling experience.
We have designed a cycling esperience around Lake Maggiore to be enjoyable, funny and flexible.
Non-riding partners are welcomed along to share the experience with you.
TOURIST ATTRACTIONS DURING THE CYCLING EXPERIENCE
You can ride through wooded valleys, narrow climbs, fast descends without forgetting to enjoy what the Italian Lake District has to offer: ancient villas, parks, churches and hermitages which were built from Sixteenth Century to the Nineteenth Century, exibitions, history, art, culture.
In particular we suggest to visit Villa della Porta Bozzolo at Casalzuigno, Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso on Lake Maggiore and Sacro Monte of Varese (historic site on the UNESCO Worldwide Heritage List).
