Discovering Lake Como with e-bikes

Discovering Lake Como with E-bikes is a wonderful experience! With an e-bike, sport and activity travel is now a possibility for anyone who can ride a traditional bike.

Riding an e-bike is like riding a normal bicycle, but easier

When going downhill or riding on flat surfaces on an e-bike, it feels the same as a traditional bicycle. The difference is notable (and greatly appreciated) when riding uphill or against headwinds. It’s as if you have an extra push. A common preconception of the e-bike is that you don’t have to pedal. Contrary to common belief, an e-bike is not a bicycle that turns into a scooter. Sorry to burst your bubble – but yes, you must pedal.  You still get good exercise when using an e-bike. With electrically assisted pedaling, cycling becomes more fluid and the effort is minimized. Even the laziest of us can get up a steep incline.

E-bikes Support Sustainable Tourism

E is for electric but also ecological. With increased interest and awareness for the environment, e-bikes are becoming an important contribution to sustainable tourism and lifestyle. A global e-bike boom tells us that the future of transportation is in the making. Congested city centers and the increased costs of fossil fuels are encouraging more and more people to turn to e-biking. According to Forbes the worldwide forecast for e-bike sales is estimated to reach up to 40 million units by 2023.

With this new lifestyle trend, tourism is also changing. Travelers that already use e-bikes are looking for e-bike rentals and excursions. Curious tourists that are interested in new experiences are booking cultural activity tours. Destinations that were once difficult to explore, can now be discovered on an e-bike, bringing economic and social benefits to the local communities.

Slow Food and Fast Pedaling

An e-bike is a fantastic way to discover Lake Como. The narrow lanes and backstreet shortcuts let you experience the area in a new, exciting way.

We have created three e-bike and food itineraries here on Lake Como.  The rolling terraced hills of Montevecchia and upper-hamlets of Bellagio and Lecco can easily be explored with our expert guides and an e-bike! We’ll take you along hidden roads to secret spots that only the locals know.

Bellagio Bike & Eat Tour

The Bellagio Bike & Eat Tour brings you through the ancient hamlets and through the town of Bellagio. You will discover shortcuts through the cobblestoned streets and see a 360° view of Lake Como from the upper hillside. A stop at a local “bottega” for wine and cheese tasting is the perfect reward. Afterward, enjoy a leisurely visit to the Villa Melzi gardens overlooking the crystalline blue waters of the lake.

Bike & Wine Tasting Tour

The Bike & Wine Tasting Tour is 4 hours of pure pleasure and charm. We shall meet up in Lecco and transfer to the heart of the green Brianza area to enjoy the quiet bicycle trails and vineyard of scenic Montevecchia. A visit to a boutique winery where you will meet the owners who will teach you about the fine art of winemaking and let us taste the delicious “Brigante” served with local gourmet specialties.
