    This amazing circular route delivers it all: hidden villages, rustic charm, spectacular lake views, quiet mountain roads to cycle, and a stop on Lake Lugano.
    Leaving busy Lake Como behind, we’ll wind our way into the Val Sanagra nature reserve – lying just above Menaggio, it is one of the lake’s best-kept secrets. Step back in time as you pass evocative stone houses and old water mills dotted along the banks of the gentle Sanagra river.

    You will take a slow cycle further into the mountains, riding through the historic villages of Velzo and Naggio, surrounded by grape vines and grassy green fields. A glorious, shady downhill with stunning views guides us onto the shores of Lake Lugano via the old town centre of Porlezza.

    We’ll take a break by the beach to take in the scenery and, if you wish, to buy a nice drink.

    An effortless cycle to our third lake, Lake Piano, will give you the chance to unwind along the quiet country roads that become our playground. We’ll follow the old railway line, now a cycle path, that once connected Lake Como to Lake Lugano until we complete our loop and end back in the Renaissance hamlet of Cardano.

    This tour perfectly showcases how e-biking can take everyone everywhere!
