We meet at our shop at 9:00 for bike-fitting and tour presentation. We'll go over safety, rules of the road, and our route on our shop map of the area. We begin our tour biking along the lakeside, enjoying constant views of Lake Como before we start climbing into the valley. We'll stop at a beautiful viewpoint of Lake Como's Eastern branch for pictures, and once again at the popular cyclists' fountain in Bellagio. After a short descent we begin the long, but gradual hill climb to the Madonna del Ghisallo cycling chapel and museum, passing through some unique and old town centers along the way. Upon reaching the top of the hill, we visit the Ghisallo chapel and museum (ticket included), both representative of the sport of cycling and why it is so important to this area of Italy. After our visit, we descend back to our shop where a delicious Italian lunch awaits (included).
Hotel pickups and dropoffs (in Bellagio) available upon request.
