There are plenty of routes for road cycling around Lake Maggiore and its mountains. And with the lake road 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 bike riding. We have designed our cycling holiday around Lake Maggiore to be enjoyable, funny and flexible. The accommodation will be as delightful as the region’s magnificent scenery. Non-riding partners are welcomed along to share the experience with you.
