Vista Lago da Pigra
“Both our trip to Como and our ride to Pigra were more than we could have imagined. Truly, a dream come true. Having Pietro's knowledge and guidance enriched our experience more than we can describe. We'll definitely be returning to ride and see even more!” - John and Lisa | Melbourne AUS
Stats: ~76km | 1994m Climb
Our ride begins along the western shore of the lake keeping as close as we can to the water and riding quiet roads through many beautiful old villages with stately historic homes, including the famous George Clooney villa at Laglio. Leaving the lake just before Argegno we climb by switchback providing excellent views of the lake. We then head away from the lake and continue a gentle 12 km climb to San Fedele d’Intelvi, a perfect spot for a coffee. Here we take the road leading to the village of Pigra. A funicular from Argegno ascends to Pigra, and riding to the station at the top is a must with its awe-inspiring views back down to Lake Como. We then cycle back home the way we came.
