Founder and Lead Guide

Peitro Zendalli

About 35 years ago I moved my raw cotton broker/textile business from Milano to Lake Como never imagining that one day my passion for cycling could become my full time job.

I started cycling in the 80’s mainly to train for cross country skiing events. One day, back in 1985, an article in a magazine about an extraordinary event held on Hawaii’s Big Island caught my attention. I wrote to the organizers if I could participate, not knowing I'd be the first from Italy to ever compete in it. So I decided to go. At the time I didn’t realize it would become the most prestigious triathlon race in the world - Kona’s Ironman.

I started Lake Como Cycling in 2005 - the very first road bike rental & touring company in Lake Como.
