Pietro, and Lake Como Cycling, will meet all your expectations. We have just booked our third trip! We cycled Lake Como and Lake Lugano two years ago for our first trip and we were hooked. We, along with our friends, were treated to a custom trip with wonderful accommodations and local knowledge of the best restaurants and fun things to do. The cycling was breathtaking and the well maintained equipment will not disappoint. Last year, we cycled Costa Brava in Spain and had the time of our lives. The support van and our driver, Cody made the trip worry free. Pietro knows Europe and the routes like the back of his hand as a local Italian with a life long love of cycling. (And he speaks excellent English.)We loved the coast and seeing all the pros train on the same routes we were tackling. We can’t wait to see Tuscany this summer. Lake Como Cycling has a personal touch that you will not find anywhere else. We have tried other companies and they do not compare.  LCC will customize your trip to your skill and level of fitness.  The thing that sets LCC apart is Pietro, you will love cycling with him. He is so kind and personable. We consider him a friend that we look forward to seeing every year! - Cindy and Keith | North Carolina


Hi Pietro .. Wow, what a morning, just loved the ride up to the Madonna del Ghisallo and the personal tour you gave of the Museo del Ciclismo. Loved the Colonago you arranged for and a perfect set up made for a great day on the bike. I am just so jealous of the area you live in and the riding you have right at your doorstep, I would move here tomorrow if I could. You are a true professional and I can't wait to visit again. As discussed I will talk to my friends back home in Australia and if I can get enough interest I'd love to talk to you about putting together a Italian Bike Tour for us. Once again thank you for the ride. Best Wishes - Matt | Yamba NSW Australia


We used Pietro and Lake Como Cycling in 2014. We were two families from Canada. We had a wonderful trip through the Lombardy region of Italy. Pietro has an excellent equipment and support crew. Everything went flawlessly. I cannot recommend Lake Como Cycling enough. In fact, we have just arranged for another self guided trip with Pietro for September 2017. This time we will be cycling through the beautiful island of Sicily. We have added a third family and all 3 families are excited about our next adventure with Pietro and Lake Como Cycling. - Steve  | Vernon, B.C. Canada

Pietro, thank you so much for renting the bicycles to us! They were really perfect and we had a wonderful time! The Dogma was perfect for climbing the Muro Di Sormano.

Hello Pietro. Thank you so very much for a wonderful experience today! I will never forget! On the boat to Como now - Kathryn | Toronto CA


Hello! We are now back home after 3 FANTASTIC DAYS OF BICYCLING around the 3 great lakes (Como/Lugano/Maggiore) and some beautiful mountain villages.

Had two fantastic days of riding - today was a full day bellagio-passo del ghisallo-nesso and back. What a beautiful place to ride! It was a pleasure to meet you and have the opportunity to rent one of your bikes. Ciao - Peter | Boston MA

Buongiorno ... want to say Thank You ! To all of you there in Lake Como Cycling. The red Romeo worked very well and the distance travelled in three days were something like 300 hundred kilometers. Como, Mendrisio, Varenna and Lugano becomed familiar with - Kalle | Finland


Hi, I just wanted to thank you and the Lake Como Cycling team for your friendly efficient assistance in arranging and providing myself with a hire bike today. It was a very nice bike to ride and rode perfectly. It provided me with a unique and very enjoyable ride around Bellagio and Magreglio I will remember. Grazie - Nick | Adelaide


Pietro Thank you for organizing my ride. Your help before and during my visit to Como was outstanding. Only regret I have is not riding more than one day. It was a great bike and epic ride. The climb to Madonna del Ghisallo was incredible. As a side note, the gentleman dropping off my bike inadvertently overcharged me 35 Euro and someone from Como Cycling returned it to me before I returned from my ride. Wow! That says it all about Lake Como Cycling. I truly appreciate your honesty. Thank You - Rick | Doylestown, PA


Hello Pietro, Thanks so much for organizing Andrea our guide and the bikes. We had an unforgettable day and it made Gary's 50th very special. Also a massive thank you for recommending the restaurant!!! Yours Sincerely - Lisa | Bristol UK


My friend and I had two great rides on Friday and Saturday in the Lake Como-Lugano area Lastly, we rode up the Belaggio to Ghizallo clim on Friday in Belgian national jerseys and got interviewed by Belgian Tv! Check it out Thank you!  - Randy | Minneapolis


Would just like to say a big thank-you for a wonderful training camp in tossa del mar: Pietro is (as always) the perfect host, the hotel is perfect and (most importantly) the cycling is excellent. Just about to book my third consecutive year - Kevin  | Southend/Hockley


Pietro, thankyou for the last few days. Really great ! As the great american general Mcarthur once said "We shall return !" - Stephen and Maria | Sydney


Hi LCC, just a few words of thanks for the amazing service and bike I got from you on the 13th June 2012. After spending 1/2 a day searching in Como for a bike to rent I found your web address on Google. After a quick phone call bike and cycling shoes were delivered early next morning, a quick adjustment to the saddle and I was away. The bike was a dream to ride, no aches or pains after spending most of the day in the saddle. The SPD cleats did get a few looks but it made walking around the various sites very comfortable. Most of your clients are probably forward planers and have booked well in advance through the web but you should get your name out in the Hotels and information centres in the area. I was told everywhere it is not possible to rent a bike but I was determined to go for a spin so checked the web as a last resort. I would have missed out on the magnificent spin to Bellagio and Madonna Di Ghisallo if I went with the local knowledge. Thanks again - Joe | Dublin


Hi Keith Not sure where you live ... I live in Ontario and have agreed to be a reference for and if possible give some insight into my experience with Lake Como Cycling. Last October my wife and I was give a very pleasant 1 day tour by Pietro the owner of Lake Como Cycling in and around the Como area. The next day using one of Pietro's bikes ... which was a year or 2 old Time with carbon frame and Ultegra and in very good condition .....I cycled by myself from Como and up to the Madonna del Ghisallo which is an outstanding ride and climb ... from there I descended into Bellagio where I met my wife for lunch on the patio of the Metropolition Hotel ... she had taken the high speed ferry from Como to Bellagio ... we both returned on the ferry to Como ... all in a memorable day. Pietro should be able to get you a bike that you will be happy with and point you in the right direction. If I can be of any further help email or call. Cheers - Ken | Ontario CA


Hi Pietro, Greetings from “ Down under”. I just wanted to thank you for the bike, friendship, and such a fabulous time you showed us ( ie Tony and me ) in terms of great bike rides and terrific restaurants. All the best  - Mark | Brisbane


Pietro and Nicole, Clotho and I would like to thank you again for your extraordinary efforts this past week to make our third cycling holiday with you something special!

Grazie mille! - Brant and Clotho | Azerbaijan

The bike was great. I rode Erba-Como-Bellagio-Ghisallo-Erba. Incredible ride today! - Ryan | Utah


Buongiorno Pietro. Yes, everything went very well. We had a fantastic ride and the bikes performed perfectly. It was quite a challenge getting up to Ghisallo from Bellagio, but we did it and were rewarded with some crazy downhills into Asso and beyond. Thanks for making this experience possible. - Randy Anderson | Minneapolis
