I Tre Laghi | The Three Lakes
“There were so many moments of this ride I just wanted to close my eyes and hold onto the exhilaration and beauty. But I couldn't! I wanted to see EVERYTHING! ” - Taylor | Los Angeles
Stats: 115km | 1,631m Climb
We begin our ride on the edge of Lake Como and head west crossing into Switzerland with a medium level climb made famous by Australia’s Cadel Evans in 2009, then down to join Lake Lugano. Riding by the lake’s southern shore we will re-enter Italy. Continuing around the lake, now travelling north, we arrive at beautiful Ponte Tresa, an excellent spot for a caffè macchiato or a cappuccino. Taking the road with the River Tresa on our right, it is a gentle ride down to Luino on the shores of Lake Maggiore. We will then start the main climb of the day through some beautiful little villages, crossing into Switzerland again, eventually to arrive back at Ponte Tresa. We then return the way we came, heading back to Cernobbio through Mendrisio and the border town of Chiasso.
