Leaving busy Lake Como behind, we wind our way into the Val Sanagra nature reserve – lying just above Menaggio, it is one of the lake’s best-kept secrets. Step back in time as we pass evocative stone houses and old water mills dotted along the banks of a gentle mountain stream. We take a slow cycle further into the mountains, passing historic villages and grassy green fields, and generally enjoying the peace and quiet before the fun begins! A glorious, shady downhill with stunning views guides us onto the shores of Lake Lugano. An effortless cycle to our third lake, Lake Piano, gives us the chance to unwind along the quiet country roads that become our playground.
