Level of difficulty:
Easy and flat routes on road and cycle paths. Other routes are undulating / rolling with a few gentle, small and short climbs, with easy gradients and few hills for cycling. For the leisure cyclist who exercises regularly, fairly fit. A few short and easy climbs every day with 3 -5 hours cycling. Our area is characterized by a continuous up and down. It has a typically hilly and mountainous landscape in the northern part (approx 3,280 feet - 1.000 metres a.s.l.) and relatively flat (approx. 980 feet - 300 metres a.s.l.) in the southern part. The average elevation gain is approx. 300 feet - 100 metres every 6.20 miles - 10 km. There are longer flat sections along the shores of Lakes or in the valleys only. Low traffic on most of the roads and cycle paths. Average daily distance: approx. 20/30 miles – 30/50 km.
The hotel is a family business and all the siblings work there. Our staff shares the Italian passion for cycling with our guests. There is a special locked with CCTV bicycle storage room, where the bikes are protected against weather and theft. We also have a bike workshop with a bench, bike stand and racks. All meals are included. Everyday we prepare fresh baking at breakfast, a bike packet (strengthened and protein content snack with bananas and sandwiches) for your daily ride and a afternoon buffet snack when you’ll be back at the hotel.
Tours feature undulating and peaceful roads with little traffic among gently rolling hillsides, valleys and mountains, climbs, descents and above all, views across the Prealps, Alps, the Monte Rosa Massif and Italy’s northern lakes. Eleven lakes of different sizes surround Varese. You will mainly follow small and scenic roads, with few road signs. You might think that, alas, this is not the place for gentle and slow cycling. And you would be right. However, we planned itineraries where you can avoid cycling any big hills and medium sized hills too. We are adept at avoiding as many as possible main busy roads. Our professional guides are natives of Varese and their experience can help you find the best routes including those hidden lanes and special discoveries you will not find on a map. Our guide does the navigation so you can relax and enjoy the ride. Some stops are planned along the tour. You can visit villas, gardens, museums, churches, castles and other attractions. We offer a choice of several circular routes and you can choose among them. Every route has different options to accommodate different training and preparation levels. They have distances between 12 to 50 miles - 20 and 90 km, with each ride carefully planned to make sure you see the best of the area. Sometimes we’ll get back to the base by train. The routes almost totally include cycle paths and quite roads with low traffic. Back in the saddle, you can then explore the area among Lake Varese, Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano. We can ride as long as you like. Take your time, don’t worry. There is always time for a break, or a snack, or a picture. The rides may be done in a laidback and friendly environment, in small groups with similar skill and ability. Highlights
