Route #6

Il Crocione

Bellagio, Tremezzo, Monte Tremezzo, Bellagio
Level of difficulty: Hard Length: 60 km Elevation gain: 2.100 m

It’s the most scenic and technical route you can ride. From the lake you reach the small village of Pigra thanks to its funicular, then climb the ridegline of Monte Tremezzo along the old military road. To your right you will have Lake Como while on the left you will see Lake Lugano and Switzerland. After the Rifugio Venini the real off-road adventure begins along a narrow single track. The descent is rocky and made even more difficult by the free-range farm animals that you might encounter, so pay attention. While descending you will also pass through a long tunnel dug out of the rockface by the Italian military in the First World War.
