Our cycling tips in and around Lugano

Where we love to ride, grab a coffee or have a glass of wine

Why is Lugano such a popular cycling destination ?

Lugano and its lake which is nestled in between mountains is not only a great place to visit but also a paradise for both road and mountain bikers. If you want a relaxed ride take a tour around the lake and cycle across the Melida causeway which separates the Northern and Southern sections of the lake and is equipped with a great cycle path. The tour of the Southern basin is 50km long and completely flat. Stop off at Morcote which is considered one of the most beautiful towns in Switzerland. If you like to climb head up to Monte Arbostora or cycle South to Morcote and tackle the climb up to Corona. Vincenzo Nibali still has the KOM on this climb. The whole of Ticino is famous as a destination for mountain bikers and from Lugano you can access many great trails. Try doing the “Lugano Bike” MTB route, which is sign posted (n 66) route and leads through the area of the region’s most famous mountains: the Monté Brè, Monte Bar and Monte Tamaro. To cut out the first big climb take the aerial gondola up the Monte Lema.
