Riding around the picturesque Lake Como, provides a scenic cycling experience. A ride to the Shrine of Madonna del Ghisallo is a must for cycling enthusiasts visiting Lake Como. This revered shrine, perched on a hill, is dedicated to the Patroness of Cyclists. The journey includes a challenging climb through scenic landscapes and forests, culminating in a visit to the shrine with its iconic bicycle museum. It’s a spiritual and cultural experience that connects cyclists to the rich history of the sport while offering breathtaking views of Lake Como..
In contrast, Bormio, located in the Alps, offers a thrilling and challenging Giro D’Italia climbs. The area is renowned for its mountain passes and dramatic landscapes, making it a haven for avid cyclists. You can tackle legendary routes like the Stelvio Pass, Gavia Pass, and Mortirolo Pass, all of which provide steep ascents and exhilarating descents. The terrain is not for the faint of heart, but the reward is awe-inspiring alpine scenery and a sense of accomplishment.
