Cycling in the Larian Triangle
Pedaling past small lakes, scenic vistas and small frescoed villages
A 37-km loop route starting and returning to Canzo, a town surrounded by greenery accompanied at its entrance by the waters of Lake Segrino, a small pre-alpine basin of glacial origin. The route is intended for cyclists with good technical ability, as it has a positive elevation gain of about 1,155 m and significant gradients of up to 30 percent. We recommend riding the route over two days in order to have the opportunity to enjoy the typical experiences of the Lario related to them and to admire the naturalistic and historical points of interest that can be encountered.
You will be able to walk through the history of cycling from a visit to the Madonna del Ghisallo Cycling Museum to a foray into a craft workshop that still makes wooden bicycle rims; from manipulating goat's milk paste with wild herbs gathered locally to a picnic on the pasture with traditional products. You will visit tiny mountain villages and shrines dedicated to the Virgin Mary, encounter nature in its most varied forms: small lakes, erratic boulders and springs. You will have the opportunity to learn about the art that permeates the villages of the Larian Triangle.
