Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    We meet at our shop at 9:00 for bike-fitting and tour presentation. We'll go over safety, rules of the road, and our route on our shop map of the area. We begin our tour biking along the lakeside, enjoying constant views of Lake Como before we start climbing into the valley. We'll stop at a beautiful viewpoint of Lake Como's Eastern branch for pictures, and once again at the popular cyclists' fountain in Bellagio. After a short descent we begin the long, but gradual hill climb to the Madonna del Ghisallo cycling chapel and museum, passing through some unique and old town centers along the way. Upon reaching the top of the hill, we visit the Ghisallo chapel and museum (ticket included), both representative of the sport of cycling and why it is so important to this area of Italy. After our visit, we descend back to our shop where a delicious Italian lunch awaits (included).

    Hotel pickups and dropoffs (in Bellagio) available upon request.

    Once my wife and I decided we were going to Lake Como I immediately started looking for guided rides near by. Bike it Bellagio offered the option of e-bikes which, for a guy who’d never done enough hill climbing was a perfect fit. The Guide was Luca, the owner and the lady who

    Grazie mille Dante! We're so happy you enjoyed our ride with us! It was great having you for the tour and we are still so impressed you didn't need to use the e-bike feature! Great job on those climbs. Thanks again and we look forward to riding with you another time in Bellagio!

    Grazie mille Kevin! Such a beautiful review, we are really happy to read about your great experience with us and we're so glad to have been able to ride with you both and share our passion for cycling and our area! We're so glad you enjoyed the Porlezza route as well, it's a nice, scenic riding option that allowed you both to ride together and see some of the best parts of Lake Como's western side! Thanks so much again and we hope to see you both another time in Bellagio!

    We had a great time and would love to go back for another tour! Our guide was fun and informative. The route in Bellagi was hilly but with the e-bikes, it was as easy or as challenging as we wanted to make it. Thanks for a fun experience!

    Grazie mille Paul! It was great having you on the trip and we're so glad that you decided to rent one of our top of the line Bianchis and that you loved it! The Infinito CV is one of the most comfortable, high performing endurance road bikes around--perfect for our 850km cycle. Thanks so much for your input about renting rather than bringing your own bike. It certainly is less hassle and it's nice to try another awesome (and Italian :D ) bike when travelling. Thanks again and see you next year!
