far from traffic, near the Varese Lake, you can find the bike trail lane. It is 27 km long and goes near small cities and woods. There are water sources (not plenty but some), some bar and nice views

We hired bikes at Gavirate and loved the scenic ride around Lake Varese. Stopped at Schiranna for lunch and explored the beaches and wildlife en-route.

On Lake Varese You can rent bicycles in Gavirate (at the Lido) and in Bodio Lomnago at "Fattoria Gaggio". On Lake Comabbio you can rent bicycles in Ternate at "Montelago Hotel". I wish You a nice trip to Varese.
