Ready to Join?

Are you up for a relaxing bicycle ride around Lake Lugano? Are you ready to cross borders more than once, and take some nice little dips? Well, take your swimsuit!

This Italian-Swiss biking excursion will unfold in a clockwise fashion, starting from Porto Ceresio train station. These are the towns we'll be passing by: Brusino Arsizio, Riva San Vitale, Melano, Bissone, Melide, Morcote, Collina d'Oro, Agno, Caslano, Lavena Ponte Tresa, Brusimpiano, and then back to Porto Ceresio.

Some facts:
- excursion's length, approx 50 km;
- suggested bike type: road, trekking, hybrid, gravel, MTB - no Graziellas or rusty city draggers;
- bike must be working properly: gears and brakes ok;
- should wear a helmet;
- bring sunscreen, water bottle, your own food (we might have coffees along the way, but count on being food-independent);
- expect to be taking it easy, but not too much - ok to take some pics along the way, but not all the time.
- have your national ID or passport ready for unlikely border checks.

This excursion is aimed at including as many people as possible, so do not get scared off by total length of ride, as there ain't gonna be any hills along the way.
