Lake Como Guided Bike Tours

3-5 nights at Casa Magnolia

Introductory offer for 2020: €250 per night*

(*based on 2 people sharing the first-floor apartment)

Let’s Escape – Lake Como Cycling Tours operate from Casa Magnolia.  Casa Magnolia is set above the lake road just north of Argegno, in the Lombardy region of Italy, with stunning views across Lake Como. 

This is the perfect base for road cycling tours; the proximity to the Alps provides challenging climbs and Lakeside routes, all through pretty Italian villages with great coffee-stops en-route and incredible views.

The Lombary region of Italy boasts some of the best cycling terrain in Europe – world famous cycle race the Giro d’Italia runs through the region on an annual basis. In 2020 the longest stage of the race (stage 19 on 29/05/2020) will run directly past Casa Magnolia and through Argegno!

All tours start and finish at Casa Magnolia and can be adapted or combined to make longer/shorter/higher/flatter rides as required.  A typical 3-day tour may include two morning rides, finishing back at Casa Magnolia just before lunch to allow guests time to explore the Lake, plus a full day/6 hour ride. Price include coffee and Italian pastry at the midway coffee stop and ferry charges if necessary. All bike rides will be tailored to your own requirements.

The area is fantastic for riders and their families as there is so much to see at the lake with excellent public transport links, both buses and ferries.

Cycling Tours are guided by experienced cyclist and tour guide, Colin who lives in the top floor apartment of Casa Magnolia:
 
Colin: “I have a passion for road-biking and group tours. I’ve lived and cycled in mountainous regions across the world including the Alps, South Korean Mountain ranges, Colorado and Oman.”
 
Our guests say: "Colin is an excellent guide, and a font of knowledge of the local area. He quickly develops an understanding of your cycling ability, and tailors the rides to suit, both speeds and gradients... a great motivator"
 
"Colin knew every village, turn, Chapel and bakery, and even threw in a little local history en-route... Colin knows the area so well he will be able to match your abilities with the best routes and views"

Customer Reviews

  • “An excellent opportunity for a guided cycle around the local hills, the lakes, and further afield if required. Colin is an excellent guide, and a font of knowledge of the local area. He quickly develops an understanding of your cycling ability, and tailors the rides to suit, both speeds and gradients. Never leaves anyone behind, and is quite happy to ride alongside you, offering advice and general chat to get you up some of the steeper climbs, a great motivator. We enjoyed the cycling and company so much, we are going back next year, to explore some more of the climbs.”

  • “Great area to cycle around with lots of climbing and routes along the lake. Colin was a great ride leader full of local knowledge with great cafes. Pauline was back at the ranch prepping some home cooked food in the evening. Loved the local bars with complimentary canapés. Accommodation was comfortable in particular the upper flat with living room and kitchen.”
