Project Description

Ticino Tre Laghi – Hidden Single Tracks

Multi stage enduro tour around Lago di Lugano.

6 days of collecting and enjoying trail descents in Ticino

Starting from Lago Maggiore, going around Lago di Lugano, visiting Lago di Como and than back again, that is our route. Here in the southern part of Ticino we try to find the best trails of the region you can get in 6 days. We will be using our own shuttle and the cablecars which lie on our way to get the ultimate enduro experience. Because of the quite low maximum heights (around 1,900m) and the southern climate, this trip is possible quite early every year. And of course also in late autumn there are still fine temperatures. The big lakes are compareable to Lake Garda, with the difference that in this region there is less bike tourism. The downhills are often very long, because the single tracks are not steep and therefore have lots of kilometers. Just perfect terrain for mountain biking.

Flow trails with lake view

In addition to the riding comes the southern flair. Due to the daily changing hotels, we are looking at a different lake every evening. With these nice views, the food and wine tastes even better. The holiday feeling is waiting for us.

Target group

Most of the single tracks during this journey have a smooth characteristic with long flow parts. Of course there are also technical section where a solid technique is necessary. These parts can be used well to learn and improve your skills. The daily shuttles take away a lot of height meters, but you should still be in shape to do 1,000m uphill using your own power. Some uphill parts are also on singletracks, where skilled and fit riders will have fun and the more pleasure orientated riders may have to push the bike upwards.

During the trip we take our time to try difficult sections several times and give you useful tips to lift your riding skills to a higher level.
