Lugano Bike Nr. 66 – Stage 2 – Pairolo – Rivera

Mountain Bike

Thrilling panorama trail.


Thanks to the spectacular viewpoints, this is the most exciting part of the entire itinerary. Cycling along the mountain ridge, between Pairolo and Gola di Lago, and with its alternation of single-track and dirt roads, the route is a classic for mountain bikers. A stage that also stands out for the presence of mountain pastures, meadows and three mountain huts: Pairolo, Capanna San Lucio and Capanna Monte Bar.
