Itinerary

Day 1 - Geneva to Sierre
Our adventure will begin with a beautiful ride along the south side Lake Geneva before turning south along the Rhone Valley. We will then enjoy 50 miles of traffic-free, fairly flat cycling on good tarmac alongside the river - bliss! We will stay the night in the old town of Sierre.
Day 2 - Sierre to Airolo
Day 2 - Sierre to Airolo
We will leave Sierre and enjoy 30 miles of beautiful, fairly flat cycle paths before climbing gradually from Brig to Ulrichen. We will then enjoy a climb through the Nufenen Pass (the second highest mountain pass with a paved road in Switzerland!) before enjoying the descent into Airolo.
Day 3 - Airolo to Lake Como
Day 3 - Airolo to Lake Como
Leaving Airolo, we will enjoy a morning ride downhill into Italy and the Italian Lakes, going part way around Lake Maggiore before cycling along Lake Lugano and across to Lake Como.
Day 4 - Lake Como to Milan
Day 4 - Lake Como to Milan
Our final day will start with the scenic route to Milan by cycling around part of Lake Como before climbing to visit the patron saint of cycling at the Madonna del Ghisallo. We then cycle to the east of Milan before the last 30 miles into the centre of Milan on a traffic-free cycle path alongside a canal. Depending on your legs, it is possible to cut this day short and avoid the climb above Como to the Madonna del Ghisallo.
