Ride in the Land of Champions

The area around Lake Maggiore has always been very popular with cyclists, and over the decades Varese has produced many champions who have made their mark on the history of cycling. Since 1900 a succession of Varese natives have ridden their way to the top of the sport: riders of the calibre of Luigi GannaAlfredo BindaMichele MaraWladimiro Panizza, Claudio ChiappucciIvan Basso and Stefano Garzelli.

The Varese area offers routes and rides for all levels of fitness and training with an awe-inspiring variety of experiences: you can enjoy gentle rides along the banks of the lake, explore the woods, follow the rivers through the neighbouring valleys, or challenge yourself on steep climbs with some gradients that even exceed 20%!
The Province of Varese and Lake Maggiore also offer a wealth of off-road experiences with extreme slopes and tricky terrain for mountain biker and cross-country trails with steep descents and rough tracks for downhill fans. For thrill-seeking mountain bikers we recommend the northern part of the province where you can explore woods and dirt tracks that hug the mountains and offer panoramic views of Lake Maggiore, the Alps and Monte Rosa.
