Biking and Sailing on Lake Como

Hi everyone,

My boyfriend and I are going to have three days on Lake Como. We're hoping to rent a small sailboat (we don't need a captain) one day and a bike another. We are staying in Colico Piano (I know it's a bit out of the usual way, but the price was right :) ) and we will be traveling by train/ferry. Can anyone suggest places to rent bikes and/or sailboats? We're looking for the least expensive options available...we're on a rather tight budget but hope to make both these activities happen! Any advice you have would be much appreciated.

You're definitely going to be in the right place for the activities you'd like to do, as that area tends to be well set up and organized for sporting pursuits. You could try one of these for boats:

or one of these for bikes:

Pedaleggiando (Sorico) +39 338 4717186

pedaleggiando@tiscali.it

http://www.tabosurf.com/en/home.jsp?idrub=6

I'm betting once you get there you won't have much trouble tracking things down -- many of these places will rent both, too.

Thank you very much for this information - it looks like there are some great options! Do you think we can wait to book when we get there (so we have an idea of the weather) or do you think everything will be booked by then? We will be there in the end of May. Thanks again for all your advice!

I don't think you need to worry about reserving anything in advance (assuming you're talking about equipment rather than lodging), although if you're looking at weekend days, you might want to send out feelers for the boat about a week beforehand just to be sure.

Enjoy!
