My husband and I did not stay at the hotel but rented road bikes. It was a great experience. They were delivered to our hotel down in the town of Bellagio the night before our scheduled ride. We were scheduled to join a group ride, well we were the only members of the group the next morning with two guides, Lucca and Casey! We are in our mid-50s and decent riders but nervous about what we might be taking on. No need to worry, Lucca and Casey picked a route with some challenge but not killer and the peak of our ride was to the Madonna dei Ghisalio church which has become the church of road bikers, a bit of a museum, with bikes hung from the ceiling. We had such a great time we signed up for their service the next day. We had another great ride with a little more challenge and then a beautiful 13km downhill return!
We kept the bikes one more day and rode along the lakeshore to Calico where we explored a wonderful park right on Lake Como. It was great being on bikes because we saw so much more. We returned to Bellagio by ferry which was so easy. We coordinated all of this through email with Enrica at Il Perlo Panorama. I should also say they honored our first day group ride price, even though it really was a private ride that was more than the 2 hours they said it would be which we appreciated. We orginally thought we might only bike one day, hike another and ferry ride our 3rd but the bikes were so great we just kept on going. Thanks, Casey, Lucca and Elio.
