A weekend for cracks! We conquer 2 peaks high above the Lago Maggiore with our bikes on our shoulders.


The ascent on the first day is long and tough, but the 360° panorama during the summit picnic is unique: with good visibility from Monte Rosa to over the Po Valley. After some initial scrambling, the trails back to Ascona first hover on a ridge directly high above the lake, later they alternate between flow and difficult technical sections, such as rock steps with switchbacks. Back at the Lago we have earned ourselves a great gelato!

On the 2nd day we use a cable car for most of the ascent - this makes the summit climb a bit more relaxed and with the repeated dream panorama a pleasure. On the other hand, the descent will be even a little bit harder than on the first day. Strength in the forearms and back wheel hopping help with the endless dance back to the shore of the lake. A jump into the cool water should be very tempting then.
