    Komoot Pioneer Beat (komoot.de/user/193412189424) had the idea for our “Season Collection” and that's why he's starting this route. Stage 1 leads over 40 kilometers from Sonvico to Rivera and what awaits you here, we summarize with a small quota from Beat: "It's a trail pleasure that doesn't end and our facial expressions constantly switch between grinning and amazement".Right at the start of this tour, things really get down to business: around ten kilometers of uphill are waiting for you. You pedal from around 600 meters up to around 1,600 and you will be rewarded with the finest panoramic views. In addition, you have already managed the thickest chunk of the tour - from now on flowing trail enjoyment, great views and at the end a long descent await you.After you have rested for a while and enjoyed the great view, it goes on. The tunnels of your bike briefly plow Italian soil, while you leave Monte Cucco on the left and head for Passo San Lucio instead. The cozy hut up here is a great opportunity for a little break before a really nice trail with a breathtaking panorama awaits you.At Cima Moncucco, it goes up to another pass, which is also the highest point of the tour at 1,680 meters. There is nothing here, except for the wonderful tranquility and a world-class view all the way to Lake Lugano. In addition, the anticipation increases immeasurably here: not far, then the long descent down to Rivera begins. It's really tough and sometimes it's quite technical.Tips for getting here:
    By SBB to Lugano and from there on by bus 461 to Sonvico Sasselo.
