    On stage 2, komoot user Moelipesche (komoot.de/user/276753923394) takes the lead and takes you from Rivera to Lugano. Right at the beginning you have the choice: You can make the way up to Alpe Foppa on your own, or you can use the mountain railway instead, which saves you around 1,000 meters in altitude and a lot of time.At the top, you can expect a magnificent view. A short detour to the Cappella Santa Maria Degli Angeli is worthwhile: It is an architectural masterpiece and the perfect occasion for a souvenir photo. You can also take a deep breath here, because there is a steep climb towards the antenna on La Manèra, which can be seen from afar. Once at the top, a breathtaking view of Ticino is waiting for you. After a coffee in the Capanna Tamaro, it's downstairs and straight to the point.The following Tamaro Trail has it all. At first it leads over steep stairs and is hardly mobile. Even after that, it remains quite challenging, but becomes increasingly rideable if you have very good bike skills. If not, you just slide. It's worth it, because afterwards it will be wonderfully flowing. But be careful: Challenging root passages or higher heels that require full concentration will surprise you again and again.After the Alpe la Bassa there is a section that is absolutely typical of the area. “You can't get more Ticino Bike”, says Moelipesche about this passage. Beautiful chestnut forests alternate with technical rock passages, both together conjure up a big grin on your face. “This trail is just a dream. The corners of the mouth almost come together at the back of the head because of the sheer smiley face. ”It goes on and on until you finally reach the picturesque Ticino village of Arosio. It's absolutely idyllic here and there is nothing here except a well where you can fill up your water supplies.After the village, another trail awaits you, which leads towards Cademario and spits you out after a short asphalt passage directly on the next trail to Cimo. In the end it gets really demanding again: Between Cimo and Agno there is a nasty steep section that you better leave behind on foot. But as the saying goes: if you love your bike, you push ...Now you are back in civilization. It is not far to the Lugano train station. Your tour ends here and you are spoiled for choice: return home by train? Or would you prefer another stage of our beautiful bike relay?
