Komoot user Roger (komoot.de/user/414097041566) takes you on stage 4 of our Ticino MTB relay. Roger actually wanted to go to the Maggia valley, but since it had rained, he spontaneously decided to do this flat and relaxed “culture” circuit to the river delta of the Maggia. After three demanding days in the mountains, such a little rest is definitely welcome in this collection. So get on your bike and look forward to slippery bike paths, the beautiful old town of the holiday resort Locarno and the picturesque Maggia delta with a great view of Lake Maggiore.The tour begins with a relaxing drive through the beautiful old town of Bellinzona. Since you are making fast progress today, you can still spend some time here and treat yourself to a coffee or an ice cream before continuing. When you leave the city, you will soon reach the banks of the Ticino, which you follow for a while on a beautiful bike path. If you drive past Locarno airport, it is not far to the Italian-speaking holiday resort.When you arrive in Locarno, you will be greeted with a great view of Lake Maggiore. Along its shore you roll over a beautiful (bike) path with a panoramic view. Here it is worthwhile to simply park the bike and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere for a while - maybe with a delicious ice cream.Now you roll on. Passing various parks you reach the Maggia, which you cross over a small bridge to finally reach its confluence with Lake Maggiore. It's especially nice here when the sun goes down - maybe your timing is right? On the way back, the tour leads across the impressive market square of Locarno, where you are guaranteed to find a nice restaurant where you can strengthen yourself and end the day.Tip:If you don't want to stay in Locarno, you can take the train back to the starting point of the tour in Bellinzona very quickly (only takes around 30 minutes).
