    Stage 5 begins and ends in Locarno, where komoot user Roger hands over the baton to Rolf (komoot.de/user/103043249705), who has explored the mountains west of Locarno on this beautiful round trip. The good, old Enduro principle applies: First you cycle up simple, paved and mostly even asphalted mountain roads, and then you can enjoy really good, sometimes demanding trails in the middle of the mountains.The tour starts in the middle of Locarno. From here you first take a course for the shores of Lake Maggiore with the splendid lake promenade of Ascona. It is the perfect warm-up program with a Mediterranean atmosphere and various opportunities to start your trip in style with a coffee. But as soon as you leave Ascona behind you, chilling is over.Now an uphill stretch of more than ten kilometers lies ahead of you, which slowly but surely takes you higher and higher over narrow mountain roads until you finally reach the highest point of the tour at around 1,300 meters. Time to get off the road and take the trail that bends to the left! From now on, it's not just your legs that have something to do, your head too: The crisp trail to the idyllic mountain village of Rasa is peppered with challenging carpets of roots and all kinds of rocky passages and requires your full attention. Nevertheless, the ride here is quite flowy - it's a great mix of different levels of difficulty and occasional sliding sections.Behind Rasa, the route is then blocked for a while, so that you have to descend again and again in the finest "Bike & Hike" fashion. But that's just part of a mountain tour and you can also enjoy the wonderful landscape much better on two legs. At the latest when you see the Palagnedra reservoir, it will be much more relaxed again. You are now driving into the picturesque Centovalli valley and following the Melezza river via various roads and paths back to Locarno. “An all-round great tour”, Rolf is sure of that!
