Winter is no limit

It's snowing outside and you don't know what to do? Do you mind hibernating your bike, but you don't want to use it in the snow, between cold and short days?
In Ticino winter has no limit and offers many possibilities for cycling lovers. Ticino awaits you!

In Ticino the snow rarely reaches the valley floor and for a few days a year. The further away from the Alps, the more paths are accessible and can be covered by mountain bike, without ever forgetting respect for hikers and private property.
Here are some itineraries that can be covered (almost) all year round breathing fresh air and quietness. Remember, however, that it is always better to check the weather and the condition of the trails/paths before starting to ride.
