From Miglieglia you can reach the idyllic Maglio del Malcantone and between dirt roads and fields you arrive at Piano di Caroggio. From Arosio, between paved and dirt roads, pass through Alpe Agra and Cademario. Single-track and dirt roads lead to lake Caslano and the Agno estuary. Finally, following the Vedeggio river you come to Rivera, where you can climb the peak of Monte Tamaro or recover at the Splash & Spa.
Continue along the Magliasina river on the dirt road and go up to Piano di Caroggio crossing fields. From Arosio enter the woods passing by Alpe Agra, alternating paved and unpaved roads. Leaving Cademario we continue through the wood between single-track and dirt road. Caslano is reached by crossing the characteristic village centre and lakeside promenade. We continue towards Agno partly along the lakeside promenade where it is possible to see some enchanting estuaries and the park of Agno. From here you go up to Rivera along the Vedeggio river, on unpaved and shady stretches. From Rivera you can leave for Monte Tamaro, with its attractions, a mountain that can also be climbed by mountain bike along a partial dirt road. To complete the stage and recover we suggest a stop at Splash & Spa.
