All of this itinerary, which is circular and easy to follow, is on tarred roads away from the town traffic along farm roads and paths which are easy to ride on mountain bikes; the visitor can discover the plain area of the Mendrisiotto, from the lakeside of Lake Lugano to Stabio.
The starting point of this route is the railway station in Mendrisio, from where you can pedal without any great difficulty; after crossing the area of the old wine cellars and the part of Capolago you reach Melano, the most northern point of this trail, where there the Madonna del Castelletto stands on a small hill (the only viewpoint of this itinerary).
Riding along the lakeside and then continuing towards Stabio you pass by many vineyards which mark the foothills of Monte San Giorgio, on the World Heritage List.
This is a trail which is suitable for families and all those who love to take the opportunity to go for a bike ride combined with stops in places where you can admire cultural signs of the past or taste local products.
