    Claro to Maccagno

    July 18, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Bike path to Bellinzona. Called at tourist office for ferry timetable. Alas, no ferries to Luino or Macagno. Looks like we are riding after all.
    Bicycle tour guide overheard our questions to the tourist office and kindly described the best route to Macagno.
    As it turned out, we followed a good bike path all the way to Lago Maggiore. The lake is busy with holidays on -swimmers, boats etc. Fortunately, it was lunchtime and the lake road was relatively quiet. We rode across the Swiss-Italian border onto an even better road. After a few kms an old roadie jumped on the front and drafted us nearly all the way to Macagno, where we meet up with Karen & Eric.
    Lunch, drinks, swim in the lake, Ice-creams and the afternoon was gone. Stayed overnight at the free camping platz.
