Bicicò information

Lonely Planet review

The mountain itself offers good biking trails as well as walking opportunities (it takes about four hours to walk from Stresa to the top). Bicicò rents out mountain bikes at the lower Stresa cable-car station. Rates include a helmet and road book detailing a 25km panoramic descent (about three hours, of which only about 30 minutes require slight ascents, thus making it accessible to pretty much anyone who can ride a bike) from the top of Mottarone back to Stresa. A one-way trip with a bike on the cable car to Alpino/Mottarone costs €7/10.
