Arvigo - Selma- Bodio - Cauco - Stabbio - Arvigo
From Arvigo, bike along the river, going up the valley. The long ascent begins after you pass the picturesque little village of Cauco. The road to Stabbio is closed to vehicular traffic, which enhances your biking experience. A small chair-lift connects the valley to the village of Braggio-Stabbio, which lies on a terrace and has gorgeous views of the valley, Val Calanca. The narrow and technically challenging descent to the starting point, Arvigo, begins below the railway station.
