The region north of the Ticino's capital, Bellinzona, where the Moesa River and the Ticino River unite, can be explored by mountain bike in the most delightful and leisurely way. Here the north-south traffic speeds by, without appreciation of the scenery. But as is often the case, the true beauty of the landscape reveals itself when one takes a close look.
This charming tour through the forests of hilly Malcantone takes you on narrow mountain roads and chestnut forest trails. Actually, writers, painters and actors are mostly attracted by this sparsely populated region in the hinterland of the city of Lugano.
