Where I stayed
Hitel Garni Golf
At Via Cimitero (Google maps 46.360997,8.972096) we found a small but great bicycle shop that repaired the chain in no-time! Finally we were able to pick up the road, and decided to cross the highway 3km south of Biasca center to be sure to find the bicycle path.
And there it was
From there, we turned right and continued the bike path to Locarno, were we made a stop and took a swim in the wonderful Lago Maggiore! Bella Italia …Hmh Italian Switzerland!
After that, we continued the bike path to Ascona and arrived at our hotel - right next to the lake - at 4o'clock.
Day trip Summary: 4h30min ride, 62km, 358m climb
Tip: The "Seven" Bar at the old port of Ascona is a "must" in the summer. You can enjoyed a cold drink right at the waterfront. BUT BEWARE!!! Do NOT go to the adjacent "Seven Restaurant", prices are a rip-off and the food is tiny and lousy.
