    Description

    The Monte San Giorgio is perched between Lake Lugano and Mendrisio and is listed as a Unesco World Heritage site. It is accessible to mountain bikers, climbing from the south side and descending on single tracks down the steep eastern flank.

    From Mendrisio, choose either the small road or the car-free forest road to Meride. A snappy portion of the ascent begins at the Church of San Silvestro. From here, a steep and rugged alpine road leads up to Cassina and past Forello to the summit of Monte San Giorgio. From the summit, there are wonderful views of the Lugano region and Mendrisiotto. Now comes the descent, which leads along the ridge, then turns left down Monte San Giorgio›s steep eastern slopes. This is a difficult descent that should only be attempted by experienced mountain bikers. Passing the Albio pasture, continue down through the forest. The descent ends right at the outskirts of Riva San Vitale. The tour then joins the road towards Mendrisio for a while, later following the Laveggio and Morea streams to the centre of Mendrisio village.
