Terrain: Cycling on tarmac, promenades and sometimes on gravel roads. In the city centres of Locarno or Ascona the cycle paths lead through pedestrian areas therefore pushing the bicycle might be necessary here in some busier areas. There are some small hills each day but these should be no obstacle even for less active cyclists. An easy tour, even for beginners.
