We are at the end of a busy and successful 2018 year of guiding on Lake Como. This year our guests of all levels rode with our Cycling Manager and Tour de France Yellow Jersey wearer, Alberto Elli. We enjoyed watching them challenge themselves and gain confidence at all ages and experiences. Without a doubt, each guest returned from their ride with Alberto beaming with joy, complimenting not just his riding ability, but attention to each guest, professional guidance and technical skills, and the talent for making each guest discover more from themselves than they thought possible.
For 2019 we are excited to announce a new ComoLagoBike and Hotel Il Perlo initiative - exclusive trips with Alberto to some of his favorite destinations in Italy. Our new travel program is called ComoLagoBike PRO because it brings all the professional guiding services that you enjoy on Lake Como to even more exciting travel locations with itineraries personally designed by Alberto. These trips are organized and managed as only a former professional racer, Director Sportif, and wearer of the Yellow Jersey can.
