Maximum altitude: 310 m Paths: 100% - 90% asphalt and 10% dirt Water along the route YES - various equipped rest areas We leave the car in the parking lot in front of the fire station, the starting point of the cycle path called "Sentiero Valtellina". We walk along the little road that runs along the right side of the barracks, looking at it from the front, and we pass under the ring road, taking us to the bank of the river Adda. We ride in the direction of Tirano, after a few meters we arrive at the first pedestrian and cycle bridge, we cross it and we carry ourselves on the other bank of the Adda, near the town of Albosaggia. The bike path is well signposted and runs alongside the river which remains on our right. We continue on the plain pedaling quickly, we cross the bridge over the Cervio stream and on the cycle path we arrive at Selvetta where we cross the bridge over the Adda. We turn left, passing next to a small tower, and continue straight ahead. Shortly before reaching the bridge that leads to Sirta we turn right and continue straight until the level crossing where we turn left. We continue parallel to the railway line, we pass the station of Ardenno - Masino, and reached the last house, where the asphalt ends, we turn to the left and then immediately to the right. The bottom is dirt, compact and covered with gravel, it can also be used for racing bikes. A series of bridges allows us to cross the canals, then we pass under the SS38 and we arrive at the beginning of the dirt path that leads to Desco (930 meters long). This stretch of trail is not suitable for racing bikes and therefore you either push or you are forced to ride on the SS38 in the direction of Morbegno. We start pedaling uphill, keeping the Adda on our left and slowly gaining altitude. We pass over the new tunnel and arrive at Desco (290 m) where we take the asphalt again. We start downhill quickly reaching Paniga where we turn left, just before the cemetery, taking the cycle path back.
