One of the most renowned and popular cycling destinations for fans of the "specialissima" is Mottarone, either because the Giro d'Italia has passed through it several times or because it is the ideal climb with its rugged, but never prohibitive, gradients and increasingly rewarding surroundings as we climb.
Two roads lead to the summit of Mottarone: the private Borromean road up from Lake Maggiore and the Due Riviere SP 39 up from Lake Orta, and it is this one that we are going to propose.
The starting place is the Orta San Giulio Railway Station in the hamlet of Legro (the famous painted village), which offers both the possibility of getting there by train and ample parking.

In the attached: the complete description of the route, map and GPX track.
