Also the cuty's historic center and the banks of the river Lambro have cycling paths which offer beautiful views. But if you're feeling particularly fit no one forbids you to go further! Here are a couple of ideas!
The cycle track of the Villoresi Canal for example, crosses the Lombard countryside, stretching along the artificial 19th century irrigation Canal. But pay attention to the distances! The route is 85 kilometers long. It begins near the town of Somma Lombardo (near the river Ticino) and ends near Cassano d'Adda. At least be prepared, we recommend doing it in steps!
