CHALLENGE 

A lot of discussions and investigations done on Alpe Cava. Is it paved or not? It turns out it is, although it does have a 1500-meter middle section on lousy concrete. Locals hardly know this climb, which makes it a bit of a hipster climb. The last 5 kilometers of the ride are lovely.

The small Ticinese valley is a truly scenic jewel blessed with an amazing architectural history.
