Three friends and something more
Lake Como Motorbike was born from the love for Como of three good friends: Mauro, Valentina and Federica. Long before the creation of this project, two keywords have influenced their lives and decisions: simplicity and beauty. They understand and feel that in every part of the world, in every field of life, from art to food, design and literature, most often simplicity is synonymous with beauty.
So, they decided to share their resources and talents and create a new world class adventure which reflected their own loves and tastes. In this way, directing their sensitivity for all things of quality, simplicity and beauty, they have designed this holiday for you, the tourist and traveller who also recognises the good things in life and travel.
"Mauro, we could not be more grateful for the awesome day you showed us around your amazing lake! A day full of incredible sights, beautiful scenery, lovely riding conditions & great professional and friendly company. We will always remember our motorbike experience of the lake & will be back for another ride with you again soon!

The lake man
Mauro Migliavada is born and bred Como. He is 43 years old and got his first motorbike when he was 12 years old, starting a lifelong love affair with the freedom and closeness to nature that is offered by this style of travel.
His other passion is writing and, after a very successful career in journalism in which he used to be editor-in-chief for a local newspaper, he decided for a new way of lifewhere he could share his stories and knowledge for the lake area he loves with new friends. He knows the roads around Lake Como like the back of his hand and the ways of the life on the road like his own soul.
You could say it is his destiny to take to the bike and ride the roads as his name,Migliavada, literally means "to go or travel for miles". And so it is. Mauro will be your guide and your host and will make sure this is a first class experience that you will remember for a long time.
