2024 Gran Fondo Milan-Sanremo with Sportive Breaks

Milan-Sanremo takes place in March, and is the first of the 5 Monuments of Cycling. It is the longest one day event of the entire Pro calendar. The Granfondo MILAN – SAN REMO cicloturista in June covers the same route as the famous Spring Classic. This is the longest one day amateur road cycling event in the world, with a distance of approximately 298km from the outskirts of Milan, crossing the Lombardy and Piedmont Plains, proceeding to the ascent of the Turchino and arriving finally at the Ligurian Riviera.

Logistics are tricky as the start and the finish are so far apart, but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered! This is your opportunity to ride the route of the longest one day event on the UCI calendar. Stay 2 nights in Milan and 1 night in Sanremo. Airport transfers are from Milan Malpensa Airport on arrival, and to Nice Airport on departure.

On race day, we offer private feed stations plus transport of your luggage to Sanremo.

What about my bike?

You can bring your own bike as we provide the facilities to transport bike boxes on our airport transfers. Alternatively, you can rent a bike with us for the weekend. Our mechanic will be available this afternoon at the hotel to assist you with fitting your rental bike or building your own bike after travel. Bikes can be safely stored at the hotel.

Our Hotel

Our hotel is located minutes away from the start of the Gran Fondo. The hotel is booked on a Half Board basis, with breakfasts and evening meals included. Late afternoon and early evening, our tour leaders and bike mechanics are available for you. We will have an evening meal together at the hotel.

Our first hotel in Milan is the Ibis Styles and is located near the start line in Settala. Our second hotel is the Una Hotel The One Milano, located only a 15 minute drive to the start. Our staff will drive you between the hotel and the start on Saturday if you wish to join the warm up ride and for the start of the race on Sunday.

After breakfast and any final bike adjustments, we will take you on a supported, guided ride. A short coffee spin has been organised to keep your legs moving, but nothing too strenuous the day before the sportive.

This evening our bike guides will do a race briefing to run through GF Milan-Sanremo race day logistics and the route. We will have an evening meal together at the hotel.

The Gran Fondo Milan-Sanremo cicloturista covers the 300km that separate Milan from Sanremo, retracing the same roads as the Spring Classicissima. There are a couple of slight differences at the start and the finish. The starting point has been changed from the Castello Sforzesco in Milan to the south of the city, in Pieve Emanuele in order to avoid the traffic of the Lombardy capital, and the arrival is in Lungomare Salvo d’Acquisto in San Remo rather than on the Corsa Roma. The rest of the route is absolutely faithful to that followed by the professionals.

The Granfondo Milan-Sanremo cicloturista follows the same routes of the Classicissima of the centennial, with the legendary climbs of Turchino, Cipressa, and Poggio that have given this event its mythical status.

  • PASSO DEL TURCHINO – 3.2km, 373m of climbing with an average gradient of 1.4% and a max gradient of 6%
  • CAPO MELE – 2.5km, 104m of climbing with an average gradient of 5.2% and a max gradient of 6%
  • CAPO CERVO – 2.5km, 110m of climbing with an average gradient of 4.1% and a max gradient of 5%
  • CAPO BERTA – 3km, 128m of climbing with an average gradient of 4.3% and a max gradient of 8%
  • CIPRESSA – 5.6km, 226m of climbing with an average gradient of 4.1% and a max gradient of 7%
  • POGGIO DI SANREMO – 3.7km, 137m of climbing with an average gradient of 3.5% and a max gradient of 6%

Today is the day! We have an early start this morning. Early breakfasts are arranged in the hotel restaurant. Please have your luggage ready in reception as we will transport all your belongings to Sanremo whilst you ride.

Getting to the start

Our staff will be on hand this morning if you have any last-minute mechanical issues, and to give you directions to the start line.

Private feed stops and the finish

We offer private feed and support stations on the route, as you will be riding during lunch today. At the finish we will guide you over to our hotel in Sanremo.

Post-ride

In Sanremo you can have the post-ride pasta buffet. We are there to meet you and to guide you to the hotel. We’ll meet you for post-ride beers at the hotels from 17:00.
We will have an evening meal together at the hotel this evening, where you can share tales of your exploits. We’ll assist you with re-packing your bikes for travel tomorrow.
