Unique to the cycling calendar, the Granfondo Milan San Remo is the oldest major cycling sportive and the only monument not run over the same weekend as the pro race. The 300km route needs more daylight hours so the event takes place in June, a perfect time of year for a long ride ending on the coast.
Join us for a 3 night break. We stay on Friday night in San Remo and get a warm up ride in over the last couple of climbs so you know what to expect on Sunday when your legs are tired. On Saturday afternoon, we drive up to Milan to collect entries and have an early meal before the Granfondo and then we stay back in San Remo after the ride.
Our support team includes pro level mechanics and expert ride leaders. We do a warm up ride over the Cipressa & Poggio on Saturday morning and have private feed stops on the Granfondo so all you need to think about is the riding.
A pure Italian Granfondo. Ride the Milan San Remo in it's 50th year and follow the same route as the pros. A unique cycling challenge due to it's length (302km!!) and classic climbs right at the end.
We stay Friday night in San Remo and enjoy two warm up rides around the area - a short spin on Friday afternoon along the coast and a 50km ride on Saturday morning reconning the Cipressa and Poggio before heading up to Milan.
The longest of the five sportive Monuments, Granfondo Milan San Remo is 302km finishing with the classic climbs of the Cipressa & Pogio. Join us for 2 nights in San Remo & a night in Milan with full support from our expert team.

Departure day. We head back to the airport at 9am, please book flights that depart at 12pm or later.
Our base in San Remo for the Granfondo Milan San Remo weekend is the lovely Hotel Lolli Palace. Situated right on the main promenade and overlooking the ocean, we love the friendly staff and having a beer on the roof terrace after a monster ride!
We have a range of carbon bikes with disc brakes & Ultegra groupset available for the weekend for £139
The route is identical to the pro race with the exception of a start just out of Milan to avoid the traffic and a slightly different finish location in San Remo. The first 120km is relatively flat before one major climb. As we get closer to San Remo the route gets lumpy with the classic climbs of the race backloaded.
