The Granfondo MILAN - SAN REMO cicloturistica: put yourself to the test in the Great Classic of amateur cycling!
Ride the same route as that followed by the great champions in the Spring Classic.
This is the longest amateur cycling event in the world, with a distance of about 302 km 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. From Genoa the route follows the coast of the Ligurian sea right to the finish line, which can only be conquered by venturing up the legendary climbs of the Cipressa and the Poggio of San Remo.
The MILAN - SAN REMO cicloturistica began in 1970 on the initiative of the Unione Cicloturistica Sanremo, and they have organized it ever since without a break, making it into the most famous cicloturistica event in Italy: in 2016 we will celebrate the 46th edition.
With respect to the actual professional race, the starting point is changed from the Duomo in Milan to Pieve Emanuele (in Milan), in order to avoid the traffic of the Lombardy capital, and the arrival is in Corso Garibaldi in San Remo, whereas the rest of the route is absolutely faithful to that followed by the professionals.
