LEONARDO'S NAVIGLI - one day tour

ONE DAY TOUR along the canals and quiet roads

LEONARDO'S NAVIGLI - one day tour

Discover the surprisingly rural outskirts South-West of Milan on this 6-hour bike loop tour. Riding along Naviglio Grande (‘the Big Canal’) on peaceful tiny countryside roads, passing by farmhouses and nice little hamlets.
Accompanied by a guide, you will stop in Abbiategrasso for a break and at the ancient Morimondo Abbey, or at Caremma country house where you can taste traditional cakes and homemade ice cream.
Complimentary water bottle and energy bars will be provided.

Small groups limited to a maximum of 8 people. Four people at least.
Advanced athletic performance is not required, just familiarity with the saddle.
We can supply you with BIKE RENTAL SERVICE, Cinelli road racing or Bianchi hybrid bikes (into the shop Rossignoli Cycle).

A different day, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, always at a ‘contemplative and conversational’ pace.

Meeting time is 10 am. The starting point is the historical bicycle shop Rossignoli, located in downtown Milan, where it is also possible to rent a racing or touring bicycle for the day. If you don’t have your own, please come 15-20 minutes before departure time for the bike fitting.

From there your guide will lead you – through parks and cycle lanes – to the ‘towpath’ of Naviglio Grande, then on to small country roads that you will follow at a leisurely pace (around 20 km/h) among cultivated fields, farmhouses and irrigation channels. Stop for a break in the village of Abbiategrasso, then proceed to the ancient Morimondo Abbey, a former Cistercian monastery founded in 1134, where you can taste traditional cakes and homemade ice cream (at your own expenses).
You will then return to downtown Milan along a different route and be back at the same meeting point around 4 pm (itinerary may vary depending on the level of fitness of the participants - usually we ride between 50 and 75 km).
