Lake Como is one of our favourite places in the World to ride, with a lovely mix of climbs, lakeside routes and beautiful villages nestled into the hills. This sportive is the first big event in the area and comes on the same weekend as the Tour of Lombardy, making this the ultimate season ending weekend. The sportive starts and ends in Cantu with the legendary Ghisallo and the ridiculously steep Muro di Sormano as the two big climbs.

Friday 11th October

Arrive early to join us for a gentle 60km warm up spin with our great local guides. Today's ride goes along the lake with very little climbing.

Saturday 12th October

Pro race day! Your choice of where to watch. We run a day out from Como with a 50km ride ending on the Sormano where we watch the pro race and have a picnic. In the evening, we put on a night out by the Ghisallo with a local meal and private tour of the cycling museum. Highly recommended.

Sunday 13th October

Sportive day!

The classic Tour of Lombardy, the Race of the Falling Leaves, finally has a sportive to go with it. A new route for 2019 starting and ending in Cantu, the Granfondo takes in the iconic Ghisallo, the 20% plus Muro di Sermano and several other famous climbs of the pro race. Lake Como is the perfect place to end your season.

Only one route option, 107km with around 1,700m of climbing with the Ghisallo and Muro di Sormano as the feature climbs.

Not the longest sportive but with 2 categorised climbs it will be a challenging route. Expect stunning lake views at every turn.
