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.
The last monument of the season, a short Granfondo with a competitive race at the front. Lombardia is the perfect season ender on a beautiful route.
