Milano Bike Renting is a new bike rental company, born from a Doctor and his Son's passion for cycling.
We think Milan and Lombardy have so many possibilities to offer to cyclist.
First of all, Milan is home to some of the world's most famous bike factories. Brands like Legnano, Cinelli, Colnago, Masi and Bianchi (the oldest known bike factory in the world) were all Milan based.
Moreover Milan is located in the center of the Lombardy region with it's range of cycling routes and itineraries. From flat roads in the South to the highest European passes like Passo Stelvio, Passo Gavia and Passo del Mortirolo where the epic pages of cyclism were once wrote.
Explore the “Italian “Lake District”. Lago Maggiore, Lago di Como, Lago d’Iseo and Lago di Garda are all located in this region with endless itineraries and possibilities to discover on two wheels.
Close to Piemonte, some of the world's most famous wines are produced (Barolo, Barbera, Dolcetto) on smooth hills ideal for cycling, even in late Autumn.
If you prefer the sea, in only two hours it is possible to reach Liguria, on Mediterranean coast, where winter is usually temperate, and cycling is a pleasure even deep in winter!
With this incredible background, it seemed impossible to us that Milan didn't yet have a bike company, so we decided to create one, and to offer everyone the possibility to “taste” Italy by bike.
From the Alps to Sicily, Italy is a treasure-trove of biodiversity, boasting an immense assortment of climates, ecosystems and landscapes. Its geography makes it a bridge between north and south, east and west, and the peninsula is a busy natural thoroughfare crossed with scattered pockets of isolation.
Italy’s cuisine and Mediterranean diet are the culmination of this biological and cultural diversity.
On this basis we can offer you different options, from single day tours, weekend tours, or holiday weeks in some of our favourite places; Varenna (Como lake), Bormio (Valtellina at the feet of Stelvio and Gavia pass), Celle Ligure (Liguria, Mediterranean sea) and obviously Milan!
Our aim is to provide our customers with the best Italian bike experience, based mainly on a deep knowledge of our territory developed in almost thirty years of road cycling both in the Gran Fondo race and cycle tourism.
Cycling, avoiding congested roads, and discovering the food and wine heritage that makes Italy one of the most popular destinations for tourists all over the world, is our passion. As the Expo 2015 logo says, Italy is “ ..a place to be!”
