Milan - San Remo


  • The genuine Milan – San Remo Granfondo.
  • The longest amateur granfondo – 296km.
  • Same route as the pro race.
  • Veloventoux  official tour operators ensuring gold grid start numbers.
  • 4 star accommodation.
I really can't recommend Véloventoux highly enough. They are about 15km from the foot of Ventoux, so a great warm up, plus there are lots of other good routes from there round the mountain or along the Gorge de la Nesque etc. There are lots of places to eat around, I mean, it is France. But Vaison la Romaine is my favourite place to eat of an evening, and a stunning village to walk round.

The Granfondo Milan – San Remo follows the same route as the legendary spring classic but in early June where we have a much better chance of great weather.

It’s one of the longest amateur granfondos in the world starting from the outskirts of Milan, through Lombardy and Piedmont to arrive on the Ligurian riviera. From here the route follows the beautiful Mediterranean coastline before tackling the legendary Cipressa and Poggio climbs before the finish in San Remo.

events quick questions

Yes you do. In some cases your countries racing licence will do but you need to check with the organiser.

There are no time limits in The Ventoux Granfondos but if you are seriously slow getting round the broom waggon will pass you and you’ll no longer be part of the event and could miss the feed stations.

Yes but you don’t need to get involved.At the front the first finishers are often pro riders and to win one of these events is an impressive achievement.
There are prizes for the overall GC and then for each individual age group.

They are essential to the event especially on hot days for liquids. They can be a bit messy so that’s why we do a private stop for our guests and you can even supplement this with your own favourite race food.

Yes! especially at the start. Whilst most of the top riders usually get priority places near the front there will always be faster riders behind you trying to work their way up to the front so leave the left hand side of the road free for faster riders to come through.
Be careful on descents, don’t hog the road and let faster descenders through.
