EVERYONE IN BELLAGIO FOR A WEEKEND IN THE SADDLE WITH SILVIO MARTINELLO,
GOLD MEDAL WINNER AT THE 1996 ATLANTA OLYMPIC GAMES
ASD Comolagobike, in collaboration with international shrine, the Madonna del Ghisallo Cycling Museum, and in close cooperation with local hotel owners led by Bellagio’s Hotel Perlo-Panorama, is organizing the perfect two-wheel weekend to enjoy the glowing autumn colors reflected in Lake Como waters in the company of Silvio Martinello, gold medal winner at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and current cycling opinion-leader for Italy’s RAI television network. Three days of peace and riding from Friday October 19th to Sunday the 21st can be wisely invested in your health and prowess on the renowned Lake Como climbs, the history-making peaks of the Giro d’Italia and the Giro di Lombardia that are just waiting for you to unlock their secrets and conquer their obstinacy in the best of company.
The weekend also offers the chance to check the quality of your physical training and riding posture with Claudio Cucinotta, a member of the Italian Cycling Federation’s medical staff.
For escorts or friends less inclined to pedaling, the weekend offers ample free time to wander through Borgo di Bellagio’s winding alleys and charming stores stocked with local handicraft and Milano fashion, stroll through Villa Melzi’s lovely gardens, and dance the night away for three intensely memorable days with plenty of room for the pleasures of the palate as well at wine samplings and candlelit dinners.
With the promise of strong synergy in store, Silvio and other surprise guests will be ready and waiting to welcome you!
