Sartoria Ciclistica with the sponsorship of the Municipality of Cernobbio propose the Laghée Gravel Epic, three days to thrill you, with a unique location for start and finish, the former galloping ground of Villa Erba, in Cernobbio.
Once this green space with entrance to the Lake was used to let the horses warm up before the events, for this occasion it will be used as "base camp", in fact it will be possible to find Sponsor stands, selected Foodtrucks, craft beer and of course the immanciabile Sartoria Van to be able to stock up on coffee!
Three routes to choose from, "Border Route" 45 km, "Val d'Intelvi Haute Route" 85 km and the epic "Laghée Heroes" of 125 km that will be ridden on Saturday, July 23 while on Sunday, July 24 there will be a Gravel social ride, Lake to Lake, of about 50 km open to all, of all levels.
The base camp will be the reference for the whole event, it will be possible to relax on the lawn, enjoy the sun and a beer or take a refreshing swim in the lake. All in the spirit of giving a wonderful weekend in a magnificent place under the banner of sport and fun.
