Bikes of Italy

Italy is an amazing place; food and fashion, architecture and furniture, living la dolce vita feels like par for course. If you’ve ever been, there’s the casual reminder of thousands of years of history at every turn and when not looking at ridiculous stone villas, some of the most beautiful scenery you’ll ever see. There’s a good reason BG Travel returns to the Dolomites every year.

Design is diverse, for every Armani there is a Versace, every Ferrari a Lamborghini, the bike world is no different. Cipollini’s flamboyance is the antithesis of the understated tech of 3T and Pinarello’s gentle curves. One thing they all have in common is a sense of romance and passion. Quality is a given, panache is assured.

From the storied heroics of Fausto Coppi at the Giro d’Italia to Milano-San Remo, the longest Classic of the season and of course il Pirata himself, Marco Pantani, Italy and cycling go hand in hand.

We stock Cipollini, Pinarello and 3T because they all dance to the beat of their own drum and while it may be a cliché, there is still nothing like the feeling an Italian beauty gives you; an intangible X-factor that every single bike manufacturer can only dream of possessing.
