Museo del Ciclismo Magreglio

Comments

This gem of a museum sits in a spectacular spot, adjacent to the chapel of the La Madonna del Ghisallo – patron saint of cycling – and 600 metres above Bellagio, offering spectacular views of Lake Como to the North and East. Together with the chapel it houses a collection of cycling memorabilia, fascinating for cycling enthusiasts and non-cyclists alike.

Museo Del Ciclismo: Description

On display one can find: bicycles from the late 19th century to the present time (everyday, military and racing); many of which were ridden by cycling legends such as Coppi and Merckx, together with their jerseys, and biographies of 48 of history's greatest cycling names, historical photographs and much more besides.

The museum is run by a small, dedicated and friendly team who did not hesitate to keep the museum open for an extra half an hour when we arrived late by bicycle on Sunday evening (the museum being closed on Monday). Why come by bike? It’s a beautiful and traditional ride (only for fit cyclists or those with low gearing), a pilgrimage for enthusiasts, and the reward is a discount at the museum! Tip for cyclists: free locks are available for all cyclists visiting the museum.
