We know coffee is integral to the culture of cycling. That’s why cafés are the heart and soul of our Clubhouses - a place for cyclists to immerse themselves in the sport. This is where you can catch up on the key races of the season, from the Spring Classics to the grand tours of the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and La Vuelta as well as some of the lesser-known fixtures. Every café is unique to its location, offering locally-sourced produce with menus reflecting the regional tastes. Our cafés are emporiums stuffed with historic posters and jerseys in frames and glass-topped tables displaying curated collections.
Milan - San Remo: Pasticceria Piccardo - Piazza Dante, 1946 - on an eight minute lead, il Campionissimo got off his bike, walked into the bar, ordered an espresso, drank, paid and left. He went on to win the stage with 14 minutes between him and his group. The commentator announced: “First, Fausto Coppi, while we wait for the second, we’re going to play some nice music.”
