Tired of the city? Does cycling in traffic gets on your nerves? Think you’ve seen all of Milan? Think it’s all just concrete? Your only mode of transportation are your two wheels? Have you just bought a secondhand bike from the Sinigallia fair?
If you answered “yes” to at least three of these questions, grab your bike and spend half or a whole day and discover the cycling paths which unwind outside the city’s ring road.
Departing from Porta Genova, you’ll notice how the landscape reflected in the water changes. Symmetrical shadows of high rises make way for trees, arable land, quaint bridges, small churches, small village, fish restaurants, and dogs which take their masters for a walk.
In the 20km that divide Milan from Abbiategrasso, a calm pedaling will help you discover the pianura padana in it’s full glory: a facet of Milan reserved only for the bravest.
