2) Upcycle Milano bike café

Italy’s first self-proclaimed ‘Cafe Bistrot’. We don’t know whether this is true. You can spend an afternoon studying or working here, and in the evening, you can often enjoy live music. Don’t worry about the huge portion sizes, you can burn off the calories by biking home.

They have been making their own bicycles here for over 100 years, fixing them in the workshop, and selling them, along with those of famous brands.

Like Pietro, who recently earned the title of ‘Best salesman in Milan’.

5) La Ciclistica Milano

Two friends came up with the idea of this project when it became fashionable again to ride a bike: bike lanes were opened and bikes and co-ops were in high demand. Their handmade collection of made in Italy models was recently added to the range. The bikes are beautiful, solid and affordable, and come with an unlimited warranty.
