In September 2019 we are undertaking another epic bike ride. We have decided to ride the same route of the 1955 Mille Miglia ( 1000 miles) in Italy. The Mille Miglia is an iconic endurance road race  which was established in 1927 and ran 24 times to 1957.  The 1955 race was won by Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson at an average speed of over 100 mph!  We start and finish in Breschia, and cycle through Rome, Florence, and Bologna. See the full route below.
