Como, Italy

HC Bike Tours, Sarto Antonio and Sartoria Ciclistica café in Como have just agreed a new collaboration. Sarto Antonia Cycles already began collaborating with HC Bike Tours in 2017, providing tour guests with Veneto SL bikes for rent, handmade in their Sarto factory in Padova (Italy). Taking into account our guests’ excellent reviews of the Sarto bikes and bike tour services we provide, we are thrilled to take the next step by opening a HC Bike Tours / Sarto bike rental in Como (Italy). Moreover, our new bike rental will be based in the fantastic cyclist-oriented Sartoria Ciclistica café in the historic district of Como (Italy).

All our 2018 rental bikes have the most comfortable design, recommended by HC Bike Tours: Sarto Veneto SL models equipped with Campagnolo mechanical Potenza or electronic Chorus EPS groupsets. Veneto SL bikes are ideal for the Gran Fondo races where the climbs dominate; powerful, secure and reliable.

In addition to bike rental in Como, we now also offer a rental bike delivery service to any location in the Alps (Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria), plus Private Ride Leaders or SAG support for rides from Como and other places in the Alps, as well as shuttle services to/from Bergamo and Milan airports.

HC Bike Tours cycling tours are open for bookings. We focus on custom and private tours anywhere in Europe, but we also offer tours which are open to the general public and available to individual travellers. One very special tour is the Sarto Experience. This tour is about much more than just the challenge of riding the famous climbs; it’s also about exploring Italian history and culture, seeing how Sarto’s custom bikes are made, and experiencing the Tour of Lombardy race − by seeing it LIVE and riding the Il Lombardia Gran Fondo the next day.

Aigars Paegle, the owner of HC Bike Tours, says, “We are very excited to expand our business by opening our first permanent Sarto Bike Rental in partnership with Sartoria Ciclitica café in Como, Italy. Great coffee and healthy food is something that every cyclist dreams about and now our dream is becoming reality. I would like to thank Sarto Antonio for the partnership we started last year. The superior Italian craftsmanship of Sarto Antonio Bicycles is something our guests simply deserve.

This collaboration between all three partners is a logical and very significant milestone for our company. We have significantly increased the number of Sarto rental bikes in our fleet, and now, we offer Sarto bikes for rent not only in the Como area, but anywhere in the Alps.”

Enrico Sarto, the owner of Sarto Antonio, says, ”We are pleased to have a partner like HC Bike Tours. We have common ideas and the same spirit. Attention to detail and customer service are just some of the distinctive features that characterize us. We are really happy that HC Bike Tours has chosen our bikes to offer to their guests and clients.”

Alessandro Tino, co-owner of Sartoria Ciclistica café, says, ”We are delighted about the new partnership with HC Bike Tours. Our bike café is dedicated to cycling and the partnership with HC Bike Tours is just

the next step. We are delighted to be able to expand the range of services that our café can provide to our clients”.
