If you’re a fan of all things Colnago or you’re lucky enough to own a Colnago bike, you’ll be interested in the Colnago Owners’ Day. It’s being held in conjunction with Le Col at Chavenage House near Tetbury in the Cotswolds on September 30.
With a heritage going back to 1953 and a host of famous names riding Colangos, from Eddy Merckx and the all-conquering Mapei team of the 1990s right through to the modern day UAE-Emirates and Wiggle-High5, Colnago is one of the most renowned names in pro cycling.

The Colnago Owners’ Day event includes a 40 mile sportive ride through the southern Cotswolds, followed by a champagne lunch on the lawn at the venue. It’s not necessary to ride a Colnago to take part, Colnago saying that all you need is a passion for performance and a love of cycling.
Of course, there’ll be plenty of Colnagos old and new on display, including collector’s items from around the world. Also on display will be the Rouleur gallery of classic Colnagos. And you’ll be able to admire Colnago’s recently launched V2-R aero machine and take one for a test ride around Chavenage House’s grounds.
Cost for the Colnago Owners’ Day event is £150 per person and you can sign up here. The price includes entry to the sportive, lunch, a test ride on the V2-R and a black limited edition Colnago x Le Col Pro jersey, complete with Colnago’s Ace of Spades logo.
You’ll also receive a complimentary copy of Rouleur magazine at the event and a further three issues by post.
