Isacco Colombo

Passionate about cycling, Isacco Colombo rides more than 6,000 miles every year for training, racing, mobility, and fun. He discovered cycling as a child and participated in his first BMX races as a young boy. He has been touring and racing on road bikes since his mid-teens and has also participated in intensive mountainbike and Cyclocross racing.

Isacco has been with Ciclismo Classico since 2007 and loves meeting new people and sharing his passion with Ciclismo travelers. His goal is for all his guests to return home with improved riding skills and a new – or renewed – love of cycling.

In his parallel life, Isacco is a freelance musician specializing in medieval and Renaissance music. A graduate of the music conservatories in Piacenza, Italy, and Basel, Switzerland, he performs throughout Europe and in the United States with several bands and collaborates with chamber ensembles, choirs, orchestras, dance groups, and theater, including a Minnesota-based vocal ensemble. When the spirit moves him, Isacco has also been known to pull out his instruments and play for guests on his tours.

Born and raised in Legnano near Milan, Isacco lives with his cat, Elvira, in his hometown, in a house that used to belong to his great-grandfather, next door to his parents’, sister’s, and uncle’s houses. In his free time, he enjoys cooking and – what else? – cycling.

In His Own Words

“Traveling by bicycle is the best way to discover the world.”

“My favorite places to cycle are Sardinia and Tuscany on the L’Eroica roads. Among Ciclismo tours, my favorite is Friuli & Slovenia.”

“Charming, witty, wise, and talented, Isacco is a true Renaissance man.”
