Eroica

From 2013-10-7 To 2013-10-7 in Montalcino

The course of "L' Eroica" winds through some of the most beautiful roads of the Chianti, Valdarbia and Valdorcia, some of them still on unpaved surfaces ("strade bianche") which make possible to relive the atmosphere of "heroic" times of cycling.

L'Eroica : cyclotouristic rally held mainly on gravel roadsWhat is L'Eroica
"L'EROICA" is a period cyclotouristic rally held mainly on gravel roads, organized since 1997. It is a special "race" from every point of view. It proposes surroundings and scenes from the "heroic" times of cycling: dust or mud, no organized service, vintage refreshments, wonderful and demanding roads, great ability to adapt and to suffer.
We search for the authentic roots of the awesome popularity of that cycling world made by the giants of the roads, which created so much literary legends.

ORGANIZATION
The event is organized in collaboration with the Cycling League of the UISP Siena.
Cycloamateurs and cyclotourists of both genders wishing to partecipate must have a valid racing licence released by the UISP, the FCI or any other Italian sports federation.
L'Eroica : cyclotouristic rally held mainly on gravel roadsForeign licenses are gladly accepted. Riders not holding a licence are accepted but they have to sign in for a one-day licence/insurance at the cost of three Euros. There is no need for a medical clearance.
