L'Eroica - Tuscany

Gaiole in Chianti, Tuscany (Italy)

Organiser's Description

Blending nostalgia, picturesque surroundings, arduous terrain and delicious food, L'Eroica - the Heroic - is the Gran Fondo of choice for lovers of all things vintage. Entrants must use pre-1987 bikes with steel frames, leather shoes and toe clips, while kit must be in the spirit of yesteryear (wool not lycra). More a celebration than a race, there are four routes covering some of the most beautiful roads in Chianti, Valdarbia and Val d'Orcia. Each includes stretches of white dirt roads - the fabled Tuscan strade bianche. Spin-off events now take place in Britain, Spain, California and Japan. 4 distance options.
