This end of season event has a unique atmosphere thanks to the sections of Tuscan dirt roads and because most of the riders use vintage bikes and wear old style wool clothing.
The route winds through stunning Tuscan countryside near Siena and the sections on the white roads or farm tracks takes you back to what it must have been like racing in the 40′s and 50′s. Going Vintage is a great way to savour the camaraderie of cycling
The charm of this event remains unchanged and every year it sees the participation of numerous people from all over the world.
In year 2013, 5,000 riders took part from all over the world. What matters for L’Eroica is the love for cycling and the rediscovery of roads that haven’t been violated by time and asphalt.
