Fans of the Eroica cycling event will gather in San Giovanni Valdarno for the Ninth Edition of the Marzocchina, scheduled for September 11 and 12. It's an opportunity to ride vintage bicycles and is a healthy day spent with friends, sports and beautiful landscapes.
Participants will cross villages and walk kilometers of dirt roads that are closed to traffic, all while immersed in the countryside. There are two courses "La Classica" and "La Corta", enabling participation even for those with less experience. A section of the route also takes in the historic mining area of Cavriglia.
To promote the history and culture of the Valdarno area, during the weekend there will be a series of “two-wheel” themed events, such as the Vintage Market and the Photographic Exhibition, as well as guided tours of the city's museums.
There will also be unmissable great food during the event, with refreshment points set up along the route to allow competitors to taste typical local dishes accompanied with the excellent wine of the Aretini Hills. At the end of the competition, a delicious Sangiovannese stew awaits them.
