A year of appointments for bike lovers in Florence

This is another special year for bike lovers in Tuscany. In fact two big appointments will take place from April 17 to 19 at Parco delle Cascine, the largest green area in town: the Florence Bike Festival and the Florence Gran Fondo - De Rosa. Both events are organized by Veloce Club Firenze in collaboration with Sicrea, encouraged by the number of visitors of the last edition, that has seen the participation of over 50.000 people during the 3 days of festival and of 2.160 cyclists at the Florence Gran Fondo – De Rosa.
