L'Eroica bike race held in Gaiole in Chianti in Tuscany every first Sunday of October is something really traditional and truly unique. Imagine to cycle on gravel roads (the so called “strade bianche”) with a vintage bike coming from the eighties, with an appropriate suit coming directly from those years and wonderful landscapes of Sienese Chianti, the Valdarbia, the Crete Senesi and the Val d'Orcia all around. The name literally means “the heroic”, and that's precisely how it feels: no support cars and gravel dirty roads that might ruin the bikes.
