L'Eroica - Gaiole in Chianti
The legendary “L’Eroica” race-a magical voyage with Chianti vineyards nestled in the legendary Tuscan countryside. The “L’Eroica” race travels some of the most picturesque roads in Sienese Chianti, Valdarbia and Val d’Orcia; but the highlights are the stretches of ancient gravel roads where you can feel again the atmosphere of the cycling’s historic era. You’ll find yourself on a mythic journey, surrounded by vintage racing bikes cleaned up for the occasion, and their riders wearing well-worn and colourful antique wool jerseys. They are the cycling enthusiasts from all over the globe; many who love working on their old bikes, polishing their gear and cycling together without competing to simply enjoy the ride through the beautiful Sienese landscape.
