Enter the Florence Bike Festival , the festival that brings the whole city on the pedals, underway until Sunday, April 14 with its headquarters at the Parco delle Cascine. For the whole weekend piazzale Vittorio Veneto will be the "bike house", the scene of spectacular bike rides, performances, dj sets, mini courses on two wheels for children, but also an exhibition space where you can find all the most curious accessories, the most rare parts and the latest innovative bike models, including those with pedal assistance.

"Tuscany is making concrete actions to make bike a privileged vehicle for mobility, an aggregation tool and a tourist asset: today - declared the regional Councilor for Infrastructures and Mobility Vincenzo Ceccarelli - cycling tourism is worth 8 billion euros in Italy. In 2015 we set ourselves the goal of doubling the km of cycle paths: they were 500, we will reach well over 1000 km . Among the interventions already financed the Ciclovia dell'Arno, 400 km from Chiusi in Marina di Pisa, the Tirrenica, 1200 km from Ventimiglia in Rome, for which the Ministry has already allocated 15 million euros, of which 5 have already been allocated, the Ciclopolitana del Sole Verona-Florence, the Ciclopolitana Firenze-Prato ".

"There are legislative instruments - continued Ceccarelli during the opening of the Festival - and in the next few days the new competition for the bike-train bonus will also be issued, with which we will deliver a voucher worth up to 150 euros to buy a folding bike , to those who have an annual subscription or at least three months ”.

Saturday April 13th the FBF Village at the Cascine will be open from 10am to 6pm for enthusiasts and curious people of all ages. At 3.00 pm appointment with the adrenaline for the Florentine stage of the Electric Bike Cross Championship , which will play the second race of the championship in Florence. The EBX circuit will be available to athletes and enthusiasts who want to experience the innovative track and ebike tests both on Friday 12th and Sunday 14th.

At 4.30 pm , with a completely different rhythm, the Spring Ride organized by FIAB Florence will start, a group bike ride starting from Piazzale Vittorio Veneto and arriving at the Coop in Viale Talenti, for a refreshment with friends. On the way back the ride will take the form of the "Lentissima" , a race for those who arrive last, designed to raise awareness among cyclists and motorists on the risks of high speed. At 5 pm , instead, the party will be at the De Rosa truck, title sponsor of the Granfondo Firenze, for a moment dedicated to the whole community of lovers of bicycles with the heart, true jewels of Made in Italy. The details of the event are top secret, but it will be fun.

All ready to take to the track, then, on Sunday April 14th for the seventh edition of the De Rosa Granfondo Firenze , race in two courses from 95 to 131 km, up and down the mountains of Mugello, which every year attracts thousands of fans from all over Italy and across the border. Departure at 8.30 from Piazzale Michelangelo, finish line on the ascent of Via Salviati, made famous by the World Cycling Championships (first arrivals around 11 am), pasta party and prize giving at the Parco delle Cascine (starting at lunch time). Even the riders will carry with them a message on the subject of road safety: the official Granfondo jersey this year has in fact printed the symbol of the minimum distance of respect for cyclists to keep in the road.

The event is sponsored by the Municipality of Florence, the Metropolitan City and the Tuscany Region and counts on the media partnership of Radio Deejay for the De Rosa Granfondo Firenze.
