Sunday, the 4th October in Gaiole in Chianti, will be Eroica race, a non competitive vintage bicycle ride in the white roads in Chianti, with options for rides ranging from 38 to 205 kilometers.
L'Eroica rules give four parameters : the frame must be manufactured no later than 1987, there must be shifters on the down tubes, the brake cables must come out of the top of the levers, and the bike must use toe clips.

According to a Euromobility poll,in Italy we are car-dependers confronting to other European countries.
In winter there is an increase in thetraffic congestion , with obvously problems for parking, for the environment and delays.
