la carrareccia & covid-19
riding together safely
"INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS OF LA CARRARECCIA, WELCOME BACK TO BOLSENA!
ON SEPTEMBER 6th, YOU CAN RIDE BACK IN TIME, WITH LOTS OF FRIENDS, ALL OF US LOVERS OF CYCLING LIKE YOU!
We will be there and we want to celebrate WITH YOU the 10the anniversay edition of LA CARRARECCIA.
Since 2011 we have met in Bolsena with our vintage bikes and clothing to remember the glory days of cycling and to celebrate a timeless sport that creates lasting friendships.
Covid 19 has left deep marks in our society, has changed our habits, has created physical and social distances. Cycling has also suffered, for months it has been difficult and even impossible to pedal through the streets of our beautiful Italy, there have been no sporting competitions, there have been no events.
Then, slowly, we got back on our bikes, the modern ones and also the old ones, and we started moving again, and we met again on the streets and in the squares.
We waited a long time before deciding to confirm LA CARRARECCIA for 6th September 2020. We will face new organizational problems, we will have to deal with the limits and with the prudence that is necessary in an event like this, but we know that we can count on the local communities and on the Municipality of Bolsena that supports our initiative.
It will be a cycling festival, within the rules currently imposed by the authorities, but it will certainly be a party.
And for the tenth edition of LA CARRARECCIA we restart from where it all began: vintage bikes completing a circuit around our beautiful lake, the largest volcanic lake in Europe. With its beautiful landscapes, with its stretches of dirt road, with its climbs and its fast descents this is an unforgettable experience.
It will also be an opportunity for all of us to celebrate a great friend of ours, a great champion: LIVIO TRAPE ', who won a gold and a silver medal at the Rome Olympics sixty years ago. He will ride with us wearing his historic and wonderful jersey with the five Olympic circles.
We will have to limit the number of registrations to no more than 250, we will have only one route and one refreshment point, the one overlooking the lake, we will ask for a minimum contribution from particpants, no more than 5 euros. We will involve the local community and businesses in making your stay at Lake Bolsena extra special.
We do not ask to pay now, you will complete registration on the day in Bolsena, we ask you to complete a pre-registration form now to reserve your place.
We hope to see you all in September"
