Looks like a blast…
Someone in NYC needs to reboot the Big Apple Tweed Run…
Another one for the bucket list (for lack of a better expression).
“Emilio De Marchi” Historical Race
Conegliano, May 31st, 2015
The Alta Marca of the Province of Treviso has unique “Strade Bianche”, which are some of the most celebrated and historical “white roads”, set among some of the finest cycling sceneries in Italy. Find out why in this short movie introducing the Ciclostorica “Emilio De Marchi”: “This is My Land”, featuring local rider Marzio Bruseghin, a former Italian National Pro TT champion.
At the Ciclostorica “Emilio De Marchi”, you will enjoy stress-free pedalling with friends through the world-famous Prosecco vineyards, following in the wheel tracks of famous cycling champions of the past such as Ottavio Bottecchia and savouring fresh products of our beautiful land offered by the Altamarca Association.
The 2015 Ciclostorica “Emilio De Marchi” features a completely new route for 2015, including some of the most beautiful villages of the Altamarca area. The route will start from Conegliano and reach Pieve di Soligo, Follina, Cison di Valmarino, Vittorio Veneto, Refrontolo and Cappella Maggiore, home town to Emilio De Marchi, and will finally go back to Conegliano. Start and Finish will take place in front of the Emporio De Marchi retail shop.
Never heard of it, but the “Retro Ronde” also sounds like a great event. Here’s a video from 2013:
Beware the cobbles—after all, this is Vlaanderen 🙂
We see that only the longest route is rewarded with ocean views. Cheeky, that.
