LINGUA  

Welcome from  GIANCARLO BROCCI

Our venture began in 1997 because we love cycling, but the idea has deeper roots. We admire the values of a bygone cycling era, which we want people to learn about. It's a cycling era that has inspired lots of Italian literature, culture and music and that has also marked some Italian history.
We want to spread the rootes and values of an extraordinary sport with a popular soul to re-discover the Beauty of Fatigue and the Thrill of the Conquest.



Our 20th EDITION


L'Eroica of Gaiole in Chianti will take place on Sunday 2 October 2016.
It will be the 20th edition of the event!
We are working to make this next L'Eroica as memorable as ever.
We wait for you on the Strade Bianche of Tuscany.
