The beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest

Ciclo Club Eroica members identify with the fundamental values indicated in the introduction and are committed to respect and promote these values.

1) Cycling is the beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest!

2) The heroic cyclist seeks to know the history, soul, mechanics and legends of the sport. We love every kind of cycling and the use of the bike in all its forms.

3) We, heroic cyclists, greet other cyclists, respect all users and the rules of the road. We try to facilitate other road users and to be civil and polite. We do not litter, and we participate in anti-litter campaigns.

4) We see our bikes as a means to a healthy lifestyle and to wellbeing, both alone and in the company of others. We are against all forms of doping and exaggerated training regimes. When we follow a champion, we love those who are capable of being protagonists all year round and for an entire generation.

5) We check to see if other cyclists are in difficulty and stop to give a hand. When conditions allow, we look around, liberating our minds and enjoying the landscape.

6) Heroic cyclists challenge themselves and respect cyclists who compete in a healthy way and are perhaps better athletes.

7) We think of the heroic cycling of the future, the kind of cycling that seeks values, the pleasure of adventure, discovery, the unexpected, the journey.

8) We think that the world looks better from the saddle of a bike. When we can, we work to ensure that institutions are attentive to promoting the intelligent and safe use of the bicycle. We try to help children and young people to get involved in cycling and we support their activities.

9) However, we seek to separate and combat those who manage cycling, and any sport, purely for business, because we know that cycling cannot be organised nor practiced without passion and heart.

10) Our bicycles are a way of life, enriching us both physically and culturally. Cycling is an opportunity to share experiences with others that contributes to improving our own personal health, that of our community and of the planet.

We cannot miss L’Eroica, because it is our festival and our chance to celebrate with all those who share and comprehend our deep feelings.
