The beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest

Let yourself be surprised by the wild and breathtaking scenery of the Gran Sasso National Park, in Abruzzo, the largest naturalistic area in Europe and the true green heart of the Mediterranean. Nova Eroica Gran Sasso is the new and unprecedented all-road event in the heart of the Italian Apennines, with routes that wind through valleys and plateaus, on the ancient "tratturi" the dirt roads used since ancient times for the transhumance of flocks. A unique opportunity to discover an area rich in nature and history on your modern bike and in the name of adventure, in pure Eroica style.
