The beauty of fatigue and the thrill of conquest

NOVA Eroica Family

"A child on a bicycle is a symbol of hope for the future. NOVA Eroica Family gathers a large group of young cyclists with their parents and some grandparents on the white roads around Piana. Because the bicycle has the power to make everyone feel like a child again."

NOVA Eroica Family is a special event designed for families: a cycling excursion on white roads that allows even the youngest to experience their own Eroica adventure. It's the perfect occasion to spend a day outdoors, immersed in nature, riding safely and having fun.

The Routes

Participants can choose between two picturesque routes:

  • Route of the “Valle dell’Ombrone” - 16 km
  • Route of the “Castles of Buonconvento” - 25 km

  • Snack: a refreshing snack along the way.
