Lamporecchio-land of cycling

Cycling

Lamporecchio is a land of cycling, you can feel it everywhere. The historic enterprises of three famous athletes such as Andrea Tafi, Giovanni Visconti and, recently, Vincenzo Nibali are all linked to Lamporecchio and its surroundings, to the passion that for years has connected cycling to these territories.

Teams of professional riders or simple enthusiasts choose constantly the slopes and hairpin turns of this area, especially of San Baronto, as destination of trails and races: the World Cycling Championship 2013 passed here, and it was an historic event for the lovers of this sport that has stopped off in many Tuscan cities and, in particular, in the Valdinievole valley.
