Inspired by the Erioca event, which graces the rural strade bianche (white roads) of Tuscany, La Bicicletta is presenting this Giro Epoca d’Oro retro cycling event. If you love the sport of cycling as well as appreciate the beauty of its history then you will want to join us on May 3rd as we pay homage to the past. Cyclists on vintage bikes (pre-1987 era) and wearing the garb from a golden era (‘epoca d’oro’) of cycling will unite to ride the rural roads of southern Ontario. This will be a social event and group bike ride, with breakfast and lunch. More info about the event here.
