L'Eroica is born out of that love for cycling on which quite a bit of history and a lot of italian literature is written, with the intent to seek out the authentic roots of a beautiful sport, with a great populist soul, and to rediscover the beauty of fatigue and a taste for the enterprise. In addition, l'eroica is a foundation whose purpose is to safeguard the heritage of the white roads of tuscany. From these romantically current conceptions came the idea of ​​the cycling event which was born in 1997. At the start, at the time, there were 92 "hunters of feelings and emotions". Giancarlo Brocci.

Today, L’Eroica is a example of development of the environmental heritage, of the sustainable lifestyle of clean cycling, where looking to the past points to the future: witness the numbers a success due to the passion of its organizers and creators. 5000 subscribers as a maximum limited number, 15,000 people including the accompanying families. From this year to underline its commitment to the development of education and environmental sustainability,  space was given to an area dedicated to companies who are particularly engaged in this area. It is just another example of how the concept of the eroica can be as timely as ever.

There are those who grow their belle époque mustache. Those who arrive late at night, shake the backpack from their shoulders and sleep in a sleeping bag. Those who could do two hundred kilometers, but prefer to do seventy and enjoy the show, and above all the refreshments.
(Stefano Affolti / La Provincia di Varese)
