At the beginning of June this region will host one of the most fascinating events of the Italian summer: Storica in Appennino, a vintage cycling race that will take place on old roads bordering the regions of Emilia and Toscana and passing by rivers, waterfalls, fallow land and beautiful hamlets. Men women and children in vintage cycling outfits will ride vintage bicycles that have made Italian cycling history. It will be a non competitive event aimed at getting cycling enthusiasts together through hairpin turns, asphalted and gravelled roads under the shade of maples and chestnut trees to reach refreshment areas that will host local wine and food gracefully prepared for the event.
