For many riders, ''Eroica'' marks the end of the cycling season. The race is run on the last Sunday of October on the 'Strade Bianche' (dirt roads), in the heart of Tuscany, with pre-1987 bycicles, wearing woollen jerseys

and fuelled by genuine Italian food and wine.

 

A time capsule of the golden era of cycling with breathtaking scenery and atmosphere where...''everything old is new for a day''...
