L’Eroica takes the dirt roads on vintage bikes to the EU Parliament

The vice president, Zile: “An example to follow, it enhances forgotten territories”

“Since yesterday afternoon, L’Eroica and its strong pedaling emotions have been the protagonists at the European Parliament with an exhibition that is enjoying enormous public success. There are a large number of MEPs who congratulate the organizers of the event which, born in Gaiole in Chianti (Siena) in 1997, offers its values ​​all over the world involving tens of thousands of cyclists and enthusiasts every year”. The staff of the famous vintage bike race writes it in a note. “We are here in Brussels -declared Giancarlo Brocci, creator of L’Eroica- thanks to a very welcome invitation from the vice-president Roberts Zile and the Hon. Carlo Fidanza fascinated by heroic cycling and the value opportunities it offers. Starting from the province of Siena, today L’Eroica brings joy everywhere and favors the development of the area. Therefore, many look to Gaiole in Chianti as a development model to be protected with the support of the institutions, starting with the European Parliament and Minister Gilberto Pichetto Fratin who is supporting our initiative in Brussels”.

“The white roads, their rediscovery and enhancement, both in Italy and throughout Europe, are the subject of the many meetings that take place at the stand set up by L’Eroica in the area of ​​greatest visibility of the European Parliament headquarters: with the vice president Roberts Zile and the Hon Carlo Fidanza and all the other MEPs we are meeting are in complete harmony – Brocci continues – the complete constitutional arc proves to be sensitive and in agreement; the values ​​proposed by L’Eroica are in complete harmony with the objectives of sustainability, circular economy and environmental protection at the center of the global political debate”.

“I know L’Eroica well and that’s why we invited the organizers here to Brussels -declares the vice-president Roberts Zile- it’s an example to follow because it enhances forgotten territories”. “With L’Eroica, Italy sets an example – underlines the Hon. Carlo Fidanza, head of the Fratelli d’Italia delegation to the European Parliament – and we are proud to present it to the entire European Parliament to tell about a great event of Italian tradition and excellence that every year brings together thousands of athletes and amateurs on the streets of Tuscany”. A model that does not speak to the past: “We are looking a lot to the future – concludes Franco Rossi, president of Eroica Italia asd – the first scheduled appointment is with the youngsters and the junior Nation’s Cup that Siena will host in three weeks”. The exhibition set up by L’Eroica in the headquarters of the European Parliament in Brussels will close its doors tomorrow, Thursday 30 March.
