Since 1997 l’Eroica is a example of development of the environmental heritage, of the sustainable lifestyle of clean cycling. A world where everyone is the hero in his own way: where the important thing is to show that you can sacrifice with a smile for a healthy passion. This is the original event which inspired an entire movement.
