Formula Bici is the point of reference for all the Italian cyclists, representing the country’s most significant sportive cycling events – Maratona dles Dolomites, Nove Colli, Eroica, Sportful Dolomiti Race, Granfondo Strade Bianche, La Fausto Coppi, Granfondo Felice Gimondi, Dolomiti Superbike… and many others – in road, mountain biking, stage races, randonnées and vintage cycling, and working to improve many aspects of this exciting world of events, including safety, hospitality, and respect for the environment.
In a season so difficult for everyone, even the amateur cycling movement has suffered significantly, with the cancellation of almost all the races scheduled for 2020, except for some which have been postponed to autumn. Formula Bici is determined to send a positive signal, launching an initiative to raise funds for important work, but also to provide motivation to all cyclists: this is ‘Formula Bici RideYourDream’, designed to allow all cyclists to be able to become a ‘Finisher’ of any Formula Bici events, which can all be entered by paying a contribution of €10 which will be donated in full to the Protezione Civile Italian (Italian Civil Protection).
But how does Formula Bici RideYourDream work? It’s a simple matter of registering in the RideYourDream area of the Formula Bici website (www.formulabici.it) and then completing, on a road of your choice, by December 31st of this year, any of the different events that comprise the Formula Bici 2020 calendar, as listed on the website. You can select the event based on the distance you want to ride or the total altitude: you can complete the most prestigious amateur cycling events in Italy on roads of your choice, with distances ranging from 52 to 209km and total altitude ranging from 400 to 4,900 meters!
The rules are very simple: you can pedal wherever you want and on any day you want so long as you respect the total distance of the event, with a margin of +/-10%, and the total altitude, with a margin of +/-5%. Once your ride is finished, you upload the recorded data with your GPS and you’ll receive a personalized ‘Finisher’ certificate for the event you have chosen to ride.
“With this initiative we want to give a positive signal to the world of cycling and let cyclists worldwide dream about riding the most iconic Italian events,” says Formula Bici General Manager Matteo Gerevini. “and I am sure that Formula Bici RideYourDream can give great motivation to all the cyclists so ‘depressed’ in a year with virtually no events, and push them to chase their dreams and ride with enthusiasm in their own safe places throughout the season, reaching the goal of completing a Nove Colli or a Maratona dles Dolomites, or one of the other many races that make up Formula Bici.”
All participants in the Formula Bici RideYourDream initiative will also receive a two months free use of the Bike Personal Coach App, offered by BIKEVO, official partner of Formula Bici.
