In just a few years L’INTREPIDA has become a classic vintage bicycle touring event thanks to the cycling passion of the organizers which has made it truly unique in terms of the beauty of the landscapes which form the setting for the event, the quality of the routes, the great food made available at the various refreshment points, the hospitality extended to the participants, and the atmosphere of friendship and familiarity that makes the entire weekend so special.
Here the roads were built by the Romans and before them the Etruscans.
In those days the two-wheeled vehicles were heavy carts pushed by hand or pulled by horses.
There were no athletes along these ancient roads, only soldiers; no competitions, only battles.
There are 3 different routes:
- the 120 km Intrepido;
- the 86 km long route;
- the 43 km medium route, with departure from Anghiari (Arezzo).
The ride passes through one of the most beautiful places in Tuscany, over dirt and asphalt roads full of appeal and history.
