I consider it an excellent showcase for a company like mine, that was born, grew up and consolidated on bicycle tourism. For a Gran Fondo Lake Veneto area is perfect because it offers unique views and roads, for this reason with my wife Michela, my partner in the Tour Operator, we answered yes. Garda area is historically linked to cycling, we hope many cyclists will come to know us in Peschiera and in the future will ride with us around the world. Write down the date on the calendar, we look forward to see you all in Gran Fondo Bike Division Peschiera del Garda!».
