VENTO Bici Tour 2020
VIII Edition | From the 25th of May to the 2nd of June along the planned cyclepath
Tour postponed to September: 12/09 – 22/09
This year VENTO turns 10 and certainly does not want to give up celebrating with you what is not only the project of a cycle path, but more than this: a new way of conceiving progress and development, sliding slowly, all together, along a thread.
We cannot celebrate in May and June, first we must all together defeat Covid19 staying at home. But in September we will be stronger and the Tour will be our and your liberation. Sorry and keep free to cycle with us:
Those who have already registered, if unable to participate in the new dates, are asked to notify us by mail.
Begins again the VENTO Bici Tour, the cultural cycle tour along the thread of the future VENTO cycle path, promoted by the research group of the Polytechnic of Milan in the year in which the VENTO project turns 10 years.
A celebrative tour that for the fourth consecutive year opens to everyone during some collective bike days:
- Saturday 12 of September from Casale Monferrato to Voghera (23/5,expected date before postponement to September)
- from Saturday 19th to Tuesday 22th of September from Parma City of Culture 2020 to the Adriatic Sea (30/5 – 2/6, expected dates before postponement to September)
|Please note. In this moment in which we are forced to navigate on sight and we have no certainty on the activities that the government and regional decrees will allow to carry out, the sign up consists of a pre-registration. We ask you to fill in all the fields on the sign up form by entering your personal data and your preferences. We will ask you to pay the sign up fee when we will be sure about the feasibility of the Tour. We invite you to memorize your access data to the website’s private area, as you will have to use them to pay the sign up fee.|

Information on the track we are going to cover
VENTO is not an existing cycle path, at the moment it is only a cycle path project with cycle tourism value. To date, some sections are unpaved, with uneven ground, or in promiscuous with cars. Politecnico di Milano does not assume any responsibility towards who will take part in the collective ride. The Politecnico di Milano delegates the organization of collective cycling days to an external party. This will endeavor to obtain transit permits on the WIND track that allow you to travel the planned cycle path in the safest possible way, also through limitations and temporary closures of traffic where necessary.
