Rental equipment, i.e. bicycles, electric bicycles and helmets, will be available for purchase on a separate platform (corresponding to the person in charge of the relative cost) which will be active from March until 17 May.
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.
