We are waiting for you in 2023

EDITION 2021

Since COVID didn't allow ride our bikes on 2020, we are happy to remember what happened the year before...

Pontedera, Sunday 5 September 2021.
Finally we came back to ride our bikes on the Valdera's hills. About 500 friends jumped on their bikes, each with their own pace but all with a smile in the face and with the head held high to enjoy panoramas and villages , but above all willing to "lose" minutes to gain the pleasure of a photo with friends, exchange a few words and savor some local products offered in the various refreshments (up to 7 on the long route).

You can see more than 1500 photos on Facebook!

This is happened in 2021...
Keep yourself free for the 2022 edition because the "Randonnée mtb della Valdera" will be even more spectacular!

STORY

We are a group of friends who share a variety of sporting interests, including cycling and especially MTB. The area in which we live is very pleasant and attractive for its naturalistic beauties, for this reason we tried to marry our passion for cycling with the most natural and typical tracks of the Valdera. The idea was born in October 2012 almost like a joke and since then we have repeat it untill today with the same passion and the same desire to live sport into the nature with friends. The philosophy of our Randonnée is in fact to share a non-competitive sport, authentic and genuine, without the burden of the stopwatch or the challenge, but in direct contact with the beautiful hills that surround our villages.
For this year we have thought a truly exciting itinerary, which will make you discover the villages of Peccioli, Chianni, Terricciola, Legoli and Castelfalfi crossing green valleys full of climbs and magical paths. All in the name of nature. Don't be frightened if the itinerary may seem difficult and tiring, we have thought three different routes for everyone! One course more difficult for the more experienced and adventurous, one intermediate and another shorter and easier. We are waiting for you, full of passion and enthusiasm, with our same spirit for the values, the real ones, of a natural life that unfortunately is becoming more and more lost in the daily frenzy.
