The Festival of the Slow Cyclist

"Lucky the last who know how to enjoy the life"

Ferrara, the ultimate city for bikes, will hold the "Festival of the Slow Cyclist" during the weekend from the 25th to the 27th October 201.

On Friday 26th at 18.00, there will take place a meeting in the Sala Estense Theatre with some nationally relevant people from the cultural, economical and political context. The focus of the conference will be about needs, rights and opportunities of the Slow Cyclists. After that, will follow the Gran Galà of the Slow Cyclist with the show of the Maglie Nere from Giro d'Italia. Hosted by Guido Foddis and the rockband "La Repubblica delle Biciclette"

On Saturday at 9.15 will take place "The slowest bike ride in the world: 5 km in 5 hours". With this ride you will discover the beatiful city of Ferrara through some of the most famous sights and some enogastronomical stops where you can eat and drink some typical dishes and wines.

At 17.00, the meeting is in the Velodromo "Fausto Coppi", where a slow match will take place: "Record of one hour... backwards". The champions who have made the history of the running fast cycling will come back to competitions to reach a new record: the cyclist who will cover the less distance in one hour.

On Sunday morning, there will be the "Granfondo del Merendone" where we will slowly lead you through the most suggestivi bike paths in the surrounding area of Ferrara, discovering some beatiful historical places in the middle of the nature. This year tour will start from the Adriatic Coast and it will end in Argenta passing through the Po Delta in a 50km long ride. The last one who arrived, will win the title of Slow Cyclist 2019. 

The Festival will end after lunch.

And don't forget "Lucky the last who know how to enjoy the life", because none may enjoy the life, the nature, the city, better than a slow cyclist!
