Last weekend, Eroica Montalcino 2018 – one of the most exciting vintage bike events – took place in Montalcino, in the heart of Tuscany (Italy). This time again the adventure was great and absolutely worth a visit.
It was a long journey for the SVB team starting from Berlin into the heart of Tuscany. After a long drive, it was for us the occasion to get into the "dolce vita" mood, enjoy a glass of Brunello and indulge ourselves with the Tuscan landscapes.
On Sunday, the Eroica race day was a beautiful experience: witnessing people from 20 different countries riding through sweat, dust and mountains pushed by the passion for vintage bikes was amazing. We rode ourself the 70km route which was already pretty challenging. With 1450m elevation and the famous "Castiglion del Bosco" climb with up to 16% inclination on gravel roads, we truly, heroicly challenged ourselves and our bikes.
We hope to see many more enthusiasts at the next edition.
