The Granfondo Campagnolo Roma 2018 will take place on Sunday October 14 for thousands of amateur cyclists, both from Italy and abroad. The Granfondo Campagnolo Roma 2018 offers an innovative formula that is very popular because it brings together cycling enthusiasts of all types of cycling and of all ages, in the absolutely fantastic setting.
Conquer Rome, the Capital, where the most daring will be able to take on the competitive participants of the 122km Gran Fondo with 2000 m altitude gain. Those preferring to challenge history, or simply to pedal with their friends on a shorter route, can take part in The Appian Way, a vintage bike race in L'Eroica style, or the non-competitive "In Bici ai Castelli" event open to all types of bike, including electric bicycles. The infinite attractions offered by the city and the Gran Fondo Exhibition Village will risk distracting attention from the race, but I believe that very few people, including the inhabitants of Rome themselves, have ever had the honour of riding between the Colosseum and Imperial Fora without motor vehicles speeding all around, as could only happen a very, very long time ago. This honour is reserved exclusively for participants in the event… and those opting to take part with vintage costumes and bicycles will perhaps feel as though they have gone back in time... I don't know if we will manage to conquer Rome, but in the end I am quite certain Rome will have conquered us!
