Cycling is becoming more and more an instrument of discovery and well-being, conquering people of all ages, and used as the ideal mean of slow tourism as well as a mean of urban transportation.

Aware of the great potential of this practice ADRIATICA IONICA RACE wants to be an opportunity to promote, on a large scale, the beauties of these lands. We want to travel through the territories of the north east discovering new places and ancient traditions made of culture, art and food, tracing unusual and fascinating “trails”.

ADRIATICA IONICA RACE is not just a race, it is also a booster for a heterogeneous land whose main values and traditions have not yet been entirely explored. The race aims to be a new way of organizing a cycling competition, through a modern and dynamic format. By means of a variety of competitions that meet todays needs: individual time trial, team time trial, night race, in line race with the inclusion of dirt roads and spectacular uphill arrivals.

A cocktail of emotions in which every ingredient is perfectly balanced. We want to rediscover with the bicycle an ancient route, reopen cultural boundaries while imagining the adriatic and ionian seas as great bridges between civilizations.
