Save the date!

Also this year, for a couple of days, Florence will become the capital city of cycling. The forth Florence Bike Festival, indeed, will be held from the 15th to the 17th of April, and Gist will take part in the event.


The city will host a huge celebration of cycling, in all of its forms: cycling as a sport and as a healthy and eco-friendly mean of transportation. No wonder that the setting of the event is Parco delle Cascine, a park that can be considered as the green lung of the Tuscan capital city, which on this occasion will be invaded by a varied crowd, made of people of all ages, sportspeople as well as amateurs.

Events for all types of cyclists

Organised by UISP Firenze, VéloceClub Firenze and Sicrea Srl, the event is characterized by a rich and varied schedule, which includes races and city tours, shows, book presentations and meetings. The main event of the festival is the Granfondo Firenze De Rosa: celebrating its 4th edition this year, this cyclosportive is now considered as on the most popular in Italy and attracts participants also from abroad.
If you want to test your abilities on the bike, but in an easier way, you can take part in Cyclopride, a riding tour through Florence that has been conceived to promote bikes as means of transportation, and in the Sunrise Bike Pride, another tour lasting more or less one hour and that takes place in the historical centre at dawn, the best moment of the day to enjoy the wonders of the city from a privileged point of view.

Gist at the Expo Village

Last, but not least, the Florence Bike Festival includes also the Expo Village, the space dedicated to the presentation of companies and to the exhibition of products and novelties in the world of cycling. The main peculiarity of this fair is given by its location: the companies, like Gist, will present their products open air, to highlight the deep connection between bikes and nature.
To fully enjoy your favourite sport in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and to get to know Gist novelties, do not miss the Florence Bike Festival! The participation is free!
