No, it is not a ‘conventional’ granfondo. VENEtoGO is experiencing cycling as fun, socialising, feeling part of wonderful landscapes and not just crossing them, tasting delicacies together with friends, cycling on the roads of champions together with champions. Not behind, but alongside them.
This is what will happen on 14 October 2023, the day of the third edition of VENEtoGO, the unique social ride that will act as a prelude to the Veneto Classic for professionals, treading the same roads of the finale. The main part of the route will in fact be drawn in the hilly area of Vicenza between the rivers Brenta and Astico, with wide scenic stretches, some ‘peppery’ climbs but accessible to all, and a few unpublished entries whose details are currently being finalised.
“A pedal ride without rankings does not have anything less, on the contrary, it can give much more,” says Filippo Pozzato, General Manager of PP Sport Events. “VENEtoGO wants to be a day of celebration and light-heartedness in which the bike is the protagonist, but actually becomes the pretext to live a day with a smile.
The starts will be in the French style, where each participant will be able to start when they prefer.
The welcome programme reserved for participants is in the name of abundance. All registered participants will receive a premium race kit, while three gourmet refreshment points with hot dishes and premium products will be set up along the route. Music will be a constant. At the end of the social ride there will still be room to celebrate an unforgettable day with friends. The only rule: “Don’t race, havefun”.
