Basso Monferrato is a surprising place, with the typical beauty of a winegrowing landscape. Here in recent decades nature has taken back all the spaces left free by man. Fascinating, but also insidious for the survival of many small villages threatened by abandonment. Our mission is to give oxygen to this small ancient world, also protected by UNESCO, which is located just 50 minutes by highway from Milan, Turin, Genoa and Milan airport (Malpensa).
We can help this world with the only thing we can do: by organizing cycling events that allow hundreds of cyclists from other regions of Italy and abroad to discover this land every year. To help Monferrato, more people should discover what the “mal di Monferrato” is, that is the need to return as soon as possible. If you like the mission, if you feel it a little “in your gut”, write down these dates:
– SATURDAY 2 September 2023, for those who like the flame of agonism 2nd edition of La Monsterrato Gravel Race, 16th event of the Trek UCI Gravel World Series and the only Italian qualifying round for the UCI Gravel World Championship scheduled in Veneto on 7 and 8 October. The Monsterrato Gravel Race is open to gravelbikes, mtb, cyclocross bikes with enlarged and possibly knobby section tyres.
– SUNDAY 3 September 2023, for those who love slow and gentle cycling, 7/a La Monsterrato-Strade Bianche Monferrato, self-managed randonnée type pedaling open to gravelbikes, mtb, cyclocross bikes with section tires enlarged and possibly tessellated and also to e-bikes.
The choice is yours, Monferrato and Monsterrato are waiting for you.
