To all a warm LAMPeggio greeting, Andrea


The main ingredients of the recipe of "Dust&Glory on the roads of the heroic”© in motion " are:

– the most beautiful Italy: the countryside and the hills of Tuscany, famous worldwide for the unique landscape value and the widespread wealth of art and history, seeing extraordinarily privileged terms: those dirt roads leading to kilometers light years away from the ugliness of concrete and traffic;

-the most exciting motorcycle: superfluous talk, everyone knows the chills that controversy dredged up his bike sa. The enduro bike in particular have been able to rewrite a new epic of two wheels, opening the borders, sometimes even those of fantasy, new horizons. Older ones have incorporated dust and the memories of many adventures big and small already experienced; the latest technology that promises to feel at home even to remote destinations. But they are large or small, new or vintage, prestigious combat or, Basic or accessoriatissime, know how to turn on the most important sources of energy:

-the passion of becoming, together: along with themselves, in the depths of your helmet driving on a sunny dirt road; together with friends, are they the most expensive or those just met at a crossroads or in the shade of a beautiful leafy tree; together with the people that we live, curious and friendly to us than we are of them and their country.

The program will try to put all participants in ideal conditions to enjoy these pleasures of life, in a relationship of great respect for the territory that welcomes us.

By the heroic “Fourth Full”, some questions that are often asked by those who have never done the path of L'Eroica.

It can be done with a road bike?
Yes, if done with due caution you do quietly even with road bikes ( Naked, Bonneville, scrambler etc…). I strongly advise against super road.

If it rains or rained in the previous days, you do well anyway without danger?
Yes, because the white roads are made up of brecciolino that drains the rain very well, better than the water-draining asphalt of highways, certain some pool there might be, but nothing worrying or dangerous. Always consider that the roads soono always very well maintained.

How many hours does it take to ride the whole ride?
To do it as best I recommend at least 8 total commitment hours, Why:
-100 km are asphalt, then 2 hours. ( Average 50 km/h)
-100 km of are of white roads, then 3 hours. ( Average 33,3 km/h)
-1 hour of photo stops along the way.
-2 hours between lunch stop+petrol stop+various and any.
-Total 8 hours, but if you take more to do it it's even better.

Recommended season?
Between April and May it is perfect, but also autumn. April/May because the hills of the Val d'Orcia will be of a bright green model ”Irish hills”, little dust, few people. Autumn because the Chianti vineyards will be full of colors, between green, yellow and red. Always few people and always little dust. Summer to avoid, too much dust and too many people too hot. In winter it is disreciable if you are novice because it is dark too early and you would be forced to go around too quickly.

Always be polite to the people you meet along the way. Meet many cyclists, Walkers ( part of the tour is included in the route of the Via Francigena) and also people on horseback. Slow down so as not to raise the dust, greeted and divided, so you'll save yourself some damn

The Heroic in motion at least once in a lifetime must be done!

Enjoy "Dust&Gloria”, unless you have the outrageous fortune of living within fifty kilometres from our base in Gaiole in Chianti, You should gear up to spend on site both on Friday and Saturday nights.

There are so many opportunities in the surroundings of Gaiole accommodation for every taste and every budget; you are of course free to decide which contact, con l’unica cautela possibilmente di non allontanarsi di oltre15/20 km dall’abitatodiciamo di cercare di rimanere più o meno fra Radda e Cavrigliaconsiderando i due rientri dopo cena🙂

The most heroic remains, Thanks to the availability of our guests gaiolesi, the bivouac on the soft grass of the municipal soccer field (two minutes walking distance from our base) using the toilet building (so toilets and showers) of the structure, the symbolic figure really euros 20 fee per person for both nights.

Oh well be "Heroic", But even before we are real gentlemen, and even once we get off the bike we continue to stand out with casual elegance!

Che combinazione di colori ci inventeremo con il nostro mitico affezionato Tony, guarantee of unsurpassed quality?!

Plush, as usual, will be available by reservation only, to be done preferably together with the pre-registration, and in any case not later than 1° of April, When we will start the production.

The boss is really top quality, both in materials that in manufacturing, not to mention the lavish goldwork – ask anyone who already bought a!

Special attention should be paid to the choice of the size: Since this is true "Made in Italy", the measures are not those sbalargone which has accustomed us American/Chinese production, but much more tight dress, so it is essential to always choose a size larger than "commercial". In short, If the hoodies you buy to tell the Decathlon are M, Here you will need to choose the L, And so on.

Meanwhile enjoy a rundown of previous years' versions …

Taken into account the beauty and hospitality of the territory that hosts us, as organizers of Dust&Glory – on the streets of the heroic© in motion We expect, by all participants at the event, beyond full respect for the “Regulation” Formal, a test specimen of that attitude of attention, curiosity and concern that distinguishes the true mototravellers.

First of all, the meeting was purely tourism, discovery of an ancient region of unspoilt beauty and charm, of its landscape and its culture world-wide famous, reflected in the nobility of mind and behavior of people who are privileged to inhabit it.

For the organisation of Dust&Glory – on the streets of the heroic© in motion reserves the right to refuse, or dismiss at any time, in its sole discretion, the presence not in tune with the spirit that.

For the rest, l’Heroic© is a path that unfolds on ordinary roads, paved roads and no, open to normal traffic, so each one is directly responsible for the behaviour of strict compliance with the highway code and any other rule of law and common sense, and is personally responsible for your conduct and consequences.
