A host of topics committed to demonstrating that by collaborating with enthusiasm and competence, it is possible to concretely create an event that is truly educational and ecologically sustainable, as well as completely safe.

The goals for “Bike and school together”

Bicycle and school together in fact, it was created to encourage the use of bicycles as a way of life and as a sport: to be practiced whenever possible, but always in complete safety. Because cycling is synonymous with much more: ecological activity, strengthening the spirit of sport intended as play, education, amalgamation and cooperation to the detriment of the purely competitive aspect and marginalization of those less attracted to competitive sports.

And especially, Bicycle and school together are born from the idea to nothing is better than a day of sports and play to learn the value of topics that are as important as they are educational. In addition to all this, the event this year also wants to launch another good message: the importance of ensuring children the right to social interaction and playto teach them (and all those involved) how to behave properly, in accordance with the applicable rules and without having to give up a little carefree.
