L’Eroica, which translates as ‘the heroes’ started in 1997 in Tuscany, Italy because of one man, Giancarlo Brocci, who admired the values of a past cycling so much that he wanted to reconnect others to the heritage that inspired much Italian history, literature, culture, and music. L’Eroica also created a foundation for the protection and preservation of the last gravel roads in Tuscany. These romantic concepts led to the idea of L’Eroica, an event that initially saw 92 “hunters of feelings and emotions”, as the creator Giancarlo Brocci defines them. 20 years later with many thousands of riders from all over the world taking part in almost every continent, its authenticity remains as strong as ever.
