Mondovì Ready 4 Bike

2nd-3rd June Mondovì is preparing for a double appointment for two-wheel enthusiasts: it will host the event "Mondovì Ready 4 Bike "and the second stage of the Italian Urban Downhill Cup, for a weekend entirely dedicated to sport, but also to the enhancement of the city that will be the backdrop to a unique race of its kind, between the alleys and streets of the historic center. Thanks to the presence of specialists of the descent and jumps on two wheels, the hill of Piazza will lend itself, in fact, to unusual routes to discover unpublished views. The historic center of Breo will instead turn into an exhibition area, with lots of guided itineraries and areas designed for children and for teaching: true protagonists of the appointment will be the many companies that work with passion every day in the Cuneo area to propose dedicated itineraries, equipped areas, bike-gatherings and competitions.  And it will fit fully into the week of events promoted by the city, as a corollary of the eighteenth stage of the Giro d'Italia.
