After the success of the first edition in Milan that involved more than 15,000 visitors, the Cycling Tourism Fair’s second edition will be hosted in Bologna on Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2, 2023.
The national and international destinations, service providers, tour operators and cycling enthusiasts will meet at the DumBO, which is 20 minutes from Bologna’s central train station.
“We are delighted that the second edition of the Cycle Tourism Expo will be held in Emilia Romagna because it is a region that has invested so much in the development of cycle tourism and, in particular, Bologna is a city that has welcomed us with open arms and has always paid special attention to active mobility”Pinar Pinzuti, director, Fiera del Cicloturismo and the member of Eurovelo Council.
The Cycle Tourism Fair is the first and only event in Italy entirely dedicated to those in search of their first experience for cycling holidays or those who are choosing their next destination for adventure cycling.
“Cycle tourism is growing more and more in Italy as well, but it is often foreign operators who take advantage of it, while it is important that a local market of services dedicated to the cyclist is developed: this is why we are honored to host the Fiera del Cicloturismo, which from Milan moves to Bologna, where there is so much interest and the area has strong potential. With the 1,000 km of the Bicipolitana, the Metropolitan City of Bologna is strongly investing in this small and big revolution: from seasonal tourism to slow tourism, which can be done all year round”Simona Larghetti, Bologna City Council.
The Fiera del Cicloturismo aims to be a unique event where visitors will be able to find all the specific information they need to plan their bike routes, choose the most beautiful destinations to visit by bike and the best bike friendly services to take advantage of while traveling.
The bicycle tourism sector in recent years, as data show, is growing, and the immediate success of the Cycle Tourism Fair is also a striking demonstration of this trend.
