The Marzocchina is a race that takes place every year on the second weekend of September. It is a kind of picnic among friends with old vintage bikes that speed through the historic centers and the beautiful countryside of the Valdarno area.

There are three routes ranging in length from 42 to 107 kilometers. Each route is suitable for just about anyone, from the more well trained to the less experienced bikers. Heading out on dirt roads, you’ll pass through medieval villages and get swept away by the enchanting landscapes. This race has only one strict rule, that you dress in vintage gear as you experience this full-day race on two wheels and discover the history of this valley nestled between Arezzo and Florence.

The lunar scenarios are absolutely unique. The first is the old mine in Santa Barbara and the second is the mining area of the Cavriglia power plant in San Giovanni Valdarno. After the ride you have to stop at one of the many food trucks to enjoy traditional Valdarno foods and share stories about your heroic cycling adventures.

There are also many other events that enliven the town of San Giovanni Valdarno during the weekend. Check out the official website to stay up to date.
