1st March 2019 – Three days of experience, to better enjoy your holiday in Tuscany; riding in the saddle of your bike for a super weekend, in the spirit of pure adrenaline in Aprilia style. With the destination the Aprilia All Stars event: Aprilia, its bikes and its champions of today and yesterday await you on the Mugello Circuit for a big party. The idea is to go together with other motorcyclists, fans of Aprilia. This is the program of the tour by Aprilia.
Friday 22 March. 12:00 PM-1:00 PM: rendez-vous with your bikes at Park Hotel Ripaverde 4* (Borgo San Lorenzo, Mugello, Florence’s province; www.ripaverde.it), which will be our base and starting point. 1:30 PM: stop for a light lunch of local specialities. 2:30 PM: we will ride along Pilastrino Lake to the legendary Strada Statale 65 “della Futa”, the main road that connected Bologna and Florence before the “Autostrada del Sole” motorway was built and which has always been an internationally acclaimed point of reference for bikers, as much for its dynamic qualities as for its “coffee shops”, first at the Futa pass and then the Raticosa, a must-see biker meeting place.
We'll then set off to discover some routes that are hidden among the hills until entering the parallel valley for the return trip, which go through the “Giogo” pass. 6:00 PM: arrival at the hotel; the trip odometer will show about one hundred kilometres, all leaning through turns! 8:00 PM: dinner and overnight stay.
Saturday 23 March. 9:30 AM: after breakfast, departure for the Mugello Circuit to spend a day of full immersion in the Aprilia world with the Aprilia All Stars event.
Exclusive access to the Aprilia Hospitality area, where you will be able to meet the Aprilia riders of today and yesterday, as well as the technical team. Test Ride on the road with the entire range of available Aprilia bikes. Entertainment in the Paddock, where you will be able to get to know the Aprilia riders in a dedicated meet & greet, complete with selfies and autographs. Dedicated parking close to the circuit entrance. Along with our partners and the many guests, you will experience an unforgettable day full of Aprilia-brand surprises! 6:00 PM: return to hotel – dinner and overnight stay.
Sunday 24 March. About 8:30 AM: after breakfast and check-out, we'll get back in the saddle to discover other legendary Appennine passes between Romagna and Tuscany, a region with a burning passion for motoring! We'll take the regional road that runs from Florence to Faenza at the height of the watershed, the renowned “Colla di Casaglia”, and we'll deviate from the main road to take a breathtaking section, known only to local bikers - the “Sambuca” - with views that will truly take your breath away at the peak of the Po Valley.
After a stop in the delightful medieval centre of Palazzuolo sul Senio (photo above), still taking the winding back roads astride our bikes, we'll go through Marradi and climb from there all the way to the San Benedetto Alps, just a few turns from the proverbial “Muraglione” pass, the setting of epic battles on two wheels every weekend. 12:30 PM - 1:00 PM: stop for a lunch of local specialities and then the final curves until reaching the valley floor and heading back to the hotel. About 2:00 PM: end of the tour and farewell until next time!
