"With the contribution of the Monaco Cycling Federation, we will welcome families, children, friends and athletes. Our aim is to share our philosophy with everyone, which is cycling and bicycles as a way of life even in the city,” said Matteo Trentin, who is part of the organising team.
“We are expecting many children so that we can give them the opportunity to ride safely. I would like to thank the many colleagues living in the Principality for their availability and presence. We are probably the best ambassadors to spread the correct message about cycling,” concluded Trentin. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.
