Please, help us to make Milan a bicycle friendly town!
Fiab Ciclobby is a non-profit organization devoted to improve cycling conditions and protecting the rights of cyclists.
Ciclobby is a member of the Italian "Federation of Bicycle Friends" (FIAB, also a non-profit organization), which brings together more than 100 other similar associations spread throughout Italy.
FIAB is a member of ECF, European Cyclists' Federation.
The objective of Fiab Ciclobby is to promote cycling:
- as a daily transport, environmentally friendly, economical and effective way of transport, which especially if properly integrated with the public transport system, offers a competitive alternative to the motor vehicles
- as a travelling vehicle, which allows a form of tourism particularly healthy and environmentally friendly.
We strive to offer, as far as possible, the greatest variety and scope of riding experiences.
Ciclobby offers, almost all the week ends of the year, a full range of riding alternatives for active, enthusiastic cyclists of intermediate and advanced levels and interests; whether you ride for fitness, for fun, for cultural interest or for endurance, you'll find flat rides, climbing rides, shorter rides, off roads rides, and longer rides.
In total, our yearly schedule contains more than 150 rides each year, all free for our members. All the starting locations are strategically located for the ride: main train stations, churches along the canals, main Duomo square.
