Enecta Bike Tour, first edition “A tribute to Abruzzo”
During the weekend the first edition of the Enecta Bike Tour was held in Abruzzo. A long round tour by bike to talk, and not only, about Green Valley, the company from Abruzzo where Cannabis is cultivated.
A caravan of thirty individuals, amongst whom cyclists, staff and supporting staff, with a couple of foreign components, left on Saturday 8 September from Castelvecchio Subequo and arrived in Santo Stefano di Sessanio, to return the day after, taking an alternative route.
“The Enecta Bike Tour - Jacopo Paolini explains - is a tribute to the Abruzzo territory. Today the Hemp supply chain, also due to an important adjustment of the Italian regulatory framework, which promotes its industrial cultivation, has the possibility to become an economy driving force of the Country, creating new economic opportunities as well as new professional figures and work spaces”.
The Enecta Bike Tour has been designed for those who love biking, nature and mountains in all their forms. During the two day tour the cyclists appreciated, besides the ascents, local products, culinary delicacies and wines from the territory.
The group crossed the Parco nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga, where you can find more than a third of the Italian floral heritage. Biking through the timeless marvels of the small Tibet of Abruzzo, Campo Imperatore, where on May 13 this year the ninth stage of the Giro d’Italia 2018 ended.
Not a competitive race, but a caravan of cyclist, biking together in the green lands of Abruzzo.
