A Century of Italian Cycle Sport

At the start of the second week of this year’s Giro d’Italia, we take the long view of cycle sport in Italy with John Foot, professor of modern Italian history at University College London. His book Pedalare! Pedalare! tells the fascinating story of how Italy fell in love with the bicycle and how cycle sport took a central role in national life.

    wow, happy anyversary! That’s why Italian people are living so long, they practice a lot of sport and eat healthy food. :) Unfortunately I can’t do Cycle Sport as in our city there are no special roads for cyclists…
