We remind that “Elbaman do-it-yourself” is not a race. No time will be considered and there will not be a ranking. Traffic laws and rules have to be followed.
In particular pay attention in 2 points of bike course
- Internal passage in S.Ilario (Elbaman) is on a closed small street in the wrong way. Please cover it on the correct way accordingly to traffic laws!
- The return section from La Pila to Marina di Campo at the end of the lap is covered, during race day, in the wrong way closing the whole section (1km about). You can anyhow follow the course, but only passing through the cycle lane. This lane is narrow with a couple of blind turn., please ride on it SLOW and with extreme care!
Finally we are also happy to announce that, taking advantage of this unusually “calm” year, we have prepared a new website that we hope could make your navigation easier and clearer.
