TERRE NOBILI

Regulations

TERRE NOBILI is not a race, it is a non-competitive event. Intended as a welcome escape from the daily routine, it takes place on asphalt roads, cycle paths, dirt roads, mule tracks and trails…

TERRE NOBILI is not a race, it is a non-competitive event organised by A.C.D. Pedali di Marca under the aegis of the Amateur sector of the Italian Cycling Federation (FCI), with the unsupported bikepacking formula.
The start will be conducted in the “French” style in which every entrant can decide their own pace.
There are no times to beat because the event is intended as a genuine escape from the daily routine, where entrants are expressly asked to leave their comfort zone and experience the days with rhythms dictated solely by the sunrise and sunset. There will be no signposts because the course will be revealed as the entrants pedal along following the GPS route with a cycle computer or smartphone
TERRE NOBILI takes place on asphalt roads, cycle paths, dirt roads, mule tracks and trails; the route is open to traffic, and so all entrants must observe the Highway Code.

The event is open to any type of bike (gravel, cyclo-cross, mountain bikes, road bikes with suitable tyres and e-bikes).
