“We are about to close online registrations for La SpoletoNorcia at MTB 2022 tomorrow, crossing the threshold of 1,500 participants and thus confirming the numbers for 2019, the last year in the pre-pandemic period, at a time when similar sporting and cycling events are showing a decline due to both the expansion of the offer. , whether for a general contraction in spending power. Our event proves to be competitive and increases induced tourism in the region, dragging the region’s hospitality system with cycling tourism which, however, can and should be believed more.” This is the statement of Luca Mineserini, Head of SSD La SpoletoNorcia at MTB, organizer of the event who is preparing to open the doors of the 9th edition on Friday 2 September, while closing is scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday 4 September, when it ends, prizes will be awarded to the various bike paths tracked around Old Railroad and SN CUP Competitive Race Participants.
“In particular – continues Ministrini – we are recording a growing interest from groups and families. We have developed moments of play and entertainment in the city, and on Sunday we will have about 250 families with children aged 5 years and over on the family circuit. This is the result – concluded Ministrini – It is the result of our commitment to social issues and the increasingly inclusive SpoletoNorcia, which aims to create a true ‘Bicycle District’ under the SN365 brand, a project that embraces the whole year with a slow permanent tourism cycle, sustainable tourism proposals for villages and communities, and high-quality services for cyclists.”
The event, which over the years has brought more than 20,000 people to Spoleto, this year registers an increase in participants from abroad – mainly from the UK, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia and Dubai – and is proven to be a great moment to promote and see what is surely one of the most beautiful Italian cycling routes. , which every year attracts 10,000 people, a fact that we want to overcome for the benefit of the entire regional territory.
