Bartali - The Hero’s Path is a unique charity ride from Florence to Assisi in commemoration of Gino Bartali, the legendary Italian cycling champion, who helped save the lives of hundreds during WWII and never talked about it.
Organized by Bartali - Youth in Movement (NGO) in collaboration with local cycling experts UnPaved Roads, Rolling Dreamers and ChronoBikes, this event gathers cycling enthusiasts from all over the world to ride and raise funds to support Bartali - Youth in Movement educational programs around Israel.
