Südtiroler Radsporttage peloton groupé
The third edition of the popular Südtiroler Radsporttage took place last week outside of Bolzano in the region of Frangart/Appiano. This years’ motto “Peloton groupé” was chosen with the idea that participants ride the same route at different speeds but meet up at specific spots along the way. This idea reflected the focus of this special tour: ride and enjoy the the passion of cycling together.
Under the direction of the organiser of the event Roland Deuschle and his cycling guides, various bike routes were offered to the two performance groups on a daily basis.
The prospective tours as well as the daily schedule, including the meeting and rest spots for the individual groups, were presented each evening and discussed by the group as a whole. This allowed all participants to choose the right group to suit their fitness.
An added treat, exclusively for participants in the Cycling Days, was the “Peloton groupé” Jersey short sleeve designed and manufactured by the Bolzano cycling clothing manufacturer Q36.5 under the “Made in Italy” quality seal. Participants also received a Q36.5 Salopette Miles Gregarius titanium that matched the colours of the jersey perfectly. This was the ideal comfort bib short to support them on the long rides.
This direct connection to the cycling clothing manufacturer Q36.5 of Bolzano added a regionality to the event and not only enhanced the overall appearance of the group but helped instil a sense of community amongst the participants during the daily group rides.
After collecting participant feedback, Roland Deuschle is already incorporating new ideas and inspiration into his plans for next year’s Cycling Days.
