"bicifi" is the name of the Florence Bike Festival to be held March 1 to March 3, 2013. As part of the festival the first gran fondo in Florence will be held March 2nd on some of the same roads that will be used later in the year for the road world championships. The start will be from Fortezza da Basso, then passing through the historic center of Florence, and then into the hills of Chianti to Radda before the route turns back towards Florence.
Here Davide Cassani, the well known cycling announcer on RAI, presents (in Italian) bicifi and the gran fondo:
