A space for the little ones

Within the Cycling Tourism Fair, there is an area where children can have fun and experience physical activities in complete safety. We all know how little time our children and grandchildren dedicate to daily physical activities and how this lack can lead to numerous problems, both physical and psychological.

For this reason, the Cycling Tourism Fair has decided to create a space dedicated to children, to make them aware of the importance of a physically active lifestyle and to teach them how to ride and move autonomously and safely even on the road.

Through playful workshops, led by qualified instructors, children can have fun and ride together, even without the presence of parents, who can visit the Cycling Tourism Fair with peace of mind.

Our children will be able to pedal, climb, run, jump, throw, and experience all the basic motor skills and have a blast, socialize with each other, and spend a day full of fun and laughter.
