CITYLIFE SHOPPING DISTRICT
The rich calendar of RIDEMOOD starts with a day organized by EICMA and CityLife Shopping District with the patronage of Milan City Council.
The event, on Sunday 4th November 2018, is dedicated to sport and the commemoration of the Victory of the 1915-1918 war in an innovative city in continuous transformation, like Milan.
Not only bicycles with races and exhibitions will be featured, but also engines with a road education activity which is increasingly necessary to improve and learn from a very early age.
CityLife, thanks to its pedestrian and cycling areas, is the ideal stage for this type of event with its impressive location and a continuous flow of people from all over the world.
The village will open at 11.00 a.m. with activities in the Minimoto area, where children will be able to try out the thrill of riding a small motorbike in complete safety, thanks to the invaluable contribution of the MotoFalchi of the Local Milan Police, who will teach them the basics of road safety.
For all bike lovers, there will be the “VICTORY TROPHY”: the race with the fixed-gear bicycles.
Inside the Shopping District, there will be an exhibition telling the story of EICMA from 1914 to today.
The Marina Romoli Non-profit organization, founded in 2011 after the road accident which completely turned the life of the promising cyclist from the Marche region Marina Romoli upside-down, leaving her a paraplegic.
The objectives of this association are to promote and finance scientific research, aimed at finding a cure for paralysis caused by chronic injuries of the spinal cord, and help economically young athletes who are in strongly invalidating conditions.
