Marzio Bruseghin arrived in the middle school of Ponte nelle Alpi and Longarone
The Giro d’Italia is not just a celebration of sport and the public. It is also a social commitment and the promotion of road safety for those who travel by bicycle. It is with this spirit that the committee of the Longarone-Tre Cime di Lavaredo stage and Longarone Fiere Dolomiti have promoted a series of meetings in schools to explain some precautions to adopt when traveling on two wheels. Traffic police officers and a cycling champion like Marzio Bruseghin took the chair.
The rider from Treviso, third in the 2008 Giro and winner of the time trial at the 2006 Italian Championship, conducted an awareness-raising course in the middle school of Longarone and Ponte nelle Alpi, accompanied by the men of the Stradale.
“We have tried to make the kids understand how important safety is for those who travel by bicycle” underlines Enrico De Bona, coordinator of the project for the Stage Committee. «The boys were thrilled to be able to compare themselves with a great champion. We thank the Traffic Police for the support given to this project.
The meetings in the schools will be followed by an afternoon of safety demonstrations, scheduled for Saturday 27 May (the day after the big stage that will arrive at the Tre Cime) at the Villaggio in rosa, in the exhibition spaces of Longarone Fiere Dolomiti, with the collaboration of the local police of Longarone and Belluno. At 2.30 pm there will be a skill course for the little ones, and at the end of the day the participants will receive a special license.
For the little ones, the two days of the Giro (Friday 26 and Saturday 27) will feature the Belluno Confartigianato workshops at the Fair, which will offer experiences of creative work with clay and wood, practical tests of pastry making, sewing and much other. Workshops reserved for schools on Friday, free admission on Saturday from 2 pm.
