2022 ride is here
IO DONO 2022 returns with its 7th edition.
To give continuity and testimony to the principles and values of the Gift for Life and to say thank you to those who have committed and are committed to defeat Covid-19.
On Sunday 21 August, at 09:30, as always, we will start from Lioni, Piazza della Vittoria.
After an initial flat stretch, we will climb up to the Quadrivio in Sant’Angelo dei Lombardi, near the Civil Hospital, where we will pay homage to all the health workers engaged in their daily mission to defend public health.
We continue as far as Taverne di Guardia dei Lombardi, where we will have a second quick stop for a flying refuel.
After having covered 29 km from the start, at 13:00 we will reach Andretta, where we will be welcomed in the town hall square and have a cheerful moment dedicated to the message of organ donation and sport.
At 2 p.m. we will leave for Conza della Campania, where we will arrive at 2.40 p.m. after having covered 12.40 km all on a gentle slope, in a unique landscape, passing the Conza/Cairano railway station, the Ofanto reservoir of the largest earthen dam in Europe, and the village of old Conza destroyed by the earthquake of 23.11.1980.
At 3.40 p.m., after covering only 4.50 km, but all uphill, we will be in Sant’Andrea di Conza, where we will also carry the event message for the first time.
At 4.00 p.m. we will leave for Teora, where we will arrive at 4.50 p.m. after covering 12.50 km all on the flat and on the crest, admiring the Sele valley on one side and the Ofanto valley on the other.
In the municipalities where we’ll stop, there will be no shortage of moments of awareness-raising, story-telling and discussion, and opportunities to get to know the territory and the great hospitality of the communities encountered.
The last 10.00 km will bring us back to Lioni, in Piazza della Vittoria, the starting and finishing place of IO DONO 2022 – VII Edition.
The table and graph show all the details of the route.
IO DONO, together with the colours of solidarity and sustainability, carries the colours of peace; to be there is to want and love each other; don’t think about it anymore: register.
Registration for the event is free of charge. Meals and drinks will be offered to all participants at the stops.
