A bike ride to open the Via d'Acqua Nord (Northern Waterway)

5 July

A bike ride to open the Via d'Acqua Nord (Northern Waterway): Starting point in 6 Municipalities and then access to Expo Milano


The occasion is the opening of Via D'Acqua Nord (Northern Waterways). The idea is to ride all together on our bikes from the Villoresi Channel along 8 km, crossing the Groane Park. This is the initiative launched to involve everybody in an open-air bike festival with families and fun, in the real spirit of Expo Milano 2015. The start is in Garbagnate Milanese, Rho, Arese, Lainate, Bollate and Pero.
