No borders for cyclists in Europe

Cross the Alps on a bike along a 600 km ride from Munich to Ferrara: the only randonnée that crosses four different countries. From green Bavaria, in Germany, to the Austrian climbs in Tirol, Val Venosta in Trentino Alto Adige, Bozen and then the downhill ride to the south along the Adige, via Trento, and along the banks of the Mincio to Mantua, then the Po and, finally, Ferrara.

Rando Imperator Munich – Ferrara is the 600 km randonnée following the cycle path on the Via Claudia Augusta, the ancient roman road connecting the Danube with the Po and the Adriatic sea. A unique track to make history and feel like emperors.

You will gain the ACP brevet and important points for the Paris-Brest-Paris 2023 by participating in the Rando Imperator, which is officially registered on the Audax Italia calendar.
