We can safely say that cycling as a sport in Elba has been one success after another; maybe it's because in Elba the cycling tradition goes back many years, in fact in the 1800s cycling was one of the most common ways to get about, as well as by donkey.
Practically everybody in Elba has a bicycle, and this sport has become even more popular in recent years, so you can be sure of meeting up with a cyclist anywhere on the island, even if he lives in an area that might seem complicated to get about in by bike.
And this explains why cycling as a sport is so popular and why fans are always coming up with new ideas: numerous competitions, many cycling fans who follow the races and also cycle along the roads on the Island of Elba.
In the 1980s, many races, organised and held by the numerous sports associations on the island, were held along the roads of Elba, and in 1993 the Tour of Italy started off in Elba, with two half laps on the first day: one trial on line and a one time trial covered by Moreno Argentin and another by Maurizio Fondriesi with the first pink jersey being awarded to Moreno Argentin. Most of the races today are by mountain bike that also include different disciplines, and in 1994 the first World Mountain Bike Cup was held in Monte Calamita.
