Genoa. At the start, Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 June, I travel with you, the cycling event of solidarity, promoted byFiab Association in collaboration withGraziElla Association.
Not only to let a visually impaired person experience the emotions that are felt with a bicycle trip, but also to sensitize public administrations on the issue of inclusiveness and invite them to invest and complete the cycle paths already present in the area. These are the reasons why he will leave Savona on Saturday morning a rickshaw accompanied by bicycles that will travel along the cycle paths up to Genoa.
Fiab’s proposal for Genoa: “A rickshaw instead of an electric taxi in the historic center”
The chosen itinerary is the coastal one between I’m going to Liguria e Genoa Boccadasse using all the paths and cycle lanes present, along a path that hopefully will soon become a safe and continuous cycle path thanks to the interventions planned for the Tyrrhenian cycle route.
“The cycle path from Genoa to Savona it is already largely existing ”- he declares Patrizia Vallarino (Fiab) – and it could be easily achieved with the commitment of the municipalities crossed. All the conditions are already in place to give Genoa – Savona also the value of support to those with a disability who want to access our beaches and this could give a very high and original quality to this part of the Tyrrhenian Sea “.
For this, along the way they will come met with several public administrators, to whom the message will be brought that inclusiveness is a resource, as well as a duty, for a region with a tourist vocation.
