Memory - /ˈmɛm(ə)ri/ The psychological processes of acquiring, storing, retaining, and later retrieving information. To remember, we need to know first - make an experience firsthand. Then we need this information paired with strong emotions - good or bad ones. The stronger they are, the better chance we recall them often and later in time. The Memory Bike aims to increase the awareness of the events and the places of WWI while linking those information to strong emotions. The result? Impress those places and their history upon the participants' memory forever.

The places We’re lucky enough to live in an awesome area to ride bikes. We’ve got roads and trails, climbs and flats, straight lines and nice bends. On top of that, we’ve got incredible military roads.  What is our fortune today is the heritage of sad events taking place in this very area more than one hundred years ago. We live on the territory where some of the fiercest front lines of the First World War were. The Memory Bike Adventure will take riders on Monte Grappa, Monte Pasubio and on the shores of Piave and on Altopiano di Asiago. The participants of the Festival will have a chance to explore the Altopiano extensively over three days of riding.

The idea We want to share our home trails and the incredible history of these places with many. They’re awesome to ride and interesting to explore. We also believe it’s important to keep their memory alive and to know their story. We strongly believe commemorating and remembering doesn’t need to involve sad celebrations. On the contrary, pairing them with a bit of struggle on the bike and a lot of fun on and off it will create the strongest memory ever.  That’s why the Memory Bike was born.
