LA PEDALS DE CLIP
Classic cycling through the Penedès, Barcelona-Tarragona
15-16 MAY 2021
CLASSIC CYCLING - SANT MARTÍ SARROCA
La Pedals de Clip reprogrammed for 2021
It’s been days since the organization we have been going around how our beloved Clip Pedals will be at the end of September. We have many doubts about being able to give what the organization has given all the previous years, we would like to have a good reception without crowds or masks or thermometers, to be able to go out together, freedom of movement and to embrace each other, shared aid stations, good arrival without distances and share the fair with peace of mind, good snacks and snacks on arrival as usual, tributes to our guests, food at the end of the test, etc …
The norms established by the authorities, Federation and organizations (very logical at the moment due to the covid19) makes us think and believe that we will not be able to give everything we have given in all previous editions.
Although we have freedom of movement throughout the territory, it limits for fear to many participants of the State and foreigners the power to attend, and to those who attend we want to be able to guarantee all the security and tranquility of the world, we do not want to be protagonists or responsible for a possible outbreak and harm participants, organizers, family members and the general public.
We have already been forced to postpone the first date of May 10 in full confinement and thinking that this would happen soon we decided to change the date for September 27, but the truth is that we have previously decided from the Club and agreed with the City Council de Sant Martí Sarroca postpone the test for the month of 15 /16 May 2021 and be able to offer all the participants and visitors everything you deserve and to be able to celebrate the tenth anniversary in style.
We want you to gain strength, enjoy the summer and then the winter, charge batteries, tune up your bikes, look for that jersey you like, prepare with enthusiasm the next Pedals …
This obligatory parenthesis will also serve us to better prepare the march, the clock and the 2021 fair and to welcome you with open arms next spring.
To the participants registered to the March and the Time Trial we will keep the number and registration order for 2021 (we hope you are the majority), we also give the opportunity to whoever wants to recover the registration money can do so by sending an email to email@example.com requesting it, in this case we hope that you are few and most of you give us your trust and understanding for everything we are going through.
With all our love.
La Pedals de Clip
Cycle route for classic road bikes in the Comarca del Gran Penedès between Barcelona and Tarragona
What is Clip Pedals?
It is a March or exclusive cycle route for classic road bikes. (Regulation)
Bicycles previous to the year 1987, with Clip Pedals (rastrales), brake wiring above the handlebars and shifters in the frame.
You can also use bicycles with frames of new construction but always with retro style and equipped with original components of the time (change, handlebars, pedals, etc …)
The March will have two routes, the long one of about 80 km and the short one of about 49 km, through the region of Penedès in Catalonia, between the provinces of Barcelona and Tarragona, land of wines and cavas. For narrow roads, asphalted rural tracks with little traffic and some short stretches of easy dirt tracks between vineyards, farmhouses and warehouses (it is recommended to take the tires in good condition and swollen).
This type of classic cycle touring has been going on for many years in other European countries, especially in Italy and France, which have been organizing marches of this type for many years and bringing together many cyclists.
It is not a competition, on the contrary, it is an encounter-concentration to enjoy the bicycle, the landscape and make friends.
In this cycling race it is recommended to wear clothes, footwear and helmet of the time, all to give a more classic look and return to the past.
We will have the classic vehicle company of the Moto clàssics del Penedès.
The objective of the Pedals de Clip is the promotion and use of the classic bicycle. To be able to honor ex-cyclists who made us vibrate so much, sharing with them the route and emotions.
