Antimafia Bike Tour in Palermo, Italy
The old town, the waterfront, Via Libertà, the 'Falcone Tree' Memorial: pedal along 12 kilometers between the center and the outskirts to discover the city that is reborn and will never forget its past.
Ride your bike along the alleys of Palermo and by the docks of the harbour
Earn who Falcone and Borsellino were and why they mean so much for the Sicilians
Savour a handmade and award-winning gelato, totally 'mafia-free'
Food and drinks
Riding through the pedestrian areas of the old town center of Palermo and along the cycle lanes that connect it with the outskirts, you will discover how Palermo is changing 'inside and outside', healing from the wounds inflicted by the violence of the Mafia which reached its peak with the massacres of 1992.
This tour is a tribute to the memory of heroes like the prosecutors Falcone and Borsellino, whose murders pushed the Sicilian people to react against the Mafia and inspired collective action of a whole generation of antimafia campaigners. Young people today are still committed to improving society and making change, volunteering in grassroots movements like Libera and Addiopizzo.
The terrain is mainly flat, mostly on cycle paths and bike lanes. Nevertheless, it is an urban bike tour, so please expect to ride on roads opened to vehicular traffic as well. We recommend that all the participants, especially children, are comfortable in riding the bike in town.
