The History of the Team
Birth of a Passion: 2001
Way back in 2001, a group of passionate cyclists from Brescia met with a common goal: to share their passion for two wheels and create a sense of community. It was an initiative born from the pure joy of cycling and the desire to have a recognizable identity while cycling through the streets.
Growth and Popularity: La Lume Team Bike
As the years passed, this group of friends grew in number and ambition, bringing a love of cycling to the entire community. Already in the second year of the Lume Team Bike, the number of members had grown to 146, demonstrating the growing popularity of these cycling initiatives.
Valle dell'Oro: A Great Success
One of the most significant moments was the organization of the 5 editions of the "Valle dell'Oro", a cycling event which saw the participation of numerous cyclists. This event attracted around 450 participants from outside the province, including cyclists from Trentino and Piedmont, demonstrating the ability to attract cyclists from different regions of Italy. This event was a real success and helped consolidate the reputation of the cycling team.
Franciacorta Circuit: Five Years of Passion
Another very important initiative was the "Circuito della Franciacorta," a cycle of cycling events that followed one another for five years in a row. This circuit has attracted cyclists from every corner of Italy, strengthening ties between the country's diverse cycling communities. It was an amazing way to share the passion for cycling with bike lovers from all over the country.
New Identity: The Change in ZIPPOPIU.it ASD
In 2011, the group took a significant step by changing the name from "Lume Team Bike" to "ZIPPOPIU.it ASD". This change marked a new phase and underlined the continuous evolution of their cycling spirit. The passion for cycling has been passed on from one generation to the next, with particular attention to the inclusion of families and future generations of cyclists.
