August 2015 Theme Day: Bicycle


A big bicycle in Corvara, to publicize the "Maratona dles Dolomites" - Marathon of the Dolomites.

This year we had the 29th edition of the "Maratona dles Dolomites" which was held July 5, 2015.
It has been a big event with more than 9,000 bikers and, of course, bicycles.

Visit the official site of this event here.
What Wikipedia says is here.

Each 1st day of the month is "Theme Day" of the City Daily Photo Community.
