Sunday 20 September 2020, the Bike Day in the territory of the Black Rooster. A day dedicated to all cycle enthusiasts who, immersed in the natural beauty of the route, can decide to stop at the open cellars and experience a visit with tasting and then savor the dishes that the local restaurants have dedicated to them .

In addition, musical entertainment and other initiatives are planned in the squares of Greve and Radda in Chianti: during the day, next to the various statues of the Black Rooster placed on the various recommended routes, the public can take a souvenir photo and post it on Facebook, tagging the page of the Granfondo del Gallo Nero, or on Instagram, inserting the #chianticlassico and #gallonero. The authors of the 8 most beautiful photos taken wearing the Chianti Classico shirt will receive a Black Rooster mystery box at home.

19 September 2020, the tribute to Gino Bartali. The Bike Day wants to pay homage to one of the most important figures in the history of our country, not only cycling, Gino Bartali, whose memory will be inaugurated on Saturday 19 September (12.00) by the Florentine artist Silvano Porcinai near the fountain of Panzano in Chianti, where the great Tuscan cyclist used to stop to fill his bottle during the many workouts he carried out in the Gallo Nero territory.

Panzano will be the first stop on a path in memory of "Ginettaccio" which will end at the Casa Chianti Classico in Radda in Chianti, where the Consortium in collaboration with the Gino Bartali Cycling Museum has set up an exhibition of some Bartali memorabilia lent to its own from the Bridge Museum to Ema.
