The 2012 Transalp Tour started as a stand-alone charity-project of the German Rotary Club Villingen-Schwenningen Mitte. Based on a spontanuous idea to visit our Contact Club RC Bergamo Citta Alta in Italy for our 10-year charter-anniversary, we paved the way into a repeating annual roadbike event including rotarians from central Europe for a common charity project.
On Sunday, June, 3rd an international group of roadbikers started in Villingen for a 6-day touristic tour passing some of the most scenic alpine passes on the way to the rotarian partner club in Bergamo. Unforgettable: experiencing the interior of the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz by bike - not to speak of the genial arrival at the Piazza Vecchia. The detailed info-brochure including all stages is availble in the download section.
All revenues of this Tour have been donated to the Dianino-Foundation, which is supporting families with children suffering from diabetes in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. www.dianino.de
