A Walk in Nizza

Exploring history, food, and culture between the Belbo river and the vineyard hills of Monferrato

Bicycle show in Nizza Monferrato

| 5 Comments

The San Carlo Fair is the major “off season” event in Nizza Monferrato – and in recent years, cultural or historical events have been proposed side-by-side with the traditional animals and tools market and vicarious celebrations.
This year in particular, the Foro Boario meeting hall hosted a small exhibition of bicycles – once both a working tool and a sports and leisure activity.
We took advantage of a rainy lunch-break to go and catch a few shots without the interference of other visitors.

Tourist Tip: if you are planning a visit to an exhibition, consider going there at lunch hours – most of the other visitors will be somewhere eating, and you’ll have the exhibition all to yourself.

  1. Nice that you found an interesting bicycle show! I’m always looking for little side excursions like that.

  2. Good tip about going during the lunch hour!

  3. Fun. I’ve never heard of a bicycle show.

    • Bicycles used to be an important tool in country living, in the past.
      And the event should also have included a historical bicycle race, that was canceled because of the rain.
