DIT2021: 42TH INTERNATIONAL TIBER DESCENT

PROGRAM

For those wishing to participate to the TiberTour from the beginning or after the first stage, it is preferable to arrive the night before at the place of accommodation (preferably by 6:00 pm), so to have time to seek information, prepare and meet the group. Only as a last option you can arrive the morning of departure, preferably by 7:00 am (note that in the morning the phones of the organizers only respond to service calls).

In general, in the morning the 3 sports groups (paddlers, cyclists, walkers) depart from the place of the overnight stay at 8:00 am. By that time, you must have had breakfast and procured supplies for a picnic lunch.

In the transfer vehicle convoys, you must of course comply with the rules of the road (remember to refuel in advance!). In order to allow other vehicles to pass the convoy, to comply with the limits for speed of those travelling with trailers, and for reasons of road safety, the convoy travels at a reduced speed: usually 50 km/h on ordinary roads and 80 km/h on the E45 highway.

Coaches will provide a shuttle return service to the day’s departure point for drivers who have notify their car to the day’s arrival point.

Dinner is usually organized around 7:00 pm at local clubs and is full and generous. Generally we are able to satisfy the demands of vegetarian meals. Whoever does not do the all-in registration and wants to join the dinner must book the day before.

Overnight stays (with one’s own equipment) can be spent in covered structures, which may be very simple and sometimes without hot showers. These are kindly provided by the municipalities en route. It is normally possible to sleep in one’s own tent or camper, if wished.

The organization of a travelling sport event is very complex. Participants should keep in mind that, in general, the organizers cannot be responsible for individual needs (but try to help in emergency).
