The association, with seat in Milan, puts its goals since its creation about the important topic of the road safety, to defend all the users of bikes. ACCPI is promoting its black and yellow logo with the minimal distance of 1.5 meters that every means of transport must keep to pass a cyclist in total safety.

ACCPI invited all the Amateur Cycling Associations to print on the left pocket of their own jerseys the logo created for the road safety to teach to all the users of the roads how to behave when somebody meets a bicycle. The Director of the Giro Rosa Giuseppe Rivolta and the whole staff of the International race included in the Women's World Tour are very sensible about the topic od road safety and the respect of every cyclist, even if the bike is not used for a race. The logo will be on every car used during the race and on its promotional material.

"In these years we involved not only cycling teams or organizers but schools, local and regional administrations, sport and touristic associations and many people. It has been a long, hard work but for an important and difficult race like the Giro Rosa it has been useful." - Says Alessandra Cappellotto, the first italian Women's Road World Champion and now representer of the women cyclists in the highest category, vicepresident of the ACCPI and responsible of Women's Cycling in the CPA, the International Association of Cyclists.

"After the meeting with the Italian Minister of Transports in charge Danilo Toninelli, the measure of 1.5 meters is in the basic text of the reform of the Traffic Law. I can really say that the team composed by Marco Cavorso, Maurizio Fondriest, Paola Gianotti and the ACCPI has reached many "goals of the day". The biggest victory is when we will seen these road signs on the Italian roads, because we are sure that the users of the road will learn how important is to respect the weaker user. Thanks to the Giro Rosa Iccrea, I can't wait to see the show that the greatest cyclists in the world will offer through the Italian roads."

To know the details of the important activity of the ACCPI and to sign the new campaign #SiamoSullaStessaStrada to protect the life of everybody uses the bike in the Italian territory, in the memory of Michele Scarponi, it's possible to see the official website: www.accpi.it
