What is the 2VS?

The Two Volcano Sprint is a single-stage, unsupported bicycle challenge starting and finishing at south Italy’s two iconic volcanoes, Mt. Vesuvio and Mt. Etna. The route crosses the panoramic Amalfi and Cilento coastline before heading into the Appenine mountains and descending finally into Sicily. With just over 1,ooo kilometers and 24,000+ meters of elevation gain, the 2VS is a challenge for even the strongest of cyclists.

When

The 2VS 2020 starts on Sunday, October 18th,  at 05:30am. 

The Rules

As with all self-supported adventure races, the rules are simple. Riders must cycle the fixed GPX route completely self-powered and unassisted, carrying their own gear and acquiring any food, water, resources or lodgings at commercially available services. Riders must carry a GPS tracker, that should be turned on at all times. Drafting is not permitted unless riding in a pair. To make the finisher’s party, riders must complete the course within 110 hours. There is no prize money or reward for riders except the satisfaction of having pushed their legs and limits, explored another part of this planet and contributed towards improving the lives of people living on it.

The Goal

The Two Volcano Sprint is a not-for-profit event promoting eco-sustainability in south Italy. Thanks to sponsors covering organizational costs, 100% of the riders’ entry fees, after tracker rental, go towards an annual sponsorship grant. Every year, the 2VS association offers this grant to a project, initiative or service that positively impacts nature preservation, environmental sustainability, or climate action, while boosting economic growth for local communities

Annual sponsorship award project

The Davida Association is a non-profit company that has recently started a collection project purchasing food parcels to be distributed throughout the Napoli/Salerno region where there is most need. The 2 Volcano Sprint was created to reinforce this not-for-profit organisation, using participants’ registration fees to fund an annual project focused on eco-sustainability in southern Italy. In light of this global pandemic, the funds raised from the first 2VS edition last November, together with those from this year’s registrations, are going towards supporting families and individuals whose livelihoods have been worst affected by the Covid-19 lockdown.
       A €50 package includes foodstuffs that can sustain a family of 4 living under difficult conditions for a week. Each of these packages is important not only for their fundamental supplies, but also the powerful symbolic value they carry, knowing there are people out there who care. The parcels are purchased and delivered by us personally to accredited distribution organizations, without any intermediary.
        In these trying times, helping others in need is its own reward. If you are not able to participate in the cycling event, but would like to contribute towards our project, donating is simple: click on the button below to donate.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
