Many say Italians are at the vanguard of bicycle design and engineering. After all, bicycles have long been associated with Italy, with the oldest bicycle company, Bianchi, originating from Italy in 1885.

This year, Concorso Italiano will host a display for Italian bicycles. Welcoming all Italian bikes, from the early 1900s to current models, attendees are invited to witness the transformation and honing of these non-motorized transporters over the decades.

Concorso Italiano will take place August 17, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. at the Laguna Seca Golf Ranch in Monterey, California.
