Do you know Celeste? Bianchi bicycles are traditionally painted Celeste, a turquoise color also known as Bianchi Green. Contradictory myths say Celeste is the color of the Milan sky, the eye color of a former queen of Italy for whom Edoardo Bianchi made a bicycle (the crowned eagle of the company logo is an adaptation of the former royal crest) and that it was a mixture of surplus military paint. The shade has changed over the years, sometimes more blue, then more green. Regardless of your favorite origin story, it has come to symbolize the oldest bicycle manufacture's passion and tradition.
We are hosting a Bianchi only ride...This will be a "No Drop Ride" for up to 40 miles. All styles and ages of Bianchi's (and owners for that matter) are welcome to join the Sprockets crew for a morning filled with a Celeste colored glow...
