Ivan Basso is Lime's new Ambassador
“I took part in the Giro d’Italia for the first time in 1999 and since then many things have changed in cycling and in the way one can enjoy a ride. A constant, however, is road safety that cyclists and all users must observe, without being a danger to themselves and to others. Because the road belongs to everyone and anyone who wants to enjoy it must respect and be respected. (...) We believe that Lime electric scooters and bicycles are a great alternative to cars and allow people to move faster.”
- Ivan Basso
Lime & EOLO Kometa
Ivan Basso is currently the Team Manager of EOLO KOMETA and has the goal of giving back to cycling and to his team what cycling has taught him. It is with the same spirit that the collaboration between EOLO KOMETA and Lime was born to promote and encourage the culture of mobility aimed at road safety education and sustainability, involving Ivan Basso as the protagonist.
For the 106th edition of the Giro d’Italia, from 6 to 28 May 2023, Lime provided the team with scooters that helped athletes and staff in their movements between one race and another, creating a bridge between the world of micromobility sharing and that of cycling.
