With this blog entry I will close my almost 3 year cycling adventure in Italy. It has been an incredible experience. I will dearly miss all of my friends here, especially everyone in Gruppo 1 who adopted me, and Eros Poli with whom I had memorable rides in France and an incredible visit to the Tour de France.
Our flight back to the United States is at the end of this month. The next two weeks will be very busy getting things organized for the big move back to our home in northwestern New Jersey. I'm looking forward to seeing old friends, and making new friends. If you see me on the roads with my Gruppo 1 jersey make sure you say hello.
I'm planning on continuing my blog once we get settled in. I think all my Italian friends will be intrigued about cycling in the U.S. Hopefully, they will come to visit.
