These Were Good Times
I really had good times riding in France with Eros Poli and my friends from Gruppo 1 of San Massimo, Verona. Riding with "Monsieur Mont Ventoux" on Ventoux, Galibier, Alpe d'Huez and Izoard are moments I'll always remember. Here are Eros, myself, Paolo, Daniela and Beppe next to what must be one of the most cycling related photographed spots in the word.
Eros, having organized many tours for Italian riders, has now organized his first tours for international clients. Of particular interest is the "Special Tour de France" tour although the "Special Giro d'Italia" tour shouldn't be overlooked as it will finish in Verona this year. For Europeans not too far from Italy the Mont Ventoux 2010 3 day weekend tours, offered on 3 weekends, would also be a nice opportunity to climb Mont Ventoux with Eros.
There are still slots available for the Special Tour de France which will include watching stages of the Tour de France, climbs of the Col de la Madeleine, Col de la Croix de Fer, Col du Galibier, and Mont Ventoux. Then a transfer to Treviso, Italy, for some riding and concluding the tour with particpation in "lapinarello Cycling Marathon" (formerly named the Granfondo Pinarello).
Information on Eros' tours can be found at http://www.eros-poli.com/
