Cycling in Italy, October 2

Two ends of the cycling spectrum took place yesterday: the L'Eroica, a vintage bike event, in the Chianti region and the Prosecco Cycling Classic, a granfondo, in Valdobbiadene.

If you were at either one share your story with us.

  1. Ciao Angel(o) Our story's up in a couple of parts on the CycleItalia blog. l'Eroica's a great event, we'll bet the folks there had more fun than the folks in the other photos, it was the most fun we've had in a big, organized ride in many years...and we didn't even do much of it. But there's always next time!

  2. I have posted a lengthy account of my Eroica experience on my blog. It was a wonderful event but the 132 km ride is very hard. I can't imagine completing the one that is over 200 km in a single day!
