  1. We have no "bici di epoca" over here yet but this is on our "to do" list for the future. We'll be busy with our Legendary Climbs of the Giro tour at this time in any case but its wonderful to see more events of this type come along - they really seem to foster the atmosphere that got us into cycling in the first place all those years ago.
