Oh, does that bring back memories for Larry! The beautiful woman, the gorgeous bicycle -- He doesn't remember, were there any pictures of the wonderful food? Ted Costantino and Chris Koch produced a wonderful magazine each month -- one that's not been duplicated since. Thamks for rekindling the memory!ReplyDelete

Bicycle Guide was one of the best all around bike mags ever printed.
In the oct. 1986 Bicycle guide was a story about a gentleman living in Italy while working there. It describes his walking into a bike shop, meeting some of the local riders, selecting a bike and joining them on a ride.ReplyDelete
My question is this. Where could one find a reprint of this story? I wish I had hung onto this issue as it was one of my personal favorites.
