So my planning for L'Eroica 2011 begins. L'Eroica is a 205 km ride through the Tuscan country side on Vintage bikes on asphalt and "Strade Bianchi", packed clay and gravel roads. I found a 1985 Colnago Master through A Bicycle Odyssey and Tony has been helping me size it and get it ready for the trip. Outfitted with Vittoria Pave's, new toe clips and 1976 Classic - Vittoria Shoes.
This jaunt in Chianti is only the start of the trip. I am planning a 400 - 450 km tour from Gaiole in Chianti through Liguria, Emilia-Romagna ending in Milano. Destinations are still in planning but hopefully I can work this all out soon. More to come.
