Next stop – L’Eroica

L’Eroica.  Pron: Le Roy E Ka.  

It seems like an eternity ago that I packed my bag and bike for Tuscany to ride the great event for the second time.

Peloton Cycling Tours are currently in Italy following the Giro – you can jump on their wheel for this years L’Eroica.  If you love food, wine, bikes and  a postcard panaroma view – it could be for you.

The week long cycling tour culminates with the L’Eroica ride, and also includes tours of wineries, galleries, great rides and a backstage pass to Tommasini.

This year the market day was under inches of rain, keeping away all but the hardcore and leaving doubts in the minds of those riding.  Yet, a day later the dark skies cleared and the rains settled the dust making for another amazing day in the saddle.

I had the good company of Gio / Granciclismo by my side again who is fluent in Australian, making for a great days dialogue.

More of the days dialogue accompany each photo in the gallery.

Italia – See you soon.
