Here is a ride report I posted in Bikeforums. Along with trying to race masters as much as possible, I have a thing for riding vintage bikes. For those of you who don’t know, L’Eroica is an event in Italy that takes place the first Sunday in October. There are 4 routes varying in length from 38 to 205 km, half of the distance is on white gravel roads, and you have to ride on a bike older than 1987. Matt W (who lived in Siena for a year) put me in touch with his friend Carlo and we did a few rides with a local. Enjoy!
So, this is my third time at L'Eroica. The first time I did it for fun, the second time my goal was to break 12 hours (205km) and this time was to do it for speed. Not race pace do or die, just a steady pace, and minimal stopping at the check points.
