EROICA REPORT #1
We have left Paris by train on October 1rst to Firenze.
Crazy night (…)
We were supposed to arrive with an heavy rain, but it was sunny as hell!
We had a small tour in Firenze early in the morning and we stopped for a breakfast.
Then we left Firenze to get to Gaiole in chianti (were the Eroica race takes place)
The ride wasn’t easy : only hills, but the landscapes were such awesome !
We arrived in Gaiole and the Eroica Bicycles Flee Market was loaded of people.
We went to the stadium to set up our camping tent and have a shower.
The Eroica race started on sunday morning.
We did the 75kms route with our friends the Savarino’s broz.
Crazy day : more than 3000 participants, crazy styles, cool people, and so many beautiful in the eyes !
The Eroica is just amazing : Tuscany is magic.
We tried to take pictures (we shot a lot), but you don’t know how to manage when riding:
You want to shoot everything, and/or having a camcorder to film everything too…
We have been hit by the rain when we were reaching the Strada Bianchi : Everyone got dirty but the race became nicer then !
This was such a great week-end !
You should get ready for the next one if you didn’t come.
We are already setting up our tent TRUCK for 2011 edition.
So, here is a selection of pictures for now
(more to upload tomorrow)
