Somethings Wicked this Way Come

Somethings Wicked this Way Come

As if in some desperate attempt to make me like her again, Not Italy has been issuing forth awesome bike-related announcements with almost the same regularity as Rob Ford issues insincere apologies to the media. First came the announcement that…

An Afternoon Ride in Not Italy

An Afternoon Ride in Not Italy

Here in Not Italy we do not hide from shitty weather, rather we embrace it with enthusiasm, fearlessness, and 40 layers of technical fabrics. Not Italy kind of looks like an Ivan Eyre painting this time of year.We rode along the…
