It’s hard to believe a year has gone by since I spent a week riding in Italy. I don’t generally go back and re-read my posts (mostly because they are riddled with spelling errors, typos and inaccuracies) but if my posts about The Campagnolo Experience were a physical journal I could hold in my hands, it would be dog-eared and stained with wine, spaghetti sauce, and bike grease.
On days when I am down, I only have to open the pages of this journal and relive the sights, sounds and tastes of Italy. Thank you again to Thomson Bike Tours, Campagnolo, and all the people I met from all over the world who I am pleased to call friends for life. I have no doubt fate will bring us together again one day.
Here are just a few of my favourite photos from the trip, taken by the talented Pablo Moreno, who looks like he should be on the other side of the camera.
I don’t usually re-read posts either but I’ve read your Campagnolo adventure posts several times. Being a life long Campy fanatic I desperately wanted to do the Experience but, alas, only one small thing kept me from it, money. You see, I didn’t have much to spare because I had spent it on a Pinarello Prince with full Super Record 11speed groupo. (I’ve since acquired a Pinarello Dogma with Campy electronic shifting, so I don’t have any spare money this year either!) But I have enjoyed the shit out of your posts of your week in Italy. Since I couldn’t make it the next best thing was living the Experience vicariously through your writings. I’ve since read all of your posts but the Campy Experience was by far the most enjoyable. Thanks.
Just read your Campy blog. Wonderful. Thank you. So envious. I am currently building a commuter bike using a custom made frame from Marinoni with as much Campagnolo on it as I can manage.
