      Irrigating the vines, or more politely called a nature break.

        Note to self: avoid 2017 vintage chiantis

    Peeing yourself into lycra is one thing, into woollen shorts it’s something else entirely.

    Great stuff! Thanks for sharing. I was fortunate to ride the big one back in 2014 when it was (grazie Dio!) not wet, as well as the spring version a time or two plus the California edition this year. These events always remind me why it was I took up cycling in the first place. W EROICA and all the other bici d’epoca events worldwide!

    Best bike ride in the world. was there for the 2nd time this year. DNF’ed the 209 at 135km and rode back to my hotel in Siena as i had missed the 2nd last feed zone and would for sure miss the last one + be redirected at 180k to asfalth roads. Should have gone for the 135k route this year and regreted all the way up the del Bosce gravel climb to Montalcino.

    Will be back again though, and hopefully in better shape (hardly any training this year due to work and a broken elbow and wrist mid summer.)

    Epic – event and images! That Wilier Triestina #4255 . . . deep sigh. : D Campagnolo Super Record, toe strap buttons and what might be Binda laminated straps! Super to see F. Gimondi on the Bianchi.
