Piedmont Cycling Resort gets PEZ'd (review)

Piedmont Cycling Resort gets PEZ'd

Click HERE to read the review on PezCyclingNews.

We were happy to host Chris and his dad, Bob at the end of the season this year.

One thing not included in their review was the opportunities to ride in bici d'epoca (vintage) events in this area. In 2019 three events will be held close enough to the resort that we can be back for dinner!

As Chris and his father discovered, the Monferrato region is truly an undiscovered jewel in the world of cycling, wine and food.

Velonews featuring our friends

Above: Heather enjoys one of the great rides at Piedmont Cycling Resort

VELONEWS has a feature about some of our friends and official suppliers: Favaloro, SMP and Vittoria Shoes. While they mistakenly describe Favaloro as only an e-bike maker we think the piece captures the essence of Italian cycling products. Check it out HERE.

New car logos are here!

We just received our new magnetic logo signs for the car/van in Italy!
These will fit nicely on the doors. We're working on a new Piedmont Cycling Resort jersey with our friends at Nalini. We're planning a light blue color like this with the same logo and sponsors logos with our partner Hotel Ariotto's logo on the back.

More details soon!

NALINI-MOA Sport Official supplier to CycleItalia/Piedmont Cycling Resort

Click HERE to see a great story about our friends at Nalini/Moa Sport.

Many of you know we've recently switched official suppliers after many years with Italy's other major clothing maker.

Why? We can't say anything negative about our former supplier as we're still wearing a lot of their kit, but as that company was taken over by the owner's children our long-term relationship suffered. Combine this with our ever-growing relationship with Albabici, the importer/distributor of Nalini and a switch soon became a no-brainer. Read about our visit HERE.

So far they've created two great jerseys for us, our retro blue like this

 and a revised version of our original green/white/red classic.

This one you can buy HERE

We're also working on a new one for Piedmont Cycling Resort.

Thanks PEZ!

RIP Dario Pegoretti

RIP Dario Pegoretti

Master frame builder Dario Pegoretti is no longer with us as of today. Uncle Larry was fortunate enough to meet him briefly one time. More details on that can be found here.

You might enjoy these two videos on Youtube, especially

while this one

has some rather lame interview questions, you do get to hear Pegoretti speaking in English.

Pedala forte, mangia bene!

Pedala forte, mangia bene!

Yes, this is a tattoo! A total surprise when we saw this photo of our slogan inked onto the calf of a client who joined us awhile back.

Needless to say, we are flattered.

Join us and find out for yourself why someone would have our slogan permanently written on their body.
