No photo for this entry as it would be yours truly with a sad face as Heather's flown off to Greece and I'm heading home tomorrow morning. All the bikes and equipment have been cleaned and put away for the season and we're eagerly anticipating 2010 already, if you can believe it! Tentative dates will be coming soon in the next edition of La Gazzetta dello CycleItalia but for now we can let you know the tour names and the order in which we'll run them---we begin with Campania's Cilento Coast followed by Umbria & Marche, both based out of Rome. We'll return to our HQ, Ariotto to produce a new itinerary, Vineyards to the Sea followed by Paradise in Piedmont. Emilia-Romagna is on the schedule before Legendary Climbs of the Giro East. We plan to conclude with Legendary Climbs of the Giro West, a combination of our previous Piedmont Alps and Savoy Alps itineraries with some new lodgings and daily routes. To all those who joined us for 2009 we say MILLE GRAZIE...and for those who could not, we look forward to seeing you in 2010! Don't forget about the chance to win the TORELLI/CAMPAGNOLO bicycle---all you need to do to get a chance is reserve your place on a 2010 CycleItalia guided vacation before December 31, 2009. Ciao for now!
