We're here at our northern Italian HQ, sorting through our stuff before we load up and head down to Sicily for the winter. But first, we'll pop over to Lombardia to see the "Race of the Falling Leaves" as they call it. Meanwhile, we're taking full advantage of the summer-like weather. The vineyards are taking on a golden hue and the sunlight has that special fall quality while the temps have been in the low 80's in mid-afternoon. Here are some photos from just one of the loops we've mapped around the area. These are part of More Monferrato and our self-guided Taste of Piedmont and both Vineyards to the Sea and Best of Piedmont will let you enjoy some of the same great cycling, scenery and tastes if you join us for one of those. If there's a heaven on earth for cyclists, this could be it!
