How about this email I have just recieved from Claudio in Parma:
“Salve Andrew. I’m not really familiar with blogs and all this kind of things, but I’minterested in your idea to cycle the EV5 if I understood your palns. I Live near Parma and maybe I can help to find your way from Milan toBrindisi, and pedalling with you if you want. Ciao Claudio”
What a nice offer! I’ll have to find out more about Claudio so I’ll email him back today and start up a dialogue. I think he may have been the thirteenth person to vote over there on the right! PS: Claudi has an email address connected to the a website called Tuttinbici.org which appears to be the cycling association of the Reggio Emilia region of Italy. I’ll add it to my links!
