Just arrived back home from my visit to the Cycle Show at Earls Court in London (see entries below). A little bit disappointed: it is cycling pornography – undeniably beautiful objects everywhere; brushed chrome this and carbon-fibre that… but little of practical use that will help me in my planning for next summer. I did like the bike in the picture below – a Bianchi Camaleonte 5 reference YOBE50I. A beautifully well-made bike and at “only” £875, not inaccessible….
planning on doing London To Rome on Bikes in June next year. Not sure
which route we will be taking yet but EV5 is certainly an option. You
may have also seen a route that is on the CTC website EU28 which looks
quite interesting as well.
…very long URL which I have abbreviated by typing this….
Hope to work out a more detailed map for you in a short while. Friends in Rome from Naturamica association are going to give you support on the Rome – Cassino leg.
