Now that the global financial crunch has put paid to any visit to the Chianti region of Italy to do the famous L'Eroica
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcTV9FBHOlM), in the foreseeable future, a cycling buddy & I have decided on the next best thing; to bring the L'Eroica here, well to Noosa, anyway.
A possible route has been mapped; 116km, including several sectors of 'strade bianche'.......
Beginning in Noosaville the we pass through several country towns with bakeries, coffee shops & even country pubs for those so inclined. Basically low traffic roads & no traffic lights.
The idea is just a fun randonneur, not a race.
Now set for 18 December 2011.
A couple of routes are under consideration & the final one will be posted up soon.
The same basic premise at the Italian version:
Steel framed cycles, preferably vintage; no carbon
