    Cycling in Italy at the L'Eroica (Video)

    I'm not sure if it's been posted before. I searched with no specific results.

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    I think it was posted earlier but not in a dedicated thread.

    As a pro in film, I think it's advanced-amateur level work*...but that doesn't matter. The content is great and it's beautiful.



    *in terms of cycling, I am far below advanced-amateur! But I'd love a chance to shoot something like this.

    I remember when that came out, but didn't watch all of it. Made for nice viewing while eating my bagel this morning. Thanks!

    This is a great video, worth watching again and again.

    L'Eroica is less than 2 months away, and I shall be there! I'll be riding my 1974 Legnano Gran Premio on the 200km course along with my son on a 1983 Bianchi Nuovo Racer. It should be a reat time!!! We may need and new subcategory of C&V to handle all of my posts and pics after the ride.

    Ciao!

    I hate it when they change websites. http://www.eroicafan.it/index.php?lang=it

    So before, on just plain eroica.it, they had a section with pictures of the bikes.

    Anyone have a link to that?

    I can't find it.
