    Hi senior bikers! Looking for 4 to 6 more bicyclists for an easy, leisure daily pace doing the heel of the boot over 14+ days through vineyards, olive groves, quaint villages, wine tasting, etc. Some years ago I met this senior couple who have put together trips for over 20 years. We did Normandie France and the Netherlands in 2001 and 2002 respectively -- 20 days for each. Great experiences! Easy going group. No 5 star accomodations. We do B&B's, Hotels, Hostels, to keep the price attractive! My bike partner and I just bought folding Bike Friday's for this Italy trip, which is planned for mid September through mid October, 2005. We need at least 8 committed bikers, prefer 10. We have 4 now and want YOU to come along! If you're interested I'll send you a flyer with costs and a few more details. Come have fun! Edmond.

    LOL......I sat here for a few minutes fantasizing about riding the backroads of Italy and wondering why I couldn't go. Then I remembered seeing a similar offer, wondering further how that first ride went...must of been good because they're at it again. Then checked the date.

    Oh well. Anyway, sounds lotsa fun.
