Velodiva and I will fly from San Francisco to Rome on Saturday (we may “fly-over” Missouri) to commence a 10 day tandem cycling tour of Elba and Tuscany organized by Santana Cycles. Our trip includes a pre-tour of Rome before we board a ferry to Elba for a couple of days of cycling then returning to the mainland for the balance of the tour. There will be 50 tandem teams and we are looking forward to some great cycling, meeting new people and fantastic food and wine. We will post some pics.
Upon our return from Italy, we will drive the next day to Los Angeles (no “flyover” states this time) with our singles for an overnight and a possible ride in Orange County on Saturday driving on to San Diego. We lived in San Diego / La Jolla for 16 years and plan to do some of the rides we did before.
