    Ciao

    I've been looking around this forum for about a half hour and I think it is wonderful. I'm a teacher in Northern Italy working for the the U.S. Gov't. I commute about 8 miles a day and am interested in touring. I've done some touring with friends (including car ), but I'm setting up with gear to go self-contained. My big plan for this summer is to hop the train up to Hiedelburg and bike to Munich.
    I ride a Scott treking bike. I know alot of you are probablly rolling your eyes wondering why I bought American in the holy land of bikes, but I honestly had a hard time finding a bike that I could outfit with racks, panniers, and fenders that would fit 6'3" me, AND the price was right, plus I LIKE IT.
    I know, I'm too defensive.
    I wouldn't mind meeting someone on line that has toured Germany, Austria, Northern Italy. Also, tell me about touring equipment I should avoid.
    Thanks.

    Hey there, I was stationed in Vicenza from 87-89 with the 3/325th battallion of the 82nd airborne. I flew ouit of Aviano many times with a parachute on my back headed for Germany, Turkey, and other equally appealing places.

    Welcome to the board!

    I used to ride my bike up to Monte Belluna, Verona, Venice(once) and to Padova. Great countryside there. I'd get way lost out there now it has been so long.
