    Greetings from Orlando

    Hello from East Orange County. Moved back to Orlando in '93 with my 92 Bianchi Virata and the poor, neglected thing just sat in the garage for 15 years until I started to take adavantage of the bike path right behind my house. This past April I started riding again....now, I'm faithfully on the path at 7 AM and do 21 miles every morning in about 1 hour 20 minutes. I can't tell you what a difference it has made----lost weight and just feel good about myself! I've looked at other bikes but the Virata just has this traditional look that I really like----besides, there's practically no wear or tear on it from all the years of inactivity.
