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.
