Hello from Varese (Italy)

Hi there,
I'm from Varese (Italy).
I'd like improve my English language with native English speakers, so it is better having the possibility to do it with interesting arguments for me as cycling.

I have a carbon frame road bike equipped Shimano 105 set up by a local artisan, an alloy mountain bike Rockrider equipped Sram and a 20 years old bike that I us for going in the town.

I live near to the Shrine of Madonna del Ghisallo - the Patroness of cyclists.
La Madonna del Ghisallo is venerated by international cycling as patroness of cycling and the place has become the focus of many riders' pilgrimages.

I live close to Varese (Italy) and I sometimes come cross Aussies while they are going by bike.
The AIS European Training Centre (ETC) for Australian athletes is located on the shore of Lake Varese.
Home away from home: Varese, the AIS and Orica-GreenEDGE | CyclingTips
if you are looking forward to a friendly road cycling area I will post some routes around Italian Lakes here so you can come and enjoy yourself. GPS Varese Cycling Holiday Italy Lakes

Robert20, where are you from ?

Sorry, I'm not fluent in English language. I don't understand what you say about bike frame.
