Have you ever dreamed of participating in a bici d’epoca event in Italy? Normally you’d need to come up with a vintage bicycle, navigate an Italian event entry form and scare up some vintage cycling duds. Let us take care of it all, including one of our “classic” steel bikes along with a vintage-style CycleItalia jersey and socks*. Though these bikes don’t conform entirely to the bici d’epoca requirements, the organizers have kindly made an exception for us – the rest of the vintage look is up to you!
Day 1 – Overnight flight to Milan or perhaps you’ve stayed on after our Legendary Climbs tour?
Day 2 – Arrive at Italy’s Malpensa (MXP) airport and meet our shuttle. We’ll have you back to our HQ in Monferrato and set up on one of our classic, all-steel bicycles in time for a warm-up ride before a sumptuous welcome dinner of piemontese specialties.
Day 3 – Why not sleep in, breakfast goes until 10 AM and you’ll be up early tomorrow.? More great riding in the Monferrato hills is available today, but don’t overdo it as the big event is tomorrow. Perhaps we’ll go out for pizza and gelato tonight, making for an early night so we can be fresh for tomorrow.
Day 4 – LA LANGAROLA. Morning departure for Barolo to sign in and get our schwag bags. Check out the stalls with vintage parts and bikes of all kinds – perhaps there’s inspiration for your own bici d’epoca for next time? Marvel at a trip back-in-time with the most gorgeous vintage bicycles you’ve ever seen piloted by smiling riders in clothing to match. The friendly atmosphere might remind you of why you took up this sport in the first place. Post-ride, enjoy the pasta party, awards ceremony and memories to last a lifetime.
Day 5 – Morning airport shuttles
*The vintage jersey and socks are yours to keep while the bike stays with us.
