Velo Veneto - Ciclismo Italiano !

Stories from the Velo Veneto bike racing camp in Castelcucco, Italy

Location: San Francisco, California, United States

I'm a 50 year old kid who loves to race bikes. I operate a bike racing camp in Northern Italy. When not in Italy I have the good fortune of living in one of the best places to ride, the Northern California Wine Country.

Tour of California Training Camp

Friday night dinner at "Syrah"

What at fantastic weekend we had for the Tour of California training camp weekend. We had a enough sun to keep everyone happy and did about 300 kilometers of riding with about 11,000 feet of climbing in three days. The dining was wonderful.
