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.

Dave Linden - Day 3

Velo Veneto Racing Camp – Italy - Day Three: The closest race today (Sunday) was well
over two hours away so Pat declared today a rest day. We did an easy (but hilly) 25 miles in
the area around Castlecucco including a brief stop in the nearby town of Asolo. The roads and
the views were simply breathtaking.

Here’s this week’s Velo Veneto team and staff:

Here’s a photo I took in the hills above Castlecucco. This is a two way road, not a bikeway:

Later in the day we drove about five minutes from the hotel to watch a UCI U-23 race do
four circuits up a very steep hill nearby. This was at the 100k mark of a 170 km race.

Tomorrow it’s back to racing!
