Ready for l'Eroica


L'Eroica is a bike race in Tuscany that my friend David and I are entered in next month. We will ride 135 km (80 miles) in the hilly wine region of Chianti. Half of this distance will be over gravel roads. The hills have up to a 16% grade -- steep. I just got my bike all tuned up and ready to go-- put on a set of cyclocross tires with Kevlar linings, that should help me avoid flats. The Lemond looks tough with the cyclocross tires on, don't you think?
