Details

In una settimana abbiamo andare in bicicletta da Venezia a Milano. Potremmo effettivamente fare questo, dicono settembre 2018?

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/20816976 This route, or something like it. I've ridden part of this route. If you're looking for tens of thousands of feet of climbing, this isn't it. It's flat, flat, flat. Beautiful, but flat. Interesting, but flat. A route with charming piazzas, espresso, biscotti, pasta, vino, Campari, you get the idea.

Attitude: E 'l'Italia!!!!!!

Ride Host: Ed Lanton. [masked]; [masked]

HELMETS must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request.

Reality check: Why not? With just a little planning this should be doable. Amongst us we have a lot of experience in traveling in Italy. So why not? My goal is to start a planning committee of about 5 people to plan this for 2019. Please contact me if you are interested in being on the committee

Recommended Gear: Always bring plenty of water, on for energy, a flat repair kit, including a spare tube. A tool kit and small pump is good, but if you don’t have one there is usually someone on a group ride who does. Please check to see if someone has what you might need if you don't and be prepared to ride a bus or call a cab. (Not that we'll leave you by the road broken down, because that's not us). Carry a credit card and a little cash to buy refreshments or buy that bus ticket....

Mandatory for all riders: Obey traffic laws and remember you’re a representative of the greater cycling community and should conduct yourself that way on the road. Please represent us well. If you haven't read it lately please read the Oregon Bicyclist Manual (http://goo.gl/Q8FNe3)

All riders must have their rides in good working order and must bring a flat kit & spare tube. If there is an issue with proper working or lack of equipment you may be asked to sit the ride out. Please ask for help if you are ill equipped prior to the ride. We will try to help!

All riders must be able to change a flat should they have one or have a way to get picked up (AAA, Tri-Met ticket, a friend…). There is often, but not always someone on the ride who knows how to help you change your tire, so plan accordingly.

Note: Your RSVP signifies that you agree to the following. Organizers, event hosts and other participants will not be held responsible for any individual at any event. Each rider rides at their own risk and is solely responsible for any damage to their equipment or themselves.

Final Note: RSVP’s cannot include a +1 or Guest. If you choose to bring a friend or family member, they themselves must sign up as a member of Go the Distance.
