Ok, I'm off to Europe again to ride, ride, ride my bike and since it's so heavy around here with all the Landis-HHSNBN business, I figured I'd talk about something that makes me happier than that. AND, I'm hoping you people will be game to help out if you can with all your worldly knowledge.
Here's what going down. Each year I do a little tour with my company Cima Coppi, which first was only me, and now will be two and hopefully in the future will be more people who want to join. It's our chance to play 'sponsored rider' for one-three weeks and enjoy the best part about bikes...the riding.
I'll be going to Spain this year, leaving July 10th and Returning Aug.15th. I plan to rider for 2.5-3 weeks of that time. One from July 18th-23rd and then Aug.1ish-Aug 13th or so. I've set up the first week which can be seen on the Cima Coppi Blog right now and I'm looking for feedback on my route from those who have done parts or all of said route.
Also, any suggestions outside of the actual ride prep, which I'm pretty comforatable with, would be very welcomed. So, if you know that there is a better road than one I've chosen, a landmark I absolutely cannot miss, or a tunnel I can't go through, cause you've been there before. Let me hear it. Then, follow the blog as I ride the route if you're down with that kind of thing.
Then, I'll owe you all big time when I'm in a place to include more peeps who want to join in this and hook you up! (mini five year plan hinted at there.)
PS, Other suggestions for the period of Aug1-Aug 13 are also something I would love to hear cause I haven't really planned that out yet. I do know that the Clásica de San Sebastián is on July 31 (so I might ride the route the next day), and the Vuelta a Burgos is on from Aug.4th.
