Hail the returning Heros of L'Eroica! I'm sure the rest of us were all with you in spirit if not in the flesh. Personally, I'm jealous & would've love d to have been there. Loved all the pics and reports, keep 'em coming pleas e.

One question: What tires did you use and would you switch to someth ing different? These are all pre 1980 bikes so I'm assuming there were most ly race or touring style bikes? Would a wider tire have worked better or ma de any difference at all? How fast can you go on those white roads anyway? OK, that's more than one question - I'll stop now...
