Brothers & Sisters of the Wheel,

I'll be across the pond in Italy around Lake Como area and my dream is to ride from Bellagio to the Madonna del Ghisallo bike church on the 1st or 2nd of June. I could probably rent a modern bike but it would mean so much more to me to be able to do it on a classic machine. Unfortunately I can't bring one of my own but I would be more than willing to rent one from a CR list member. I can ride anything between 58 and 62cm and my typical lowest gears at home are 42 chain ring and 28 freewheel (can I make it to the church on that??). I'll be bringing my own "traps 'n straps". Thanks very much in advance for your help.

Regards, Eric
