Â The well known cycling tour operators, Ciclismo Classico, approached me quite some time ago with an interest in having a banner on the CR web sit e. As you may know, the few (6) banner sponsors there provide the funding fo r the web site hosting costs. In any case, as cycles de ORO derives virtuall y zero business from vintage bikeÂ - it's truly a hobby for me - Â Â I decided to step aside to make room for these folks, especially n ow that they have a special focus on a an event dear to my heart...
Here's the official announcement:
<< Ciclismo Classico is an award-winning tour operator of European cycling trips, celebrating itâs 20th year! The season includes a once-in-a-lifetime adventure of cycling Tuscany and riding the classic Lâ Eroica event, celebrating vintage bicycles and gear in Tuscany. Local, expert leade rs will show you their country like a local, and introduce you to the sights, tastes and cultures that make Italy the best place on earth to ride. http://www.cic lismoclassico.com. >>
I hope you will support this organizationm and all the CR web site's banner advertisers, as they are our kind of folks! Thanks to all.
