another fun ride called by Dave M:

Hello All,

"Let us don our tattered woolens and resurrect that faded, almost forgotten Milanese eagle which symbolised the epoch of cycling".

Time to get yer Bianchi goin.... Or

Any vintage Italian bike from the Coppi era 1939 to 1960 Or

Any vintage bike. Or

Any bike. All are welcome.

Join me and Linda for the annual Fausto Coppi Memorial Ride and Luncheon. We will meet on Saturday January 14, 9:30 with a 10:00 depart at Woodside School.

The ride will be about 25 miles or so with a relaxed pace. Afterward, rejoin the group at Bucca di Beppo, 643 Emerson St. Palo Alto, (650) 329-0665. Reservations will be for 2:30pm. We will dine on such a meal that would make mama Coppi proud. Please RSVP me if you're going to be joining us at Bucca. Non riders are welcome. Bring anything related for show and tell.

We will celebrate the times of the heroic and tragic figure which captivated a generation - Fausto Coppi!

Regards, David Martinez
