Even now, I'm rushing out the door to catch a train for the next phase of this adventure. Tomorrow I'm racing in one of Italy's biggest cycling events, the Granfondo Italia.
In some respects, yesterday was typical. I groggily stumbled off an airplane, retrieved my luggage, and read signs to orient myself to new surroundings. I found transportation to race headquarters, where I met the promoter and a few of the sponsors. The next tasks were to assemble my bike, go for a spin, Nike Coat Mens
Held late at night in an eerily deserted, graffiti covered industrial neighborhood, the event is promoted with style and flare that contrasts the typical bike race so sharply as to feel irreverent. For example, registration, which is open to anyone, takes place in an art gallery and coincides with a photo exhibit. The post race party moves to a bar and features a press conference with the top finishers. I've raced the Red Hook Crit three times, and it stands out as one of my all time favorite cycling experiences.
I'm here for the Red Hook Crit on October 15; it's a unique race that requires competitors to use brakeless fixed gear on a narrow, technical criterium course. The race, which started in Brooklyn, New York, is equal parts competition and cultural event.

They are the competitive equivalent of the huge charity rides we have in the States, and I'm eager to see how my US honed road skills fare in a fast, crowded, and chaotic sea of Europeans.
For some cyclists, this is the case. Since the team racing has ended, many will hang up their shoes and play video games. But not me. I'm rolling full steam ahead!

and move into my housing for the next few days.
Traveling on my own can be a challenge, but it allows more time and opportunity for adventure. For instance, as I rode home from race registration late last night, I happened upon an enormous group of cycling rights demonstrators and rolled through the dark streets of Milan with hundreds of like minded, two wheeled Italians.
Now, I'm afraid that may have been misleading, implying that cycling is over for the year and Nike Crewneck Black
