The 54th birthday of my father was the occasion to collect an old photo album, after digitilized them with a scanner I have decided to make him a gift!!! A video of that adventure from Inzago (the town where we live) to Siena, a bike trip with a friend of him in the august of 1980, concluded with the incredible atmosphere of the famous Palio in Piazza del Campo!!! That year the winner was the Leocorno ridden by Aceto, one of the most famous rider of the Palio!!!
Unfortunately, there are not many photos of the bikes (except for the one at the top of Passo Zovallo), but you can see the places they visit during the journey, the leaning tower of Pisa, the typical hills of Tuscany and some shot of the traditional race in Siena.
This bike trip was the first of a series, maybe was the one that inspired me to travel by bike (who knows?!).
In 1980 there were no professional bags like Ortlieb, no low-weight tents like the one I use today, I think it was an amazing adventure!!!
Come on, let's go back to 1980!!!
