PS: There might be slight changes, since this is early.  Roberto has worked to get the prices down.  Like here, costs have risen in Europe as well.  We are staying more days at Gabicce to help counter the higher costs of the other hotels.  Also, some of the rides could change or be enhanced.

Bring your own pedals.  You can bring your own saddle, but not mandatory.

You need to be a member of the Sac Wheelmen, so join and come along!
