Halloween ride at Lago di Garda
Geplaatst op donderdag 5 november 2015 om 13:47
beautiful lake, sunshine, enthusiastic women on bikes: the perfect
mix for an amazing ride and day! Our Italian pro-cyclist Valentina
Scandolara started the day in Garda with a "buongiorno" to the
brave women (and few men) who showed up! We rode along the lake..
Vale always says Garda is her favourite place in the world and
everyone today realized why… It is stunning there!!!
We soon splitted the group and met
each other again in Brenzone for a good Italian coffee, right on
the lakeshore. We took time to chat with each other and snap some
funny pics. We enjoyed our way back, always talking with the girls
and answering a lot of their questions, asking some on their daily
life, and - yes, we say that again, as it's never enough - loving
our view on the lake: Vale is 100% right! Once we got back to
Garda, we greeted some of our new friends, promising each other
that this will be just the first of more rides like this, and
stayed for lunch with the few girls who could stay longer.
We found out that Loes made friends
with a waiter in the morning, as he shouted something in Dutch to
her in the square, and we therefore decided to sit at his
restaurant's table. This was an awesome choice as we had a really
good lunch and very polite service. We talked about the day, and
one of the best comments we got was 'it felt like a schooltrip,
everybody was so excited'!
That's what makes us happy and
tells us that we reached what we (and Strongher) aim for: to bring
women together, ride and share stories with them, and feel, at the
end of the day, that each one of us got home enriched and had a
very good time. We hope to live a day like today very soon.
Thanks to everyone involved,
Vale and Loes!
